Re: Which Grand Slam will crown a homegrown winner again?

i can understand why wimby is given the best chance due to murray.

but lest we forget that back in 2000-2003, we all thought that hewitt will be able to do it for Aus in AO.

so it's not sure yet....

So I named my son "Rafael" 3 years ago, and then...

... he keeps coming to me complaining that he's getting wedgies all the time.

Still glad I didn't name him Andy though....

Re: Will Nadal ever return to world number 1 again?

unless of course, after Rafa's 6-month preventive suspension, he'll serve a 2-year ban like puerta and korda :p

Re: Murray wins gold at olympics: Does that erase the wimbledon failures?

it's more of a redemption for 2012. but this may have added pressure for him for 2013 seeing that he's won OG.

Funny, not to take anything away from Murray, but he still hasn't won 7 straight in...

2. roddick - Wimbledon
3. haas - back in the top 10
4. murray - Wimbledon

Re: What are the 5 things you want your favorite player to achieve before retiring?

all good guys!

for rafa:
1. Miami
2. WTF
3. Paris
4. Cincy
5. Another hard court slam (either USO or AUS)

Rafa and Roger just have a few to tick off in their resume, but I doubt that they both...

Re: Who will complete the "Hexagon" first

best chance is djoko in RG, but not olympics. Rafa has a good chance if he paces himself throughout the season (fall season is his worst)

There is no GOAT... yet

In my opinion, the RG '11 final was Fed's most important match.

Screw the fact that Nadal had a winning record over him, or that he's in a slump according to this generation's standards, or that he...

Re: If you were Fed, and Nadal wins USO today, would you present the trophy to him?

Re: If Rafa wins today what excuses will say the haters?

yeah, they've been saying that for the past 4 or 5 years now... eventually it will happen.. but if it happens by the time he's 28, then he proves he's superhuman because most players (even not...

Re: Nadal is the new Borg

one major difference with borg - nadal's very hungry... i don't see him walking away from the game due to a loss like borg (from jmac in wimby and USO) and through burnout.

Rafa's career will end...

Re: Wimbledon Final Rafael Nadal beats Tomas Berdych 6-3, 7-5, 6-4

Re: Wimbledon Final Rafael Nadal beats Tomas Berdych 6-3, 7-5, 6-4

you can also add that... reaching 4 wimby finals and winning 2 of them, is no fluke! in rafa's case, it's actually 4 consecutive finals!
