Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: Setting new records - That's the way Rafa does comeback! :sp
Well if he was injured last year then the 2 years thing is hardly some great shock - I've no doubt he is practising hard and making adjustments, I doubt he's forgotten how. If he can get through the first couple of rounds without incident then I don't think making him favourite is ludicrous at all.
Compare to Djokovic, who hasn't been having a great time since January and who is weakest on grass, Federer who, Halle notwithstanding is also not crash hot right now, and Murray who is in good form but still has question marks about if he can actually do it at Wimbledon....I think Nadal compares favourably indeed under the circumstances.
