not a particularly good match. the most memorable thing is djoko clobbering nadal until he begged for the match to be suspended.

if you ever played tennis on a clay court you'd be aware of how big a difference moisture makes to conditions, ball bounce, movement, etc. Djokovic lucked out that it was raining for the entire third set, it was dumb of the officials to not suspend play earlier. remind me again, why Nadal was beating Djokovic so badly the first two sets when conditions were absoultely normal and how the weather is meant to be when playing on clay?
it's a poor excuse to say your man had momentum when he happened to suddenly play very well in wet conditions that make the ball bounce low and the courts play uncharastically as far as clay is concerned

Just that though he's a lot better than before he still doesn't know how the knee will do in matches and how long it will take him to get to top conditions.

Toni said he's playing at a good level - not his best but it is okay - he won some practice sets off Robredo in Barcelona last week. He doesn't know if he'll get to the right level by Acapulco, IW, MIami or even Monte Carlo - case of wait and see.

On another note - he's apparently signed up to play doubles with Nalbandian in Sao Paolo!!

Video of today's practice:

Asho Nadal played through pain last year BECAUSE of the knee fat pad issue. the whole point of his hugely long delayed coming back to tour was to work as a solution for his knee to heal and STOP hurting rather than can get surgery to remove the fat pad (surgery is quite unpredictable obviously)
can't say like for sure if the dude's going to feel pain still or not, but him and his team made it very clear that doctors indicated for the knee to stop being painful he needed to stop using it extremely for a while. it seems illogical that his knee would still be in pain after so long

however, I wouldn't be totally shocked if BAM in a few months the same problem arrises again
I totally agree it's a a wait and see sorta thing! like wait and see if those cupcakes are getting solid in the oven
that is crazy he's doing doubles with Nalbandian too! I think if anything that shows that he's confident the bodys back to norm and that he just needs to regain traction as far as remembering how to play on tour, the confidence, ETC

That is how Soderling beat Federer at FO in wet condition in 2010 QF. It was even worse than Novak and Nadal.I did not get why the match was not suspended so guys can play next day. The same happened to Murray and Berdych. It was good they suspended the final and played on next day
last year.

Wow I'm conflicted between "he's too injured to play" and "he'll injure himself by playing too much" feelings.

Did he f up last year too by playing useless doubles?

Rafa also playing useless doubles with Nalby in Sao Paulo?

Here we go again. Rafa will be playing too much tennis at a stretch and as a result, there is a possibility that he will make himself injured again. And after that, the same old 'Tight-schedule' bulls#it issue will reappear.

Fcuking hell! When will this guy realize he has to make a good schedule which won't make him injured so often! He has the tendency of getting injured often because of his playing style and bad scheduling.

Seems like Rafa and Injury are for each other.

Funny how you Djoker tards think a puff of wind at the USO is a more legitimate reason than an hour of rain and therefore a watersoaked court. They stopped play way too late and this was the ONLY reason Novak wasn't straight setted that day.

On normal conditions, Rafa is a couple of classes above him on clay

That video does not sound that promising. After all this time, his knee still hurts him. He "has" to play.

Yes, because the overall better player is always the better player on the day right?

How many RG titles does Novak have?
How many clay titles does Novak have?
What is their clay H2H?

Rafa is a couple classes above everyone on clay, no need to get your tardpanties in a bunch. Nadal was much better than Nole in the RG final (6-3 6-4 2-0), until the rain started, and what do you know, as soon as the rain stopped he was better as well. What does that tell you, along with their overall clay stats?
