Re: Toni Nadal picks Fed's FH in "if you could have any shot" question

Uncle Toni is so predictable :rolleyes: I would have picked Rafa's roll-it-in-baby first serve, Fed's topspin-killing backhand, Novak's ultra-precise overhead and Andy's doubly-lethal second serve...

Re: - Official Wimbledon 2015 Draw Discussion *** Pre, Live, Post Show ***

The real question is how many sets Grassray would lose on his way to the title - my guess is 3 (2 to Fed in the SF and 1 to Novak in the F).

My vote in the poll goes to Rafa, though he is...

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

It's great to see Rafa biting a trophy again :)

This might be a measly 250, and the field might not have been impressive, but a win is a win, especially if it comes on his weakest surface these...

Re: I see Nadal winning Wimbledon or the U.S Open.

Very succinctly put. This post covers everything one can objectively say about Rafa's prospects at this stage of his career.

Re: WWW: Queens ATP 500

I hope Rafa does well and gets to the QF or SF here. I am happy to see him in the final at Stuttgart. Every win of his on grass is a bonus at this point and should help his Wimbledon preparation....

Re: As a Djokovic fan, this loss against Wawrinka hurts the most, EVER

Yup, I know how it exactly feels :bigcry: I too didn't mind Rafa's AO 12 loss too much, but the AO 14 final was a huge punch in the gut - not because I expected Stan to rollover (just to be clear, I...

Re: Roland Garros Final: [8] Stanimal Wawrinka def. [1] Nole Djokovic 4-6, 6-4, 6-3,

First, congrats to the Stanimal :bowdown:

Re: WWW RG QF Nishikori vs Tsonga

Tsonga played ok against Berdy (who looked stiff) and Kei was not bad too. I think Kei will take this in 4. The lower half definitely looks light weight compared to the upper half, I just don't see...

Nothing new here. Wilander is an utter joke and is as bad as a commentator can possibly get.

Re: RG organizers throwing its 9 time champ on Lenglen for 2nd round in a row

I don't think they are deliberately trying to insult Rafa by putting him on SL again, I am sure they would have put Andy-Chardy match on PC if Novak was playing a non-French player. If the organizers...

Re: WWW Roland Garros R4: [6] Nadal vs Sock

Yaa, I did read about a change of frame in some of the tournaments. Anything that helps him feel more confident is welcome. Rafa badly needs to win this tournament. If he doesn't, there is a good...

Re: WWW Roland Garros R4: [6] Nadal vs Sock

No point in trying to predict this one. Sock has a great FH and serve, but this match squarely depends on Rafa's mind. If the confident version shows up, he should comfortably take this in 3. If the...

Re: RG R3:[6]R.Nadal def. A.Kuznetsov 6-1 6-3 6-2

Rafa looked ok and got the job done in about two hours, so that is a positive.

As his fan, I would like to be optimistic about his 10th title here. It's Rafa and this is RG, so no one can stop him...

Re: Madrid SF: [3] Nadal def. [6] Berdych 7-6(3) 6-1

I agree. I don't think anyone is expecting Rafa to play at an unreal level and obliterate the competition in every tournament on clay like he did in 2008 or 2010. He is well past his prime at this...

Re: WWW Madrid SF: [3] Nadal - [6] Berdych

If they both play at their average level this year, Birdy will comfortably edge this out in two. Their old h2h stats don't matter, Rafa will need to up his level to have any chance here.

If Birdy...

Unreal W/UFE ratio from Birdy there :bowdown: Was he really that good in this match :eek:

John's numbers don't look bad either.

Re: WWW: Madrid QF: [3] R. Nadal vs. [10] G. Dimitrov

Let us see how Rafa does. He still does not look too happy out there on the court, and his shots are missing the usual rip/power/fluidity. Grigor will punish him if he is not up to the mark.

Re: Who plays the most boring tennis in the top 5 from an aesthetic point of view?

Currently, I would say Novak. My order would be Novak < Andy < Kei < Fed = Rafa. Fed has (or used to have) swiftness + tremendously powerful FH, Rafa has the raw power + whippy FH with a beautiful...

Re: Murray to win the 2015 French Open

Indeed. It is time for Channelray to channel his inner Clayray and Grassray and complete the Channel slam. His confidence should be off the charts after his recent epochal triumph :bowdown:
