I understand saying Djokovic is now a big threat on clay but to say something like Nadal played as well in Monte Carlo as he did today? that is purely delusional. Nadal is playing much better now and that's not surprising, he typically, whether it be tournament or season, takes a bit to get going
Europe clay is a lot different than SA after all
Oh God,you actually watch tennis or what?Ofc Rafa had many UE against Nole,but that's mainly becouse of NOVAK,not Rafa,geez and same thing goes for djoker too.Rafa takes high risks when playing him,hitting very deep.You can't even compare Novak's game and Raonic's.
