I am a Rafa fan and I want him to be between seeds 5-8 in RG 2010!

And let's see what happens:) Rafa is number 1 or 2 continuously for almost 4.5 years. What will the so called future-bright players like Djokovic, Murray and Del Potro do when they become 1 or 2? Will they stay at that point long enough like Rafa? I think Rafa haters understand his worth for tennis at that time. Rafa proved himself and booked his place in tennis history. 6 GS championships in 8 finals in 3 different surfaces. What will Djokovic, Murray and Del Potro do? Here are the stats for them:

Djokovic: 1 GS championship in 2 finals in 1 surface
Murray: 0 GS championship in 2 finals in 1 surface
Del Potro:1 GS championship in 1 final in 1 surface

They haven't proved themselves yet. I hope Rafa would play with all of them in RG 2010!

2008 Roger was at an all time low. He is now back on top while Nadal is at an all time low. Besides I think Roger tanked that 2008 final. Would be far from ideal draw for Nadal whould he meet Roger in the QF.

Thats rubbish im sorry. Nadal played a marathon 5 setter vs Verdasco at the AO and soon after he was ready to go for yet another 5 set marathon without a problem. Fitness has never been a problem for him. He was outplayed through a masterclass performance by the GOAT. Simple as that.

Not blind at all. I wont deny that the altitude helped him a bit, but it was mainly teh way he changed his game plan against Nadal that day. This was in stark contrast to how he played against Nadal on clay before. He ran around his bh and ripped the forehand. He played attacking tennis all the way through never allowing Nadal to settle. He even started the match playing mind games with Nadal by making him wait for him at teh net, which already got Nadal off balance. You have to be a smart tennis analyst to undertstand what happened that day though, i wouldnt expect it from teh average tennis board poster.

He was ready for another five setter but in only 3 sets of them:) Rafa didn't give much effort on the 2 sets that he lost against Federer that day to conserve his power like a car's running in the idle mode. Of course it was risky, but at the and he won so he was right. He gave all his power in the three sets that he won. I think it was also a wise decision and showed his tennis intelligence because to beat Federer in 3 or 4 sets in that final 2days after a 5+ hour match was very hard to accomplish. So he gave all his power not to fall behind in sets 1,3 and 5.

Nadal has a 9-2 record against Federer on clay & would be the heavy favourite in any match at R.G. But it would be great fun to watch Fed defying the odds & taking him down, especially with several hundred quid riding on the result. Realistically though, Fed is going to have to get his slam wins against Nadal elsewhere.

if they meet in the semis, he just needs to be in the other quarter of fed's half. being seeded 4th -as i anticipate that Nadal will be by the time of RG- will quarantee him that with a probability of 50%

we'll see what happens. everyone expects fed to lose only against nadal in RG but surprises might always happen and people seem to forget that in tennis. last year nobody was expecting soda to trash nadull in the fourth round, for example.

I dont expect Nadull to be in Rogers quarter of teh draw first of all, the chances are only 25% after all. I dont think Roger will lose to a surprise player, you should know better than to compare Roger with Nadal in slams. Roger does not lose to surprise players in slams. Period. If he loses it will be against Potro or Nadal, thats it. I think hes got a great chance of defending his title, and then he will be in touch of the GS itself.

You obviously are in desperate need to reassure yourself. You know what to do reassure yourself even more? Compare Nadal to the likes of Troicki or even Berrer that way his achievements will look even greater.

Why do people think Fed's got a better chance of winning R.G. if Nadal is seeded lower? That way he's got more chance of meeting Nadal before the final, & Nadal has less chance of getting knocked out before meeting Fed. If Nadal is fit & showing his usual clay-court form, he is the heavy favourite. Fed will no doubt be more relaxed & less crap than in 2008, but still....

well, hopefully you're right but all things end someday. do you seriously expect that Federer will keep his semifinal streak at GS until the day he retires? It will end before that, I guarantee you.

unlike other times, last year fed probably had the toughest RG ever in the sense that he really had to fight to get to the final. Remember that he almost lost to Haasi in the QF, had some problems with Acasuso and Pony boy could have taken him out in the semis. Still he managed to do it. I kind of thought there was something bizarre and weird in the way the whole tournament went. I know it's sounds crazy but it was as if Fed was somehow destined to win it.

Not crazy at all. This will sound crazy to you, but after Madrid i predicted Roger would win teh FO. When Nadull lost, the pressure was immense on Roger to win the whole thing, so you cant really use that as a measuring stick. Expect Roger to go through teh draw this year much easier, with teh FO monkey off his back. As for the semi-final streak, i think it could go on for a very long time still. I thought it would end this year to Denko at the AO, but now i think it will take a freak accident to stop him. The guy is just scary when it comes to teh slams.

However, I will not deny that, for me, it would be .... hrmm juicy :devil: - if those 10% come to pass, i.e. Federer flying in full flight, firing on all cylinders, using the court, slices, aces, volleys, dropshots etc etc - and beating a fully fit Rafa who isn't injured and plays well himself, in a tight 4-set match. :angel:

Yep. Chance of that happening is merely 25%, and even less in reality, as there is no guarantee that either of the two even make it to the QF. Laugh at me all you like, but I very well remember that one of these two guys didn't manage to do so, last year... :o

Nadal can't lose either way :cool: if he's beaten then he was obviously injured and if he wins he's just the superior player... Talk about having no pressure... :rolleyes: :o

:lol: I found it a bit disgraceful that he retired against Murray after being clearly outplayed. Murray deserved to get the win teh right way that day. Nadal should have continued like he did in Rotterdam :o

Nadal was really injuried. He is out 1 month. Besides that, Nadal isn't doubtfull, always tries to finish his matches like Federer does.

One question, will Roger come to Spain in Davis Cup? We could see that match in March.

Why would he bother coming? :confused:

Maybe he would like to win Davis Cup. To be real Nº1, he needs 1 Davis Cup at least, Nadal has 3.

Beat us after 11 years in a row at home must be impossible for him.

If Nadal were from Roger's country he'd have 0 Davis Cups, just like Roger :shrug: tennis is an individual sport. Period.

But Roger could play and win 3 matches each round.

Nadal has won rounds without team, against Italy or France for example.

So you are saying that Rafa is therefore the real nr 1? :silly:

But Roger could play and win 3 matches each round.

Thats why Nadulls knees are 100 years old while Roger is still winning 3/4 slams. Your logic makes no sense. Thank god Roger doesnt think like you :o

Likewise, the question can be reversed: will Nadal play the DC in march?

It's funny, now that Nadal hasn't been doing so well lately, I've noted the absence of many notorious and vocal Nadal tards like mad world, Logical, RafitoGoat, RafawonCYGS, Start_da_Game (banned I think) and others whose names I can't even remember. I've no doubt they will come back en masse the minute Rafa starts doing well... But for the minute Fedtards should celebrate that they're outnumbering the Nadaltards lol

Most of them don't care about DC since we have Federer.

Thats rubbish im sorry. Nadal played a marathon 5 setter vs Verdasco at the AO and soon after he was ready to go for yet another 5 set marathon without a problem. Fitness has never been a problem for him. He was outplayed through a masterclass performance by the GOAT. Simple as that.
You're an idiot. The Madrid final was a joke, the real final was the Nadal/Djokovic SF.

Ahhhh RG 2008 final, best match of all time. 4. Four.

People in Switzerland are happy enough with Fed's 16 slams and couldn't care less about Davis Cup ;)

just sayin', no need to get angry, mate.

Why all the anger mate? RG 2008 was one of the most boring one sided matches ever. Probably the worst slam final ever.

This. You cant say a match was teh final when neither player won teh title. Everyone knows that old sport. For instance you can say Fedenko at the AO was teh real final, if you believe that.
