I think Nadal can handle pressure. Hopefully he'll improve his serve so we can see him playing Federer more often on the fast surfaces.mangoes said:I truly don't know. And personally, I cannot see another player as No. 1.
However, I think, in 2006, the pressure is going to be on Nadal more than Roger. Nadal has to defend all those points and many will be coming after him. Next year will be a real test for Nadal. I think most have accepted Roger's position in the game of tennis but, I think 2006 will have Nadal with a bullseye on his butt.......... Good Luck Rafa.........

roddick on grass! :haha:adee-gee said:Nadal on clay. Safin on hard. Roddick on grass when he hires me as his coach and makes the necessary improvements in his game.
Nadal as a whole though, he'll grab the no.1 spot in the not too distant future and then have battles with Federer to regain it.

This is realy becoming irritating, so many people seriously mentioning Miami as a real hard-court. Miami is extremely slow, it is almost like clay! Nadal was always strong on that tournament and will be strong in future - but faster hard-courts are a different story.richie21 said:it seems nadal is winning this poll widely
i'm still not sure about his ability to compete with rodger on hard courts in the long term(in one game,yes,like we saw in miami but in the long term ,not sure)
