What a stupid #$%^&!!!! What is their IQ?
It's not 3-1 vs. 2-0, but 1-1 vs. 0-2!
(not even 2-0 vs.0-2)
Sigh, it's really suspicious if they are properly educated
Rogersgirl, writers of tennis-X are already infamous of stupid, deviated and sacarstic articles. So, ignoring is the best remedy. Don't be hurt by that kind of a crap
a typical behavior of mass media. They are like a school of sharks, craving for tearing a prey into 'pieces' anytime when it looks vulnerable. And at the moment they just need a new and fresh prey since Roger won almost every GS and tournaments he involved last year. If Nadal won't get good results on hard courts during latter half of this year, I bet they'll do the exactly same thing to him. And mind his age. He is now young and fresh, which is what they are impressed the most and get crazy about him, IMO.
Like lina said, Nadal has a looooooot of things to prove himself as a player. Yet he is way far from reaching Roger's status in many respects, e.g. level of play, achievements, entry ranking points(6980 vs 3600? ha! come on!
). He is already a great player on clay but I don't think he is yet on other surfaces.
In order to comfort our beloved, yet fragile
Roger fans, here I compare and summerze his performances of 2004 & 2005
 / 
Doha: - / W
AO: W / SF
Rotterdam: Q / W
Dubai: W / W
IW AMS: W / W
Miami AMS: 3rd / W
Monte Carlo AMS: - / QF
Rome AMS: 2nd / -
Hamburg AMS: W / W
RG: 3rd / SF
Total W of tour: 4 (1 GS, 2AMS) / 6 (0 GS, 3AMS)
Win/loss(includ. DC matches) 31/4 (35/4) / 46/3
W/L % 88.6% (89.7) / 93.9%
As you can see, Roger's been doing better than he did last year, by far. And even the number of GS wins, which everybody counts, are just ONE-SHORT!!!!
It's true that this year he've been challenged, which however has been already predicted and is somewhat inevitable and necessary. Besides, I believe it's more important that he haven't lost to any players who he is supposed to win against.
I think the upcoming Wimbledon is really really important for Roger. If that RG match significantly affected his confidence(I don't think it did), it'd be not good. But once he defends the Wimbledon(and Canada Masters), there'll be no problem for the rest of this year. This is truly the moment of truth for him, I think.
