nadal's last non-clay title was indian wells 2009.
thats 13 months and counting.

where will he win his next non-clay title?
or is he back to being a clay court specialist?

I'll go for, I don't really care, at least he's won titles :)

At least he's been consistent, and winning on his best surface, clay. Why aren't the others doing the same and consistently winning on their own best surface? It's not Nadal's fault that though he's tried to not win on clay alone and try to adapt his game to HC while the other players have not extended the same respect and try to adapt to clay also, to give him more competition.

I think he can only win titles on clay these days.

Has not won off clay since IW 2009.

He has regressed to being a bonafide clay court specialist.

sad but true!

is this his worst run without winning a title outside of clay?
i seem to recall he always had a non-clay title even when playing badly in the past.

i really dont know how a player that hasnt won a title outside of clay can be the world number 1.
this is like thomas muster back in the day gobbling up all the clay titles thus stealing the number 1 ranking.
roger was asked this in halle and he said the ranking system is weird.
i agree with federer on this.

I'm going to guess Canada or Shanghai. Wimbledon may be a strong possibility though.

Dunno. When will Murray or Djokovic win a title on ANY surface? Federer is probably going to win his first in 6 months by playing in a 250 event on his favourite surface without a single other top player in the draw. In other words... what does it matter?

atleast roger's fans have slams to rely on, because federer always performs his best in slams apart from one hiccup in the french open this year. federer is great on all surfaces, so he can win at anytime.
we rafa fans gotta wait till the next clay season to see him bite his next trophy.

You're the strangest Nadal "fan" I've come across. The guy is as good [better] than anyone not named Federer on grass and very good on outdoor HC aswell, just this year he had match points in Doha remember against an in form Davydenko who is an awful match up. He won't ever dominate on these surfaces like on clay but I'd frankly be surprised if he goes another ten months without any titles.

i don't see any - tried with firefox and safari. as i said in the www thread, let's wait for the draw first. but obviously Federer will be hard to take out - and to a lesser extent imo, Rafa too. but then again let's not get carried away and wait for the draw.

Rafa's not gonna win another title until Acapulco 2011. And that's if he plays there, apparently there are rumors he might show up there in 2011.
