I'll be surprised if Nadal does much this season at all including on clay. Hes going to need probably the rest of the year to get healthy and more time to get back to the highest level he can attain

Himself. If Rafa is healthy he is almost unbeateable on clay.

This is all under the spectrum if Nadal does indeed get back to top form by clay season.. The chances of that happening are pretty slim consdering his injury . Nadal has to be in top form or else he is going to go out to the flavor of the month flash in the pan such as SoderCrap last year

the discussion is basically centered around the french open........but consider other clay events as well........i voted for 'no one.....' keeping in view the french but i think del potro has the tools to down him in a 3 sets masters match.......

If that is the case and you are allowed more options in your poll you should have included Soderling who is the only player to beat Nadal in the French Open.

He is not going to be invincible even if he stays healthy to do well in this year's clay season. I think Federer, Djokovic and Del Potro -- all three could trouble him.
