Re: How many points do you expect Nadal to capture during the clay season?

nearly everything correct :D*

if you did it by head, it's very impressive :eek:

personally I have it on my computer :lol:

4590 in 2012 (Verdasco only defeated him in R16 in Madrid),

4510 in 2008...

Re: Young guns v Generation useless?

it was also Hewitt's and Roddick's case, only Nadal was quicker than them actually



I just think they don't fully accept how the game has become, and how miraculous it has been that Fed has had...

Re: Fifth set tiebreak in Davis Cup from 2016 onwards

he's made those proposals again : every one or two years 4 groups of 4 teams in 4 places of the world during one week, then a "final four" in another week, it would be less weeks to play then for...

Re: Nadal's streak consecutive weeks in ATP Top 5 is under threat

there's no wonder : 4300 points on clay out of 5255 ... he's had a less good clay season than usually but still it's been good enough to stay in the top-5, he's always been able to stay in the top-5...

Raonic defeats Nishikori in QF that's the other scenario other than Ferrer winning Miami

Re: Young guns v Generation useless?

I personally think Dimitrov has less potential than Raonic and Nishikori, and I don't think his main problem is his head.

He's my favourite player among all those, but I don't understand what he...

Re: Nadal's streak consecutive weeks in ATP Top 5 is under threat

Re: Young guns v Generation useless?

I agree with a big part of what you say but I disagree that it's harder to enter the top-100 or win a 96-player Masters 1000 first round now than 5 years ago.

And that's all those players hava done...

Re: Nadal's streak consecutive weeks in ATP Top 5 is under threat

I'd rather say 4-9 as I think Murray has quite a margin, but yes among those ranks absolutely everything can change now between the end of Miami and the clay season

Nadal's specific problem is...

Re: Nadal : I'm always anxious

well I'm surprised that you're the one denying what I said, as I thought I had said pretty much the same as what you said :shrug:



I never said he's acting, just that he's anxious about his own...

Re: Nadal's streak consecutive weeks in ATP Top 5 is under threat

he has very few points to "defend" in Monte-Carlo and Barcelona comparing to his usual habits.

He will drop many points after that in 3 tournaments : Madrid-Roma-French open, that's why the problem...

Re: Nadal : I'm always anxious

I'm quite certain he's stopped thinking that many years ago and he knows his abilities are much better than nearly everyone else's

Re: Nadal's streak consecutive weeks in ATP Top 5 is under threat

nothing is sure, in the provisional rankings after Madrid, Nadal is only 150 points behind Nishikori and 825 points behind Raonic

and Nishikori will play one less tournament than Nadal, as he will...

Re: Young guns v Generation useless?

I'm quite sure they're better indeed, the whole top-100 can't be much worse than 5 years ago, and it's what we're talking about here, not of the top-players.



The 1990 generation is OK,

but the...

Re: Nadal : I'm always anxious

in the beginning of the French open 2010, his interviews were in a similar tone.
Or maybe was it 2011, not sure ...

but anyway he won the French open and played great in the next months

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

On topic : imo :

- either Nadal or Murray or even possibly Federer this year, will take the number 1 from Djokovic in the next 2 years
- or I think it will be a guy from 1996-1997, I'd say Coric,...

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

it's true though, as it's true for Nadal and for many many players of the past : physically tennis players are at their peak around 25 then their explosiveness declines.

But of course they still...

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

Fed's physical decline started in 2007 actually and obviously, as Nadal's started in 2009 actually and obviously (he was never as good physically as in 2008-2009 after that : in 2010 his backhand was...

the third one is not true anymore at the moment I read the results of this poll : it's equal (and despite my vote Fed left brained)

but there are many left-wing people who prefer Federer and many...

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

2011 and AO 2012 were surprising yes in the stamina department yes, but he was not that bad before in that department (remember Madrid 2009) and that good afterwards either.
