Think he is on a 22 match streak from the clay season so can he carry it on to the grass? I think he has a flippin' good chance.

With the current level in men's tennis i would send all the players in the top 20 to a shrink by the end of the grass season if that happened + i would join them.

Definitely no.

You never know.
I could never imagine the person of your avatar could score two goals in the Final Champions league. And there you are, Diego, Inter's hero, fully deserved.

Of course you can never know ;) Actually i had Milito as my avatar for months before he scored in Champions League final because i believed in him from the start :)
Anyway i don t know about Queens but I am on the Duck for Wimbledon,we will see.

He has alot of good players against him but he should make it through, though roger is still nr.1 contender

Nadal has the luxury of going in both tournaments as the Number 1 without the pressure of defending any points. Every game won, every point earned is a pure bonus. Having said that, not for one minute will he let his foot off the gas. He's won both tournaments back to back before, he will try to do so again.

Don't care much for Queens one way or the other. As for Wimbledon, I just hope Rafa can get to the semi-final.

I think Roddick will win Queens.

Fed will win Wimbledon, his last slam win, btw...

I don't think anyone won slams for 9 consecutive years...

It is not like he has not done it before. It seems virtually certain that Nadal or Federer will win Wimbledon.

Actually, he is even on a 24 match streak on clay, coz he won in December 2009 two matches in DC final!

I don't get the point in open this kind of threads. The level of bias-ism is so high in this forum that most of its posts will be based on wishful-thinkings.

Possibly but Roddick and Murray will be tough to beat at Queens and Wimbledon. He should have no problem if Fed is in the final though. :D

Nadal beat Roddick at Queens Final 2008. And Roddick and Federer played a Wimbledon Final full of unforced errors and horrific groundstrokes in 2009. Nadal would own both of them.

Murray isn't at Nadal's level on grass. Nadal beat Murray 6-3 6-2 6-4 at Wimbledon semi the same year Murray made the US Open final.

Nadal owned everyone in 2008. Even a red hot Federer and it took a rain delay to prevent it from being straight sets. Nadal is not as confident in 2010 imo but he is close. The serve seems to be a little weaker imo.

But that's his clay court streak, doesn't have anything to do with grass in Queens and Wimbledon. Rafa is on a 22 match streak at the moment (doesn't matter where) so the question was can he carry it on:wavey:

Nadal is on a 12 match (not counting exos) grass win streak too.

He certainly can. How quickly people forget (or block out or ignore) 2008 when he did just that.

Certainly he won`t win in straight sets every match like he did in the French Open but he has his chances.Queens it will be tough but Wimbledon will be the main priority.On grass in most matches it will come down to a couple of points and lots of tiebreakers.Against someone like Murray or Roddick it would be a 50-50 match on grass and he will be slight underdog to Federer.Also big servers like Soderling,Karlovic, Berdych and even someone like Hewitt can trouble Nadal and even beat him if he doesn`t serve well

Considering this is an American forum, you are right, I have no idea about football (in the American sense), but I do understand quite a lot about soccer, the sport Diego Milito plays for Inter. If I had no idea about the sport I wouldn't have recognized the guy, don't you think? I just can tell you for example that he is the only player who has beaten Casillas four times in a match, and I saw that match live at the Zaragoza pitch with my father. But scoring two goals in a final of the Champion is not usual at all, especially for Italian teams that score one goal and have the tendency to defend the result. I am a girl, but I love playing and watching sport.

i think he is a lock for queens. i know the draws ok, but i think he will be fine and win the whole thing.

wimbledon will be tougher, but he is in the luxury position of #1 with nothing to defend.

What a difference a hardcourt season does to kill his confidence. He is great on clay and grass.

That's a laugh.

Fed was typical Fed starting from Monte-Carlo. He got to the final and gave Nadal a tough match. He always struggles in Rome. He did great in Hamburg and almost beat Nadal. He did great at RG and people were mentioning he was having his best RG until the finals disaster. lol Then he dominates Halle and Wimbledon until Nadal again.

Queens certainly, but I don't know if he'll have enough left in the tank to go all the way at Wimbledon.

Of course he can. Come on. There are people saying that Rafa's not as "confident" as he was in 2008, but hello, neither is Fed.

Fed can not and will not beat Rafa at a Slam or anywhere else. People like Roddick, Muzz, and Soderling have a pretty good chance but I wouldn't put money on it.
