As we all know, nadal was had an amazing year racking up 11 titles, including 4 shields and 1 slam.
in his follow up year, how many titles do you think he will defend? 0? surely not. 6/7?likely. or will he defend them all and add more titles?

I don't think he will play the small ones next year and so, he will not defend those. I fully expect him to play a schedule like Roge is, which include only 1 or 2 small ones which are somehow sentimentally favorites
I think he has good chance to defend roland garos, but I hope Roge can win Roland Garros next year

I believe that next year he will have a very different schedule so that many tournaments he won this year he may not play in them next year. He will probably defend some and win tournaments next year that he did not enter or lost in this year. He has a very good chance of winning the Australian Open and Miami which he did not this year, but will not play a lot of the clay court tournaments he played this year. Both courts are slow enough for him to win on the surface. He will not win Wimbledon or the US open - courts too fast for him.

5-8... he'll probably not even play many of the small ones.

He'll defend about 3 or 4 of his titles but he'll win a total of about 7 or 8 titles next year. He'll probably retain most of the big clay tournaments Monte-Carlo, Barcelona, Rome and Roland Garros. He'll also win maybe Miami and a couple of other hard/indoor titles. I think he could win the Australian Open too.

Remember, he's not defending his Latin American titles.

He certainly won't defend 11, as he won't go to South America next year where he won 2 tournaments in 2005...

Gotta wait until HIS schedule comes out for 2006.

he will defend about 5-8. He won't play some of the small tournaments he played this year. His game will be better than it was this year, which is a scary thought. I think he will play less to avoid injuries.

Agreed. Infact, they'll probably even make him give back a couple of the titles that he won this year, due to the fact that he's offensive. So this will actually put him in the negatives. Sad face.

the RG , the masters ...

stebs
11-16-2005, 02:39 PM
it will be in the 5-8 region but i think either 5 or 6. he will probably defend two tms and possibly a couple of small tournies. I dont think he will retain RG as i think Fed has this as his main prize for next year to complete his set of grand slams.

TheMightyFed
11-16-2005, 02:54 PM
How many I don't know, but there is one he won't defend because I know another guy who will be out of his mind to sweep it, this is Roland Garros...

At least 4 if he is not injured. :bounce:

a couple. for some reason i don't think he'll defend his RG title, which is the most important.

If Nadal doesn't defend FO then who will win it??
Fed??

He won't play in Sauípe and Acapulco. Then there are the 2 TMS on clay and Roland Garros, which he will more likely defend. Add Barcelona, Bastad and Stuttgart. As for Canada, and Madrid, it's unlikely, supposing that the big guys will be playing these tournaments next year, and it won't be the joke it was this year. Beijing? Probably. The total accounts for 7. Of course, he'll probably win a couple more.

P.S.: He probably won't play less tournaments next year than he played in 2005. He already commited to Chennai and Sydney as a warm-up to the Australian Open, and this is just the beginning of his schedule.

Alot, he going to defend alot.

All those ones at the begining of the season in South America...good bye...they are his. Lets also not forgot about most of the clay season he's going to grab those.

I reckon 5-8, but he'll probably win a few new titles as well.

Sanneriet

I picked two to four because I think the other players are going to adjust to his game and he won't play the same number of tournaments. I think he will defend the a couple, but I actually think someone else will win RG.

Gael Monfils will :tape:

I bet Nadal can defend 2-4.

Cervantes

I'd say 4-5.

Probably 2 out of Roland Garros, Monte Carlo and Rome. And then something like Barcelona, Stuttgart and maybe another.

Nadal will become #1 the next year. This guys is here to stay. Another kid to watch is Berdych.

He will win 5 or 6 titles which are mainly
clay tournaments.
I think he can keep winning the cray match.

he is still young & aspiring despite a massive year of accomplishments which which have been noted better but got sided by Federer's achievements.
time yet to know his schedule for 2006, but there is no reason to suspect he would not defend his titles.
he may not win all 11 but he has the mark of a winner. even ur Fed didnt repeat his year. its clear thou that the competition is low

It depends on his knees and whether or not he risks playing less on clay.

GonzoFan
11-29-2005, 04:36 AM
I think he definitely won't be able to defend the 11 titles as he is not going to play the same tournaments that he played this year and he already said that ... so I think he will defend like 4 or 5 titles maybe ...

Time for a little update.
According to my own count he defended four titles so far:

- Barcelona
- Monte Carlo
- Rome
- Roland Garros

Next ones would be Bastad and Stuttgart.

Merton

Well, he defended the one title that mattered.

DrJules
10-22-2006, 04:09 PM
The answer was 4.

Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Rome and French Open.
