(He's lighter now than 2007/2008, and that's helped his quickness. Maybe when he was 16, before he put on muscles he was just as quick or quicker, but in 2011 he has the combination of extreme quickness AND better power than ever. How do you rate each year of Rafa athletically?)

Not really, there's just a tendency to have the most tards. It helps to keep them contained within a player forum as much as possible to spare the mental health of the rest of the board

If the threads of this sort are usual here I gotta rethink my decision of becoming a member.

2005. Never been quite as fast since the injury that ruled him out of the 2006 A.O.

Not even remotely. His overall movement isn't anywhere CLOSE to where it was when he was young. He's also lost muscle mass so to say he's stronger, is incorrect.

no, 2004-2008 (when not injured for a while) he was definitely moving faster. Less weight probably helps against his knee injuries though,
