Interesting, curious fact about Rafael Nadal in Montecarlo

En route to reaching the final in Montecarlo, Rafael Nadal defeated 5 players. See what they did in 2004 Roland Garros:

Gael Monfils: 2004 RG Junior Champion
Xavier Malisse: 2004 RG Doubles Champion (w/Rochus, O.)
Olivier Rochus: 2004 RG Doubles Champion (w/Malisse, X.)
Gastón Gaudio: 2004 RG (Singles) Champion
Richard Gasquet: 2004 RG Mixed Doubles Champion

Isn't that cool?

(And next one is Coria. We all know his relation with the French tournament.)

so Coria wins, he didn't win at RG 2004, so Nadal can't beat him :p

But Coria was the 1999 Junior RG Singles Champion, so he would fit on the list too... ;)

Interesting observation, Yashirobai!

ah, but now I see that the focus was on 2004... so maybe you are right, Cervantes. ;)

But Coria won roland garros junior 99 against Nalbandian.

That is impressive, but it will be interesting to see if Nadal will have enough in the tank at Roland Garros after his busy schedule plus, in Roland Garros the draw is bigger and the sets are out of 5 not 3.

Nadal beat all the winners of 2004 FO but is likely to lose to the only Loser of 2004 FO

That's interesting. And it's safe to say Rafael is definitely a contender for this year's French Open.

Now we're going back to 2003 RG Singles Champion. Hopefully that will be a different story. Sorry Nadal, Juan Carlos was not that brilliant at 2004 RG... but at 2003 RG. Come on Juan Carlos!
