What does this mean for Nadal?

He was utter shit out there today. Horrid. :help: He struggled against Novak as well, and to a lesser degree Verdasco. Has he ever put in this bad a performance so close to RG time?

Wow, this means nothing for Nadal. It means he needs some rest before RG.

05-17-2009, 04:00 PM
Absolutely not. That time that Federer gave him a bagel, for example? Exceptional stuff from Nadal. But this? This ... was different. Clearly Nadal needs to pull out of the next three tournaments if he has any hopes of salvaging his pride.

-That he's beatable on clay

-That Federer can still beat him

-That he needs to work on shortening his matches and rely less on his physical/mental strength to get through

It means that he can go to RG without the extra pressure of not being beaten on clay the whole season. He´s still the man to beat when playing best of 5 sets.

05-17-2009, 04:13 PM
For a guy as competitive as Rafa, it means nothing.
He will only come back with more passion and will to win, just like he did year after year at Wimbledon until he beat Federer.

Nadal is still the best by far on clay and taking 3 sets from him in a best of five will be a completely different story.

To be fair, it wouldn't mean much to Rafa (ofcourse winning a title is always preferred over losing one). But it will mean a whole lot for Federer for the rest of the year.

He knows he has the game to beat Nadal (perhaps not at RG but at other important events). He will know that Rafa with his extremely brutal playing style could always be fatigued (or have an injury). Therefore he needs to keep giving himself the opportunity to reach the finals and also winning them. :D

It means nothing except that Rafa was obviously fatigued from yesterdays epic win over Djokovic, and Federer had an easy semi-final against JMDP. Had the situation been reversed, Nadal would have won easily. Federer knows he got lucky, that's all.

Uncle Toni should be sacked.

Madrid plays nothing like RG, he'll win it without dropping a set. He didn't seem overly fussed either, probably disappointed to lose in his home tourney but he was smiling away, he'll be over it by tomorrow.

pica_pica
05-17-2009, 05:27 PM
Maybe he's too exhausted and probably a bit injured and doesn't want to risk too much today? Or yesterday's SF is too mentally draining for him?

Rafa will still be big big favorite for RG, but he needs to be aware of the combined effort of the field if he draws Nole in his half again.

Commander Data
05-17-2009, 05:31 PM
Surely, means something to Federer, means nothing to Nadal. Well. maybe it means that he should not use 7 hours to beat Djoker in the SF. but as we have seen in Melbourne, after 1 day rest, he is fine again...

This match means nothing to Nadal, but it means everything for Federer. The 5 match losing streak has been broken, that has got to be a huge lift for Federer. He will be coming up with all kinds of ambitions now.

Meanwhile, Nadal will be thinking 2 things: (1) i need to rest, (2) thank god roland garros has a nice clay :D

This match means nothing. Nadal's biggest threat (and that still isn't saying much) is Novak at RG. Let's hope Novak gets seeded with Roger so he doesn't end up doing the dirty work of fatiguing Nadal and Roger snatching the prize.

05-17-2009, 05:52 PM
The French Open is like playing on clouds in heaven, you could not get a more perfect surface for Nadal, he could play with major injuries and still win RG. And you won't see Djokovic/Federer/Murray taking a set from Nadal.

Massive overreaction. Neither Federer nor Djokovic has any chance against him at RG. The altitude and surface favoured them and Federer also had the fatigue factor working in his favour.

At RG Nadal will go straight through both of them if he has to. There is no threat at all to him from either player.

Fed=ATPTourkilla
05-17-2009, 06:07 PM
The only slight hiccup for Nadal is that Federer will draw confidence from this (which could help him at eg Wimbledon). It would have been preferable to keep his foot on Federer's throat.

Some adorable fuss out there! The most distingushing tennis competitor of Modern Era has lost ONE SINGLE clash due to OBIVOUS reasons like: little brief 4(four) hours training session vs. IMMENSLY refined and VASTLY motivated adversary which has happened to be played on extremly fast clay surface and after that Spanish Demiurge has been given something like 20-19 hours for recuperation to perform vs. fresh as morning daisy clumpsy big server Roger who has had Birthdays gift draw for this Masters and managed (to his fair merit and to his honour) to utilize stated above advantages perfectly, and MTF starts pinning great white hopes on great comeback of fallen Swiss giant...BUT!.............This is RG!....This is classical dirt which has been created for Nadal to slide on it, this is 5 set match rule, this is week of rest and! one day breaks between crucial final clashes..............I am strongly convicted to witness another mercyless spanking of Roger Federer ( if he manages to reach this stage) in the final, due to the simple fact - Rafael Nadal has NEVER been such a complete exuberant force as he happens to be this season.

No, Nadal doesn't need luck, he's already proven beyond a doubt that he's the best in the field on clay. Had the situation been reversed, Federer would never have made it to the final because Djoko would have crushed him in the semi-final.

lurker

why did rafa play barca ?????????? Uncle toni needs to re-evaluate the schedule!

No, the question is why did he play Madrid? It always has been, and they all knew ahead of time the altitude and conditions did not suit his preparation for Roland Garros. He loses control of the ball too often; ie his top spin is not as reliable here. And that little bit of speed of the ball through the air aids his first strike type foes.

This probably does not mean much as far as what Roland Garros will play out like. Unless Nadal played too much or has some injury and he is not 100%. He has always said he must be 100% and playing his best if he wants chances to beat Federer, and now he believes it too much. We know he didn't go 100% into the Madrid final.

What does this mean for Nadal? It means he lost a chance to win 3 AMS clay titles in a row, he lost a chance to win his 16th AMS title, he lost another (his 5th?) clay match and he lost a match to Federer on clay. For Federer, this means so much more. Not that he is going to win Roland Garros...he loses to more different people on clay than Nadal does... Even if it doesn't translate to success at Roland Garros this year, it does mean a lot for him to beat his rival no matter the circumstances.

It means: 1- Have some rest and refresh mind.
2- Don't sink too deep in a passive defensive wearing matches that last for days

3- Players are and 'll be trying so hard with new tactics and lesser tendency to hand the match so keep the focus and use your chances when they come as they won't come too much in big matches.

And then again, we're talking about a human here, Some day he's destined to lose.

This should mean alot and I mean ALOT if they face each other in the wimbledon final.

Federers confidence against Nadal has been a downward spiral. You had that streak of choking on the pre RG clay season 08 and the climax where Federers mentality and games crash in the RG final, he went to Wimbledon with all this in the bagage and lost a very close final, in AO it was even worse, he had the match in his hands but was constantly playing terrible on all the important points. In this match Federer played truly amazing tennis on all important points.

Whatever happens in RG I hope he can go with this match in mind to Wimbledon.

Back to answer the question it wont mean anything for Nadal and everything for Federer.

Exactly. Which is why, partly, I ALMOST would have preferred he lose to Novak yesterday. But, given the epic length of the match, and the circumstances, it was almost incumbent that Rafa NOT lose to Novak...or create a potential monster down the road. He crushed Novak's spirit, but, in doing so, built up Roger's.

Federer's mindset is so juvenile, than he could very well use this match as the boost of confidence he needs to up his game. HOWEVER, let's not forget: the main difference from 2007 and now...the emergence of Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic. Last year, he was on cloud 9 after the U.S. Open...but Murray took care of that.

Hopefully, this will prevent Rafa from being even slightly complacent...and will make him realize that he needs to play more aggressively himself...and not so far behind the baseline.

Nothing whatsoever.

The Madrid surface and the Roland Garros surface are completely different in their properties. Madrid surface benefitted the HC-style, attacking players, RG surely does not. Defense is what count at RG.

Rafa knows this as well as he should, being the best Defense-style player EVER.

Knowing Nadal´s view of the game, he will train harder to be in his best form on Roland Garros.

On the other hand, this unexpected victory of Federer, will sure give him a boost of confidence.

In the end, RG maybe will be more interesting that many thought it was going to be.

I don't think this will have any effect on RG because if Nadal plays properly he will just smoke everyone, like he does every year.

The potential effect is on the (probably Nadal v Federer) Wimbledon final, which is going to be the most important match of the year. Had Roger lost the Madrid final and then RG, he would have been on a terrible losing streak against Nadal and his head would have been all over the place for Wimbledon. But this will give him something to draw strength from and hopefully he will do something other than hit a choked backhand return into the net when he gets BP in the Wimbledon final.

Clearly Nadal needs to pull out of the next three tournaments if he has any hopes of salvaging his pride.LMAO The tool actually thought Nadal was waiting to roll on his back, smarmily wave his index finger and smugly greet the crowd like everyone should only call him beautiful. We should bow to Federer's attitude and grins. Worship the "Fed elegance and modesty are amazing to opponents. No one is more classy and respected" attitude.

He's a champion of self-congratulations and snide "I beat him" comments. Apparently, Nadal should cry and say Federer should get the 'last words'...
