Default 2010 Wimbledon - 2011 French Open similarities

Remember how everyone was counting Nadal out during the first week of 2010 Wimbledon? He needed 5 sets in both his R64 and R32 matches against Haase and Petzschner and everyone was talking about how bad he looked, how worn down he was physically, and how he had no chance of winning the tournament let alone ending the year at #1.

As it turned out, he met up with Robin Soderling in the QF, someone who had beaten him before in big matches and who had established a reputation of being a giant killer. He beat him, and carried that momentum to play his absolute best in the SF and F to win his second Wimbledon.

The same thing will happen here. He's going to be extremely motivated seeing Soderling, who he hates and absolutely does not want to lose to, on the other side of the net and find his best tennis. From there, he's going to have his 6th French Open, end Djokovic's streak, and dominate the rest of the year.

Have a nice day Rafa haters, you're about to be depressed again in 6 days.

I really don't feel it's the same thing. Nadal was much more convincing at Wimbledon, in his body language alone.

No. Nadal played good matches in R2 and R3 at Wimbledon, the fact is he only really struggled due to Petzschner's and Haase's huge serving. Here he's actually played pretty bad matches thus far.

The difference is that Soderling is not as good in Wimbledon as he is in RG.

Surprise, surprise a nadulltard being a nadulltard.

Last year's Wimbledon was the worst slam ever. Murray hadn't been to a QF in a tournament since the AO, Djokovic was playing without a serve, he chocke in RG to Melzer after having 2 sets to love, Roger was mugging it up against Falla and some serbian journeyman, Roddick lost to Lu.

At RG this year we have Djokovic who has defeated Nadull 4 times in a row, Federer who seems to enjoy the fast balls and Murray who has had the best clay results ever.

At Wimby 2010,,he had just finished his cake walk draw @ RG,& was confident for wimby.
However this time around Novak stole his manhood & he is scared right now.

Rafa didn't play bad at all in the first rounds. He got outserved by two guys playing out of their skins. Besides, during the first week the courts are 100% quicker than the second week, when grass becomes clay. I see no comparison. If there is a comparison between both then it is Fed his Wimbledon 2010 vs. Rafa Roland Garros 2011. Very unconvincing first round, almost being beaten. Then they keep on struggling but for some reason still win pretty comfortably (in scorelines) before being straightforwardly beaten in the Quarter Final. Which I expect will happen to Nadal like it happened to Fed at Wimby last year against Berdych.

To be honest that crossed my mind, but like the poster above said, Soderling is playing much better; in Wimbledon he struggled through a 5 setter against Ferrer before playing Rafa. There's no denying a win on Wednesday would be a massive confidence booster for Rafa though

^ this. I said at the time that people were underestimating Nadal's form at Wimby last year because on grass you slip up even the tiniest bit to a big server and BOOM there's the set gone. And that's exactly what happened. But he never looked close to losing either match and he played as well as could be expected against those opponents on fast grass. He was also full of confidence from winning every important title for months.

This is not at all the same. This is Clay, his home turf, and he's stinking up the joint with his play and admitting in interviews he's feeling pressured and isn't confident. It would be stupid to write him off at RG of all places, but he has no chance against Soderling unless he does something drastic.

Wimbledon grass is quicker at the start of the two weeks when it's at its greenest, hence why the likes of Kendrick, Gulbis, Haase and Petzschner caused him problems and Muller actually beat him.

Nadal will get to the final, but honestly I don't think he's playing well enough to beat an in form Djokovic OR an in form Federer in the final. Maybe he'll pick his form up and play an incredible final like last yeat though, it could happen.
