Doubt it. He'll play either Djokovic or Federer, and lately he's been playing not so well. He'll probably lose a few sets along the way.

I'm surprised I'm the only one that voted 0 sets lost.

I had to go with one set. It's a long tourney so I'm giving some credit to the rest of the field.

I said two, I can see a SF 4 setter, final 4 setter, or a 5 set final

I chose 2 (guarantee if he faces Djoker)

Reasoning:
Rafa has yet to beat Djoker in straight sets this year on clay so Im giving 1 set to Djoker here.
Roger will likely make it to the finals and while I dont think he will win I do think hell take a set off Rafa this year.

I went with four. One prior to the semifinals, and then three either in the semifinal or final, where he will be dethroned.

Rafa has beaten Djoko in straight sets in the Rome final.

2 sets in semis if he meets Djokovic.
1 set in the finals if he meets ExFed.
So he'll lose 3 sets.

my bad your right Djoker only managed a tiebreaker that match. But the other 3 this year Djoker has gotten a set off him.

Wow, Nadal udderly dominated last yr. Just look at how many bagels and breadsticks he put up. I say it's gonna be pretty hard to match that. 1 b4 semis, 1 in semis, 1 in finals.

Davis CUp is best of 5.....so Djoker failed to take a set there.

I said 4 though. I figure he might lose 1 in the early rounds, I also see if in worst scenario he lines up Del Potro, Djoker, Fed he loses 1 to each. Though I think Djoker could push him to 5 this year. Fed maybe to 5 if he works really hard but bets are on Fed only able to go 4 sets with Nadal on clay we will see though. I think the French Open might be a tad bit more interesting than originally perceived.

if you bet $1000 on Nadal losing at least 1 set all tournament you can win $200.:shock:

Its possible he loses a set or two(or three), but only against Fed and Nole and if Verdasco zones maybe. I think this year will be less one sided then the years before.

He will lose 2 or 3 sets between federer or djokovic if they meet

Yah, I picked 6 because three of those will go to Djokovic.
