When will Rafa lose again a match on clay? to whom? will his next loss on clay be the next time he gets injured while playing on clay? can he break the record of Chris Evert?
Do you think the rome final will be to roger what last year´s rome final was to coria, and that he will never get that close to beating rafa again?

He's only half way to Chris' record. I refuse to even consider that possible unless he hits 100 ;)

That andreev match was a tanko, but now that rafa has this record winning streak going he is going to keep it safe.

The only way he is going to loose is if he becomes exhausted or injured, or maybe if he loses interest (how long can he go on beating everyone, surely that will become boring one day). He is going to continue to own roger, and the rest of his little bitches on tour really have no chance of beating him.

I would like to see him play all 3 masters series on clay next year, there is nothing more for him to achieve on that surface. Hes guranteed to win all the others, so he needs a new challenge and I dont think anyone has won all 3 masters series in that year and rg?

Lets be realisitic, there are no excellent grass court players around to beat roger. Roger is the standout player, and then there only a few very good players (maybe nalbandian). There is such a limited field of good opposition grass, I think he will continue winning wimbledon for as long as he wants to. Add to the fact grass isnt such a demanding surface on the body, or mind.

There are many so called grass court specialists about, but they are not really top class players and provide no threat on a player like roger or the title. Its a total cakewalk for roger.

I would agree with you, if not for the stupid schedule. WIth Rome and Hamburg back to back, just before RG, it's simply not a good idea to play both because it will hurt his chances at RG :(
