Nadal has a job at hand with Federer's return to form.
...and this time, he's not choking.

Rafa might win 1.

Rafa is the big favourite in AO. I hope/think that he would meet Roger in the final. But to be honest I want that he meets murray in the final
On contrary to what most of MTFs think AO surface is not that higher bouncing. It stays pretty low on slices and flat shots. High bouncing HC are only IW and Miami.

No. Miami has a medium bounce and there are other tournaments that use high bouncing surfaces. I am sure that there is/are still surface(s) that use Rebound Ace. IIRC, Australian does take slice well and it also has a medium bounce.

I think he could win the AO and the FO. Just a hunch, nothing else.

I disagree with you because you were posting crap (and because your predictions always fail anyway). Murray will not win 2 Slams next year, just no. And an in-form Federer isn't guaranteed to win Wimbledon, either, as long as Rafa is playing, too.

If his Serve is Great he can challenge all 4.
Serve is good 2/4 is my guess.
Even if that's true, it doesn't matter. Why? Because the rest of the players have been declining even worse. And there are no serious young players on the rise.

I agree his backhand is worse than in 2008, but forehand and serve are both vastly superior.

Murrays game is improving, its more difficult now to attack his second serve than its once was.
The forehand has also improved. In his match against nadull he hit more forehand winners than nadull.
Disagree about the serve it just has more mph on it but realistically his 1 serve percentage will drop.
This will be helpful against most players bar federer.
Fed couldn't return serve to save his life @ Wimbledon 08.Nadull's 1st serve was slower than now but he got more 1st serves in.
Now fed will get "more" looks at his second serve to exploit.

Default Re: How many slams will Rafa win in 2011?

murray hit an astounding number of winners considering it was a 3 set match. he blasted a total of 53 winners.

you cant beat nadal by hitting 100 winners. verdasco hit around that many against him at Oz in 2009 and still lost the match.

you have to win the critical points.

why dont you call it like it is louie: clay warrior too showed up with some improvements at the u.s. open.

and there may be a lot more in store. he is just 24.

and most certainly murray is improving. i am very happy for him. he needs to take it to the next level.

they are all improving to some extent with some notable exceptions actually. even fed continues to improve.

his movement is more crisp now than it was earlier in the year. and his serve is as potent as it has ever been.
