Did Nadal just send a message to the field?

Normally he has his usual 3rd round difficulties, but this time he was determined to put on a show: 53 winners 8 UFEs. I think he wants to put the biggest doubt in the minds of potential roasters(Tsonga, Murray, Nole, Fed) that he can't be beaten right now.

I think ur right... Tho i feel Nadal will lose here. lol

I didnt see the whole match but from the higlights it looked like Haas wanted to suck Rafa's dick by the way he played. Having said that everyone of the top four is trying to send a message so yes. I dont thik this match means much though, i think the real test comes in the form of Simon/Monfils and Murray/Tsonga.

It just seems at the moment the current favorites(based on form) are:

1. Murray
2. Nadal
3. Federer
4. Nole

Ruanz, once again, you post nothing but bollocks.
Nadal is playing well, but none of the top 4 have been tested, we'll see what they are made up against competent opponents.

if rafa reaches the final he will win the slam

01-24-2009, 08:58 PM
If Federer reaches the final, he wins.

Looks tough, but he's had cake draw so far - Rochus and Karanusic laughable and Haas dreadful

after the 1st match against a serious opponent we will know
