I mean, Rafa has had injury problems in his young career, some of them bordering on the potentially serious, so I do think he has to be careful, but I also don't see a reason to believe he won't be around and relatively healthy for another 10 years or so if he's smart and plans his schedule well and takes good care of himself and stuff.

Have you seen live in front of your eyes Rafa and JCF? They are physically so completely different that you simply cannot compare them. Your comparison is just as stupid as it would be to compare Hewitt physically with Philippoussis...... The only thing Rafa and JCF have in common is the Spanish passport.

I think there's a reasonable point here. No doubt Nadal will probably win Roland Garros this year and be a contender at AO and USO for the next few years. But, with his style, he'll probably burn-out at a relatively young age.

This isn't anything new. It's happened to many young stars in the past. Borg and Wilander are the obvious examples. Rafa will no doubt win many slams over the next 3-4 years but it's unlikely that he'll be able to keep up this intensity into his late 20s.

ClaycourtaZzZz.
04-23-2006, 09:19 PM
Ridiculous.

Rafa CAN and WILL win all 4 slams, and he will win at least 10 slams. If he improves his all-court game, he's gonna break Sampras' record, soon Fed's. As soon as he gets suited to faster surfaces, he'll be in the zone.:cool:

This thread is premature, but not completely out of line. Burn-out is a worry for almost all players who have such intensive schedules at a young age and who play such physical tennis. As far as we know, Nadal could still end up like a Chang or Hewitt in a few years, although he is better than they are and also more offensive. Only time will tell if his body can hold up.

Even if Rafa burns out aged 25, he still will have prevented Roger from winning all 4 grand slams.By the time Rafa burns out Roger will probably have retired without a RG title. That would live a bitter taste in my mouth as Roger would have achieved no more than what Sampras did. People (like Haas) would still question his greatness. Personally I see no reason why Rafa should not dominate until around 27/28. Just because Hewitt is burning out doesn't mean Rafa will automatically go the same route.

he has a decent shot at hardcourts, AO maybe

Depending on how he plays in Rome, he will probably withdraw from Hamburg.

A big part of Nadal's game is his ability to run down all shots . Guess who used to do the same thing mostly on hard courts and even grass ? A similar-aged Hewitt back in his years of domination 2001-02 and where is he now?

Languishing out of top 10 . I think Federer knows this and is just waiting for his chance and bidding his time to claim Nadal like he did to Hewitt

Nadal is still at the early stages of his career, so it is impossible to predict at this point when he will lose "a step and a half" as somebody fameously said. Given that he is 5 years younger than Roger, it is likely that he will lose a step after Roger does.

Yet, the Fed trolls have turned against themselves.
"You're a Nadal bandwagon jumper ---you didn't like him before the year 2003!!!!
Your uncle is your daddy! I hope you're bitter.
No one else's worth watching for the next 10 years!" Bad rep the Fed haters now, you hear!

Nadal doesn't win by just chasing balls. That's one of his biggest weapon, but that doesn't mean that's his only weapon.

In fact, everyone chases balls. He is just faster so he can get to more balls than a lot of other players, but that doesn't mean the other players are not making the effort to chase the ball. Also, when he gets to the ball, he actually does something with it. He is not just being a yoyo at the back of the court, which means he is not always doing insane running.

I can also argue that since he moves so fast, it takes him less effort to get to most balls than other players do.

Exactly, he's faster and stronger than a lot of the players on the tour. It may appear he's doing a lot of work, but for him it takes less effort than it would for most other players to get from one side of the court to the other.

While I do understand why some may think that Rafa's body may not last that long, you should also look at genetics.

His uncle was quite a brawny and tough defensive player- who had a long career- was it four WC teams? During his last WC he was one of the oldest players, if not the oldest player for Spain. I think that bodes well for Rafa. I'm not saying that his body won't break down, but I am saying that it is not a pure given like some others may think. And his body type is very different than Hewitt. One thing that I have really noticed in that regard is that since he is a bit taller than Lleyton, he takes long strides in running as oppossed to the more scurrying type steps that the shorter Hewitt must take.

nkhera1
04-25-2006, 01:48 AM
The guy is 19 so he will probably keep adjusting and learning to be better in order to compensate for that one step he eventually will lose. How much did Fed improve between the age of 19 and 23? I would say quite a bit though I'm not saying Nadal will improve that much. Nadal is pretty well conditioned and if football players who are bigger can run just as fast there is no reason Nadal can't as long as he takes care of himself like he has been. Funnier thing is what happens when Fed loses that one step. Sure speed isn't his main game but he does rely a lot on movement and I would say in some cases it could be the difference between a tight win or a tight loss.

Nadal being taller than Hewitt doesn't make any difference at all, considering that his game style is totally diferent to that of Hewitt. Nadal plays way far off the baseline, classic clay-court tennis, and Hewitt usually plays right on the baseline, so Nadal is likely to outmileage Hewitt in any of his matches. Clay is a soft surface and he can slide...his feet and ankles don't suffer that much .The problem comes on hard courts where the abrupt changes of pace he has to make playing that far off the baseline will eventually take its toll on his body.

He had a similar strike of success earlier and then he broke. That is why it is not completely irrational to say it could happen again since he's older, carries more wear and tear, and allegedly has chronic tendonitis.

No, a temporary injury is not the same thing. After he "broke" last year, he's come back to win three consecutive slams. Hewitt, Ferrero, and any number of others never peaked again after they fell off. Sure Nadal has had his share of injuries, but he's still the player that he always was--you know, the one who is "a" threat or "the" favorite for each and every tournament he enters.

Rafa CAN and WILL win all 4 slams, and he will win at least 10 slams. If he improves his all-court game, he's gonna break Sampras' record, soon Fed's. As soon as he gets suited to faster surfaces, he'll be in the zone.:cool:
bahahaaha and so will santoro freaking biggest noob ive ever seen

4 slams - check. 10 slams - pretty close.

Seriously, this guy's body will take a told from running up and down and chasing balls, i think he will burn out faster then my guy Hewitt.I think u just cant play like that every time.I think he will be slower next year.

Still, Federer will retire soon, basically after London. Not Nadal, he's only just begun his prime :yeah:

What I said must be irrational then.

It's not irrational. Any player can be felled by a crippling injury. No one is immune.

It's just that this thread was started in 2006. FOUR years ago. Nadal not only is doing well, he's gotten better.

Obviously, no player lasts forever. Each one peaks and falls away. That arc takes different shapes for different players, but, of course, Nadal will someday cease to be as fast and as mentally strong. When that day comes, I'm sure there will be people claiming "See? I told you so."

The problem is that they started predicting his demise 2 years into his career.

Only time will tell.

He may have another 1-2 or even 3 years of peak tennis before he starts to decline or maybe even less. Or maybe he schedules even better and takes care of his body, pulls and Agassi and is winning slams into his 30's.

EPIC FAIL. Nadal is still going strong and he is improving all the time. Uncle Toni is doing an amazing job. I foresee him playing at this level well into his 30's after which is body will completely disintegrate :eek: However by then he will have set records which will not be broken this side of the century.

Nadal wont win another slam minus the french, anyone wanna bet some cash on it, thats how confident i am.

MTF hasn't changed that much...

No way dude..it will be hard enough winning the French with Coria and Gaudio around and dare I say Fed. 2 more French Opens and one AO.....No chance at Wimbledon and USO will be dominated by Fed, Hewitt, Safin and Roddick Baubaby has spoken....

Hewitt is probably as good if not a better player than Nadull who happened to be born at the wrong time. Nadull has a better forehand, but they have a similar backhand and serve, while Hewitt has better volleys, better fighting spirit, better court craft, and probably the same amount of fitness.

Biggest problem for Hewitt is he had genuinely debilitating injuries which kept him out of the game and made him a shadow of his former self, too bad those injuries get next to no coverage while the "knee injury" of Nadull is supposed to be so bad he skipped one GS and is now back to his very highest level :rolleyes:

If Nadull has injuries like his knees his whole career, I expect him to be here for another 10 years :o

Take this trash off my screen (i mean the creative). I have come to believe that Rafa and uncle Tony use advanced mind control techniques. the measured responses, the subtle things he does, the I can never do this talk, the I am not the best in khistory, the he is the favorite line, being late to the match, waiting for opponent to pass first, jumping up and down before the coin toss, calling the doctor after opponent gets momentum, the grunting he does (which rivals that of Sharapova). For someone who is close to a king (bloodline), I am very suspicious of Rafa and his success.

Tennis has never been killed by a man with a rackett in his hands. The sport has been going on for close to 130 years, it has known all sorts of players, styles and publics. The fact you happen to dislike the top dog in a given moment does not mean tennis is dead. Maybe it only means you have been following the sport for a too short period of time.

It's not that he's keeping titles away from Murray, that's partly Murray's fault for losing to such a clown or losing to other clowns (Wawrinka, Cilic).

I want Nadal gone because he's awful to watch, he's a cheat, he takes way too much time between points and he's the death of tennis.

he's a cheat

You always say that, but never give a convincing argument. Something is not so simply because you repeat it time and again.

Cheating isn't subjective, you should be able to prove it. Soderling pointing to a mark 2 yards away from where the ball landed is a clear cut example of cheating. Rafa being slow between serves is not, because there are other explanations that are perfectly credible, like his obsessive routines that are meant for himself rather than for making his rival edgy.
