Re: Rio de Janeiro SF: Fognini def. Nadal 1-6 6-2 7-5

Even real Rafa fans can see that the decline is huge. Tough for me to imagine him winning slams again. He is just an average player now...

Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

The only thing that maybe defends Rafa after his loss in Rio are the conditions. We all know that Rafa struggles in humid conditions lately. He started to struggle in the final of RG, he struggled in...

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...

Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

Watching Rafa nowadays is really painful. He has declined so much that no words can describe it. I really think it will be tough for him to comeback to his best again.

Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

Maybe for some of you Rio and BA will be irrelevant, but for me these 2 tournaments will be very important. We need Rafa to comeback to winning habits. He needs to lift the trophy again. He needs to...

Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

Talking about the slams. Ofcourse I would love him to win 10th RG, but I think I would prefer him to win every other GS rather than RG. What I mean is that people will always say that his number of...

Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

This is actually quite a good example. I remember once Roddick was playing out of his mind at AO just to get schooled in SF by Federer. Hopefully this will be a similar story.

Rafa will play in a...

Re: 2015 Tournaments Thread

Ofcourse I'm happy with today win. I think Rafa played some good tennis, but also some defensive tennis in the first set.
Anyway, I have never been so afraid of Berdych in my life. I've seen some...

Re: Australian Open 4R: (3) Nadal def (14) Anderson 7-5 6-1 6-4

No need to. He is my inspiration as well and I'm perfectly happy in my life. Guess for some their inspiration is hate and Federer's arrogance ;)

Please survive it. It looks Rafa is a little bit better, but maybe it's a wishful thinking.
