Re: Will Nadal win RG again?

Not with this level of play. He isn't even the 2nd best clay court player right now. But who is to say he can't improve some - maybe enough, whatever that may mean.

Re: Roland Garros QF: Djokovic def. Nadal 7-5 6-3 6-1

No surprises, in a period when Djokovic is playing some of his best tennis and Nadal some of his worst, any other result would have been a shock.

It's Nole's to lose, I guess. Nadal, on the other...

Re: WWW? French Open QF: [1] Djokovic vs [6] Nadal - # XLIV

There was that article on ATP about Rafa's career Roland Garros stats. Took the time to compare them with this year's.

When you consider he has only met lower ranked players, you have to take any...

Re: WWW? French Open QF: [1] Djokovic vs [6] Nadal - # XLIV

I can't imagine Nadal winning, he would need to come up with something quite superior to even his best match(es) of the year.

Re: Roland Garros 2015

Is their relationship still tense? I had hoped they would have gotten beyond it by now. Stuff I'd read was that their "break-up" was more contextual than personal, but there is an interview from a...

Hopefully Mergea will join Tecau next year and prepare to take the Olympics by storm. :D

Re: Roland Garros 2015: Mixed Doubles Draw

Krajicek/Mergea lost 6-4, 6-7 (6), [6-10] after leading 6-4 in the tie-break of the second set. Not quite Mergea's day.

Re: Roland Garros 2015

And once more, Rojer/Tecau def Bopanna/Mergea 6-3, 6-7 (7), 6-3. Didn't see the match, but it looked like Bop/Mer were actually on a better path in the third, just got broken and couldn't recover....

Re: Roland Garros 2015

It does read harsher than it was meant to, you're right. And those double faults were, if I remember correctly, at non-crucial moments. Bopanna was the one to actually lose his serve, twice.

Re: Roland Garros 2015

Wasn't the best of showings - Mergea was gifting at least one double fault per service game, although Bopanna was under equally as much pressure during...

Re: Roland Garros R2: [6]R.Nadal def. N.Almagro 6-4 6-3 6-1

Pretty good by Nadal, movement in particular. Got less tidy on his serve in the second set, but overall good to see.

He should almost be top 100, right? Around 105, as of the current rankings.

Whatever happens, I hope it works out for the year.

And, who knows, we might have another double's team with Ungur/Copil, they've done really well this tournament. :cool:

Mergea is an excellent player, but there was talk of him being a more difficult figure. I'm sure he feels the pressure to succeed now, but I doubt that burning through partners is the way to go. Just...

Good to see Nadal is finally shifting focus to the technical side of his game. Wins and confidence both come from a solid game, not the other way around, as much as Nadal has claimed this to be the...

I know money shouldn't be the problem, he comes from a rich family.
