Still would be an amazing year if he won another master 1000, WTF, USO and an Olympic gold
Then he'll have
2 GS
1 GS RU
1 OG
3 M1000
WTF
How would you rank this year in Rafa's years

i don't have high hope for us open to be honest, lots of big hitters can beat him. Overall, not a bad year, would be better if he could win the AO when he was 1 or 2 points away from a 5:2 lead in the final set

He wont win US or Olympics.. 3 sets on grass.. unlikely these days. And Novak has the US sewn up already.

Default Re: All ok with Nadal at Wimbledon?

We should be happy he fought to make it to 5th set. There is absolutely nothing he can do to stop Rosol today. Rosol had everything on his side today from the luck to the conditions etc.

He has absolutely zero chance of winning the Olympics. But wouldn't write him out about US Open and post US Open tournaments where all players would be worn out and now Rafa can rest and start freshly the second part of the summer season.

A very big negative is that he will be seeded 3rd for the time being. Probably until WTF at least. Also bye, bye year end N1.

That. I don't believe in his chances at the olympics either. But for the USO, he'll have chances. In the last two years, he played better at the USO than that Wimbledon. Also, at the USO, we have a high bounce, more than AO, and more than at Wimbledon.

This Wimbledon was so weird, I couldn't see Rafa ok in any moment. His footwork wasn't good, neither his ROS. Only his serve, if he can keep that it's a positive thing.

Cinci, Shanghai or Paris would be a nice consolation as well. Don't you think?

I believe WTF is more crucial. Rafa really needs to win it at least once to make his achievements more complete

Default Re: All ok with Nadal at Wimbledon?

I don't think this defeat is worrying in regard with Nadal's health. His mind was never on Wimbledon ever since Euro2012 started. He has arrived today in Kiev to watch the final live accompanied by Pau Gasol and Fernando Alonso. I don't think Rafa is disappointed he lost at SW19.

He can do with his life whatever he likes but in this case he should have not entered Wimbledon at all. He should have come up with an injury/exhaustion excuse and just pass on the tournament GS or not.

I find his focus not being that much on tennis anymore, maybe he wants to just enjoy life - go fishing, play golf, shooting ads, spending time on his hobbies like football etc. No problem but if that is so just leave the game and tell your fans you have new priorities.

I on my part do not expect from Rafa to win anything significant anymore. He'll probably keep hanging in, reaching a couple of SF/F and not winning a title. For me Olympics and WTF are of no importance, meaningless titles. But USOpen is quite different story. Unfortunately he's not winning it again. IMO he will retire after this season.

Que espectáculo!!! creo que nadie podrá igualar lo q hemos hecho!!! Que rabia no haber podido estar en Kiev!!! Felicidades ESPAÑA!!

Amazing!! I think It will be very difficult for anyone to repeat this. What a shame not being in kiev!! Congratulations SPAIN!!!

-----

From Rafa's Facebook. So I think he didn't go to Kiev. There's no photo of him there too.

The point is: his game didn't work this time. I don't know what kind of things he missed, if there was a physical problem. But in 4 matches on grass this year, he didn't show in any of them a game for grass. Was defensive, his footwork was weird, and his ROS was awful. He has to work very hard if he wants to have a chance on Olympic games. Vamos!

Some fans noticed those dots on his left knee. I don't know if it's from injections or something else.
