Aside from Berdych, none of those have achieved anything at a Slam worth talking about which backs up my point.

Since being in the top 20, how many of those were ahead of him Singularity?

I haven't read all posts in this thread, so i don't know, if this wasn't mentioned.

With this win, Nadal leveled Bjorn Borg with 608 wins and tomorrow has chances to reach Yevgeni Kafelnikov with 609 wins. Hope I remember it right

They're top 10 - 15 players for the most part. Those are the players he needed to beat to get into the top 20. I think Cilic is the only one he's beaten since then, but mostly he hasn't faced players ranked above him.

The next step would be to get some more top 10 wins. He's had several in regular ATP events, so I don't think this is impossible if he keeps improving.

Nadal routined Berdych in Indian Wells, his first HC tournament back in a year.
considering the facts that A: typically Nadal is way better on clay than hard and B: typically Berdych is way better on hard than clay, I think it's safe to assume that Rafael has nothing to fear facing Tomas on clay this season
Del Potro maybe, but anyone has to watch out for him

uhhh
I hate to break it to you but this is not exactly true, it is sort of an illusion that Monte Carlo suits Nadal's game perfectly, in fact I might argue that ROland Garros is preferable
his balls were not getting very great spin at all all of MC week, fact

of course no point in arguing with you..........Nadal sucked in MC final that's why he lost today he was in god mode against the known Clay god Raonic whos ground game is 5x better than Novak's........
