Default Re: Is Rafael Nadal Parera an underachiever?

No.

He seems to have made the most of his tennis talent and physical attributes.

He may not have the talent of Federer and possibly 1 or 2 other players, but he certainly is the 2 nd best player of this century behind Federer. In many ways the injuries are the reality of the way he plays and it probably was unfeasible to remain fit all the time with the demands he places on his body.

Certain posters seem to be trying to edit history to place Nadal ahead of Federer.
