nadal won the most joke us open in tennis history and his best year was because that 2010 was really patetic in terms of competition , the best players in very low levels or injury , he faced the powerfuls youznhy , verdasco , ferrer , berdych , melzer and more mugs.
he can`t won outside clay since 2010 , the worst year in tennis of the last years.
he is the only man of lost many slam finals with the same guy of all history , a titan really......
even in clay he never faced great competition even gaudio and coria were out and fed-nole are fast court specialist , not clay.
Pretty much. Nadal took advantage of the 2008-2010 era to win his slams off clay. Federer was past his peak and before Djokovic hit his peak. Don't expect him to win any slams off clay anymore. Peak Djokovic stopped him since 2011 and now he will have to deal with peak Murray as well at AO/Wimbledon/USO. Back to being a clay court specialist for Nadal.
