Some folks going overboard with the over-hype again. Let's await how he does on grass first - hasn't played the stuff in two years, bar two exho matches.

If he gets lucky at Queens wherein one of the grass court threats (murray, roddick, djoker?) go out early, he'll make it 27.

The history of Nadal threads on this board invariably go from "Is he finished for Tennis ?" to "Will someone beat him again"

So true, if there was a graph, this would be the high point. He loses another match and it'll be back to will his knees every be okay and will he ever win another slam/tourney again

Mjau!

Lol, from zero to hero in two months. :lol:

Expect more "should Nadal retire?" threads before the year is over.

Losing to Bye would be pretty low, but possible.

He should pull out of Queens imo. Rest up a week and play the next tourney before wimbly.

It's not a thread about Rafa's supremacy. It's just a question when his streak will end :p

He'll probably win a few rounds in Queens then lose. All he's set to gain there is a bit of match practice on the green stuff anyways, shouldn't try too hard. Though knowing him he may..

The first real test for Rafa would be his buddy Feliciano in QF Queen's. With his game - Lopez could be of course extremely dangerous on grass and probably one of the most dangerous players in Wimbledon (I know it sounds laughable, but his game is just made for grass).

If Lopez doesn't get him - he would have a test with Murray / Cilic in semis and with Djokovic / Roddick in final.

I don;t believe that Rafa wins Queen's, but I also don;t believe that he might lose in the early rounds to Daniel, Kavcic or Istomin - Nadal just doesn't lose to such players and he wouldn't lose even on ice to them.

Realistically - he will play 2-3 matches in Queen's (I am actually expecting him to lose to Lopez = that is if Lopez the Mug reaches that far, cause he might as well lose to Dimitrov / Boggo and it will not be a shock).

But it doesnt change a fact that he is still one of the favs to win Wimbledon.

So the streak should end in Queen's. but if it doesn't end there - it could as well end in American Masters somewhere.

No, its not good to play before the slam. He needs 1 week rest before wimby, its better to lose qf at Queens, he would have played 2 matches and thats a good preparation.

Someone has lost to 'bye' before, but I can't view the full player activity to see who it is :sad:

Could be as early as this week in Queens. Could be Toronto/Cincinnati. Depends on a lot of factors, not all up to him.

he didn't play any official match on grass for some time so there's no certainty he would win everything all of a sudden. I wouldn't be surprised if he did though. Hard one to predict. I'd be delighted if he won Wimbledon again and so I'd say he'll lose somewhere in American hard court

Yeah think he won't be bothered with Queens, nothing to defend and will only want to feel good fro Wimbledon, so i reckon he will retire or pull out after 2 matches.
