Yes and I've heard from several other Rafa fans that he's still far from his best.

Got to get their excuses prepared.

Win - win situation for them. If he wins, he's done it whilst injured and unprepared. If he loses they blame it on the knee injury.

IMO, a better indicator is to see how he'll perform at MC. If he has a great week there, win or lose, I think he'll be back on track.

Ballbashers are overrated and people on here will never acknowledge Almagro's ability on clay, that the majority on MTF thinks that doesn't mean they're right.



3 QF (unfortunately running into Nadal 3 times) > 1 SF and a lot of embarrassing losses

We've been over this. He doesn't need to be his best. The level he is showing already is enough to take home RG, and he'll only improve from here on

If he's not at his best, Djokovic CAN and will beat him. Like I said, it's VERY close between the two, and come Monte Carlo, my opinion my change.

How about this:

If Nadal wins RG I get perma-banned, if Djokovic wins RG you get perma-banned.

Hopefully I can get rid of your crazy ramblings.

They're not close, remember last year?

3-0

6-3 6-1 7-5 6-3 6-4 6-3 2-6 7-5

And we all know in what circumstances that one set was played.

the level on clay it`s a shit since many years....

not real clay court specialists anymore , the last were coria and gaudio.

in a real good clay era , guys like nole or roger would be defeated many times

I don't mind your presence here, there always need to be tards to be proven wrong time and time again. Seems like a lose-lose situation.

Djokovic has improved from there on in though, so I can't see it follow a similar pattern in the clay season (in terms of beatdown sets anyway). It will be interesting to say the least.

Nole's RG trophies really suggest I'm wrong, don't they? How can you guys react so testy to something that is common knowledge for anyone with a brain
