Who can challenge Nadal at the French when defending the backhand corner?Its highy doable but you have to stay there mentally and not choke on big moments.

uninspired trolling.

Why is Gonzalez in your list? Everyone else I can understand but Gonzalez? Cmon, he is old and cant hit a backhand.

How about you put Gonzalez and Blake as one group.

I am also missing a group consisting of Sam Querrey, Mardy Fish and Ivo Karlovic.

Who will take a set from Nadal? Group 1 mostly because of Djokovic. Fitdave has retired a long time ago, but fatdave could still be fun to watch play Nadal.

Verdasco and Wawrinka are also worth to be mentioned, they could cause an upset and take a set from Nadal if they play perfect tennis.

Ferrer, Davydenko and Murray could all do a good job tiring Nadal out for whoever will face him in the next round.

Prince too.

Hahah, I remember when people said Haas could take out Nadal in Australia..

Nadal won something like 4,2 and 2.

Anyway, the only person who can beat Nadal in a best of five is Nadal himself.

Great thread. We can analize here all the matchups and the past results from clay in the last 5 years, then predict possible outcomes for RG this year.

Either that or we can fiercely crush our testicles with two large rocks while we sing Mozart's Confutatis.

It sounds equally appealing and constructive to me.

ANY poll concerning Roland Garros is useless in this era. This particular one is the most useless of them all.

Where's Fish. Have you not seen the Fish thread.

Djoker and Fed if Fed gets his shit together.

I'd say the first group but Rafael is too good when he's playing at RG... it's HIS HOME. No one can take his title off.
