Federer came the closest he has been ever last french open in beating Federer, He then actually beat him on Clay as well. Nadal got a very easy field at Wimbledon and then the real decline of Nadal. Is Nadal going to be the next Hewitt or Roddick who amazed everyone when they first came but could not change the game with the times unlike Federer or Sampras

Earlier in the year Fed was in decline and now it's Nadal.

Yes, they will decline eventually and surprise they might even retire as well.

Please Nadal always sucks at the end of the year, 2005 was the only exception. He will be back to his old dominating self at the beginning of the year!

Very true:lol: :lol:

Now we only need a "Who will roast Nadal in Paris" thread to complete the hysteria from one loss.

(Sorry Rogiman, but that thread does live a bit in infamy)
:haha: :haha: Just in case some newbie Fedtard gets a lightbulb moment......DO NOT POST SUCH A THREAD!!!

I don't like Nadal but it's being presumptuous to say that he is declining. It's just one loss.

He had a rough day at the office, that's all. Lots of players have horrible losses, and they come out just fine. Sampras lost to George What's-his-name at Wimby in 2002. Guess what he ended up doing later in the year? ;)

Bad day for Rafa, yeah, but a little bit too soon to ring the death knell.

First Roger loses it(then gets it back....until the next loss); now Rafa's losing it (gosh - will he ever get it back....even when the clay season comes around again?) Next it'll be Novak losing some match unexpectedly, and he'll be losing it with no hope of recovery - at the tender age of 20. And now Nalbandian will soon be the new Number 1 after such a historic victory today......before losing it at some point, of course. These possible declines are never-ending.:rolleyes:

Rafa's an old man now. It's time to let the kids take over.
