Re: Wimbledon R1: Nadal d. Klizan 4-6 6-3 6-3 6-3

Here we go. It took two whole posts for this nonsense to start up.

Re: Wimbledon 2014 court speed thread.

8 pages of blah blah blah. I'm not going to bother reading it because I already know what it says.

If Rafa gets eliminated the first week, it's fast. If Rafa makes the second week, it's slow. ...

Re: Wimbledon R1: [2] R. Nadal def. M. Klizan 4-6 6-3 6-3 6-3

Exactly. First week is always dodgy as hell for Rafa. Rosol in the next round. So glad that is happening actually. Let's see if he can repeat that amazing match he played. I'm guessing no and we...

Re: Did anybody prefer the RG Final to Brown-Nadal?

I'm conflicted personally. Let's not talk about the RG final and this match specifically because it's just turning into a fanboy pissing match like pretty much every thread on this forum.

Let's...

Re: Halle R2: Dreddy Brown breadsticks Nadal 6-4 6-1

Re: Queens vs. Halle as Wimbledon warm up for Nadal

I remember reading an interview with him years ago on this. Something about the taxes he pays he can end up losing money for playing Queens. It's not about the size of the paycheck. It's more...

Re: Make no mistake, Rafa is favorite for Wimbledon

This. Rafa has low odds of getting to week two. But if he does, IMO he becomes the favorite.

Re: Nadal: "I lost today because my rival played better. I tried hard, I tried my bes

And yet he was out for 7 months after the match. Did he injure his knee during the presser?

How can anyone deny the fact that he was injured in 2012? Whether Rosol played well or not is irrelevant.

Re: If Nadal can win RG but lose 1R of W...

I don't think that's it honestly. His serve has been downright bad the last couple years. Very inconsistent and that's the kiss of death on grass. You have to protect your serve. He can get away...

Re: If Nadal can win RG but lose 1R of W...

I'd say it's a combination of things. Rafa needs a lot of match time on a surface to play well on it (even clay, though even his worst on clay is enough usually to win titles). Rafa very rarely...

Great question Johnny Grove. And I see your post has two pages worth of guys not answering the question but instead adding no value whatsoever. Shocking to see on MTF for sure. This place is...

Jesus. Why do I come to this place? Three pages of bitching and that's with half the site on my banned list. Good lord.

I watched the match. Rafa just looked uncomfortable out there. ...

Re: Halle R2: Dreddy Brown breadsticks Nadal 6-4 6-1

Rafa is such a clown sometimes. I know he wants to acclimate to the grass but playing 4 days after a gruelling grand slam final is just plain retarded. Someone call his camp and tell him it's not...

Re: Why does Rafa only win Djokovic on GS?

It absolutely explains it. He missed those shots because he was exhausted.

Rafa was playing from behind the whole match and he hit a wall at the end. Rafa was leading 4-2 (really the only time the...

Re: Why does Rafa only win Djokovic on GS?

Nole is the only guy on tour who I think can out stamina Rafa. See AO 2012 for details.

That's not why Rafa is beating him.

Re: If Nadal wins Wimbledon I will....

I want one more AO, W and FO. I'm greedy.

But imagine those insane statistics. 10 FO (unbreakable record). At least 3 slams on each surface (clay, grass, hard) - no one in history has done...

Re: Why does Rafa only win Djokovic on GS?

This. They are warmup tournaments now. Sampras did the same thing. He set his schedule around the slams and that's really all he was after later in his career. He didn't care about winning...

Re: Nadal "I want to play well on grass"

There's more to it. He feels he needs more time to acclimate to grass, as in skipping Halle could (most likely will) be detrimental to his chances at Wimbledon. It's a lot more than just wanting to...

Re: Rafael Nadal will win Wimbledon

If he makes it through week one, he has a shot. Depends on how well his body holds up and whether he is (or will be fatigued) from the FO.

His odds are largely draw dependent so let's see what...

Re: How would Nadal fare against Sampras on grass?

To answer the OP....

Assuming peak versions of both players, Sampras would win under any conditions. He was a better grass court player. It's not even close.

Now, if they played on today's grass,...

Re: How would Nadal fare against Sampras on grass?

He was #6 in 2010 for 2nd serve return points won. Out of the top 10 in pretty much every other stat. Agreed.

On clay, he has the best return numbers since these stats were captured (1991). And...

Re: Djokovic 4 years in row as bookie favorite for Wimbledon

Murray is a mess right now. Rafa has been useless on grass for two years. Federer needs a miracle draw.

Novak is the top choice even if it doesn't seem logical.

Re: Roland Garros Final: [1] Nadal defeats [2] Djokovic 3-6 7-5 6-2 6-4

Good point. If we want to get really exact about it, he was 6 points away. It was 4-2 and he was at 30-30 on his serve when he missed that backhand by an inch. If it had gone in, things could have...
