Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

In a way I think Rafa played even worse than against Rosol, Darcis or Kyrgios.
He is totally ruining the legend status he built for many ears by losing 4th stright time to a player outside TOP 100 in...

Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

R1 - Bellucci - absolutely no problem for Rafa
R2 - Lu/Brown - I think I prefer Lu coz he is smaller and his serve isn't that powerful, but both will be very tough - first challenge
R3 - Troicki - he...

Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

You're right, but you do realise Rafa will have to play someone from 5-8 in 4th round? It may be Nishikori, Berdych, Raonic or Ferrer. Only the last doesnt't seem a problem at the moment. And there...

Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

This is pathetic. Not the fact that he lost, but the way he lost again. The same story as Fognini, Raonic or Verdasco. These are the matches he should have never lost considering the position he was...

Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

Hi,

The fact that he doesn't have any points to defend doesn't change anything :) It's about hte Race ranking which counts only 2015.
Rafa is 8th at the moment, but his advantage ahead of 9th Raoinc...

Re: Stuttgart F: [1]R.Nadal def. [8]V.Troicki 7-6(3) 6-3

I'm the last one to believe Rafa is back for good, but these days even this win makes me very happy.
Rafa played solid tournament with really good serve.
It's nice to see him so happy and hopefully...

We can't lose hope, but to be honest none of us is really believing that Rafa can win tomorrow.
If he does, this will be the biggest win of his career in my opinion. Beating this Djokovic after such...

Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

I think Rafa is playing solid tennis right now, but I don't think it is enough for Nole. We will see.
I will be extra happy if Rafa somehow manages to beat Djokovic...
First he needs to beat Sock who...

For the first time yesterday I lost my belief Rafa can win RG 2015. To me he is really done. His mental part is gone for good. His tennis is much worse, although sometimes he can still show good...

Great performance yesterday from Rafa. It was a pleasure to watch him playing like this. So many clean and strong shots. I was really amazed.
With this form he should be able to get another title in...

Re: Barcelona 2R: Rafael Nadal def. Nicolas Almagro 6-3 6-1

Oh boy, you're so delusional. I might agree with RG 12 that Rafa was a bit lucky with the match being suspended, but the other two explainations are ridicolous.

I couldn't watch the match today, but...

Another typical loss for Rafa. This time to a really bad player like Verdasco. What else is waiting for us?
I realise the fact that it's more Rafa's head to blame rather than his tennis, but somehow...

I haven't seen the match, but boy that was something. I'm happy Leo finally won. I felt very sorry for him after his heartbreaking loss in Shanghai last year against Federer. He is a very nice guy.

Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

I agree with every single word you wrote. He won RG 2014, but to be honest he didn't even play that good there. US Open 2013 was his last good tournament :(
You can also see the decline of Rafa only...
