If Del Potro bends down for Nadull he should be kicked off the tour. Obviously Nadull should've been kicked off the tour a long time ago but ATP is in his pocket.

ATP was always in Federer's pocket so stop messing around.
This will be a huge test for Rafa. Normally I would say that he will lose to Delpo in this situation, but I saw today that JMDP is very tired and he really struggled against Hanescu.
We will see, but let's hope that Rafa can pass through. So good to have him back on tour!

If Del Potro is on, he wins comfortably in straights, he will outhit Rafito.

Djokovic will beat either though I reckon.

It took a heck of an effort for Del Potro to win that match in Miami. Of course Nadal was almost at his best at that time of the year, and Del Potro wasn't at his complete best. But I think Nadal in 3 sets

Nadal leads Del Potro 4-1 and that ONE was this year when Nadal served for a straight sets victory and then had one of the first losses of concentration of his career. So I consider it 5-0 in reality.

How do you approach Nadal's comeback, are you more a Nadal fan than a Federer fan or do you half-hope that Nadal doesn't get back fitness, cos you know Federer can't beat him in a GS Final (apart from when Nadal was learning legal grass). Or do you want Federer not to win the US Open?

If shouder and back are bothering JMDP and he cant serve properly Nadal in 2.

If JMDP is feeling OK, he'll win in 3. Has firepower to straight set an out of form Nadal but far too inconsistant to do so.

I usually support the player that is in "worst" form (though, worst form for them is finals at big tournaments :lol: ) last year for example I fully rooted for Roger at the USO, this year I'll root for Rafa ;)

in this tournament I think Rafa has a better shot than Roger if he gets his groove back, because he isn't facing Murray (who's honestly the man to beat in these kind of tournaments) until the final ;)

and about Roger not being able to defeat Rafa, well, Rafa was still learning in 2006, but in 2007 he already was a force on grass and still Roger defeated him ;)

I'm not one of those stupid moronic retarded people who think that Rafa only loses when he is tired or injured, he's human, a very strong but nonetheless human ;)

There is something I don´t know: who will win (though I do know that Delpo is fighting to win while Nadal is fighting to recover form, which is not exactly synonimous).

There is something I do know: what will be the most popular comment on MTF just after the balls stops:

- If Nadal loses, it will be definitive proof that he (who is only a moonballer) is over and done for.
- If Nadal wins, Delpo will be proclaimed supermug and the Darth Vader of chokes.

Anybody who doesn´t concur with the above will be depicted as mentally derelict or (preferably 'and') a tard (of the Rafatard subtype).

I'm sorry for Delpo, seems he either chokes or else simply does the obvious, no glory for him whatever happens.

Obviously Nadull should've been kicked off the tour a long time ago but ATP is in his pocket.

Obviously on the charge of the abomination of having stripped the GOAT of 6 GS? Or maybe you are referring to the heinous crime of having licked most of the rest out of 15 MS1000? You're obviously in the know, Selyoink, please tell us.

Ok but Nadal had hardly won a match on grass when he got to the final in 2006 and his game wasn't attacking it was clayish back then, and this isn't an "excuse" (its a reason, cause and effect) but he did get a clear quad injury and was hampered in the 5th set of 2007 Final. Everyone has their opinion but the slow movement after the quad injury was as clear as mud.

Love this matchup and all the bile it inspires from MTF's sour balls. :hearts:

They prematurely ejaculate a bunch of hate here. But they still won't be able to help but watch this Pig and Pony Show nervously peeking through their fingers -- in case it turns out to be a genuine battle, unlike all the predictable loser and vainglorious winner nonsense of 98% of the ATP, including its many underachieving "artistes."

Win-win. If Del Potro wins, he continues to build on his progress this year and cements the fact that he's a contender at the Open. And Nadal's loss will have a slightly bitter taste for the pork chop lovers because most dislike Del Po almost as much.

If Nadal wins, the whining will reach new levels.

And I thought the whining couldn't get any worse. At least after Nadal won the Australian Open the haters actually gave up and stopped posting. Right now with Nadal about to return to form in Montreal and Cincy we are in that unfortunate 'in between stage of hate' whereby the Federators are angry but not angry enough to leave the forum. After the US Open this forum will become quiet and mostly populated by actual fans of tennis rather than fedbiatches :)

Well, but who's that reckless cretin persistently being beside the point in this thread? I see some obsessive features looming up; or do you always feel like having to come to Rafa's defence if only his name appears on screen...? Actually you yourself seem to be so full of despise that you simply cannot pick up on something else than...well, despising. One-track perception that is, combined with a "slight" penchant for paranoia. Nadal's outstanding record vs Federer taken into account one ought to think that you may present yourself much more self-assured -so where does the shoe pinch?

pony is dangerous when he is on his game, hopefully rafito can shake off more rust and really play to his potential. The key for rafa is his serves and his cross court backhand. If he can hit these 2 shots regularly deep, he has a good chance against the pony. Rafa's forehand looked quite decent yesterday against the german and hopefully he can build on that and really open his shoulders and go for those monster top spin forehands! VAMOS RAFITO!!

JMDP played a lot in the last 2 weeks. He must be pretty confident after winning Washington but also a bit tired, he played many 3 setters and I read he had medical time-outs in the Hanescu match. As for Rafa, he is well rested didn't stay too long on court but he's still rusty after the long break. So both of them have advantages and disadvantages and I can't tell which one will prevail.
Good luck, Rafa. I hope you win. Vamos. :rocker2:

And then we can point and laugh at all these retards..cause if Rafa just takes 2 months off before each slam..he is guaranteed to win..so lets say he plays until he is 33.. that gives him another 9 years.. 9 * 4 = 36 , but let's say he does lose some of them..not cause someone beats him, or he is tired, but he gets a splinter or sprains his ankle or something and only wins say 80% of those grandslams..that rounds up to 29 slams add his existing 6 slams and that gives him a nice round figure of 35 for the end of his career. Then there will be no argument about who is the GOAT..we will have to not only proclaim rafa the GOAT, but we have call him waterver farm animal we want them PIG, SHEEP..whatever man

What has my post got to do with 36, 29 slams? Because I talked about him taking 2 months off each year when he's aged in late20s early30s? Being fit in your 30s has no correlation with winning slams, just ask Agassi.

The reason why Nadal will win the US Open is because he is the best hardcourt player in the world. The only reason why he didn't win the US Open last year is because he was running on empty after the Olympics (an event which saw him defeat Djokovic in the semi-final and Gonzo in 3 straight sets for the gold medal on a hardcourt faster than New York). Had Nadal been slightly fresher at the US Open he would have kept the break he had in the 4th set v Murray and as usual finished his opponent off in the 5th set. After Nadal wins this year's US Open you will be silly (and illogical) to deny that he is the best hardcourt player in the world.

Had Nadal been slightly fresher at the US Open he would have kept the break he had in the 4th set v Murray and as usual finished his opponent off in the 5th set. After Nadal wins this year's US Open you will be silly (and illogical) to deny that he is the best hardcourt player in the world.

Why are you talking out of your bottom?

Delpo. Unless Nadal makes him run like a rabbit and the kid gets tired.

JMDP is already tired, and has a little injury in his back. I think Rafa will win by Del Potro's retirement after winning the first set...

Del Potty's gotta have some confidence based on his previous win over Rafa but he's not been in good form this week. It's hard to guage how well Rafa playing though because of Ferrer's retirement and Petzschner's inability to get the ball over the net for the entirety of their match.

I reckon Rafa in 2 still.

Obviously on the charge of the abomination of having stripped the GOAT of 6 GS? Or maybe you are referring to the heinous crime of having licked most of the rest out of 15 MS1000? You're obviously in the know, Selyoink, please tell us.

On the charge of fixing draws and matches. Who cares if he beats the choker Federer. He wouldn't make it that far in tournaments if his draws weren't always filled with mugs and Spanish fixers like Almugro. Anyone who thinks Nadull should still be on the tour should watch his fix with Almugro at RG in 08.

Nadull is one of the biggest hard court mugs out there. ATP always gives him opponents who idolize him on hardcourts. That is the only reason Nadull has ever had any good results on a hard court. Not to mention the ATP's slowing every surface to aid Nadull. You sir are a fool.

If Del Potro bends down for Nadull he should be kicked off the tour. Obviously Nadull should've been kicked off the tour a long time ago but ATP is in his pocket.

You're nuts
What you're talking about?

Rafa in 3

I think you are going to be one of those people who even when Nadal is both the defending Australian Open and defending US Open Champion, you are going to still be saying Nadal isn't as good as Federer or Murray on hardcourt. Well done on that.

He isn't as good as Murray or Fed on a hardcourt. Only an idiot could say otherwise.

Nadal has won a Grand Slam and an Olympic Gold medal on hardcourt. That's much much better than Murray's career achievements on that surface. :wavey:

He may have the achievements, but Murray is a better player on the surface.
