Almost everyone but his diehard fans seem to be losing some respect for Rafael Nadal lately, including the players.

Other than his BA title win over good friend Juan Monaco, Nadal has sort of been the tour's punching bag since last Roland Garros (doubtlessly due to unfortunate mishaps and recovery process, or perhaps ongoing damage of some sort), and has steadily dropped points and is under some threat to drop further in ranking.

However, he's back on the clay, "the wellspring from which he flows". Is this the moment the proud Clay Warrior will reverse the trend and come out on top? If not, which player do you think will knock out the all time record 8 time champion this time?

Place your bets...

Nadal follows through on his forehand cyclone of death - Monte Carlo 2008


Respectfully,
masterclass

Makes him a person with a better H2H against 2 best players of all time :shrug:. He needs more slams.

klizan with a slight chance, but I would go for Ferrer. He is in a reasonable form in contrast to Nadal.

But maybe Nadal will surprise all and win the whole thing, but that would need someone to take out Nole, and with his draw I don't see it happening

Nadal is vulnerable at the moment. There's a decent chance he could get beaten in the opening rounds by someone like Thiem or Klizan. If he builds momentum I still don't think he's in the frame of mind to beat someone of the caliber of Djokovic. Even Ferrer might be too strong for him.
