Just in case Cesc's link stops working, this is the direct link.

But, yeah, interesting points from Hewitt and Roddick, but Stefanki hit it on the nose, IMO, when he compares Nadal to Borg, Chang, and Hewitt in terms of the fact they're all good movers but they're not as big as Nadal.

People forget that Nadal is 6'1 and 187 pounds. That's not the ideal frame for a grinder-style baseliner. At that height, you'd think Nadal would be more typical of a guy with a bigger serve and more netplay in his game.

Yes, but stefanki thinks that Roddick has the same determination.

"There are no easy draws"
Is Hewitt kidding? Djokovic has been on Federer's half for 5 of the last 6 slams, and you're telling me Nadal doesn't have easy draws?

and what Nadal is 10-0 vs Verdasco. Sure he is not going to lose any sleep over playing Verdasco

Did you happen to watch the Australian Open match? Nadal had to work harder to beat Verdasco then he did to beat Federer. Verdasco is a different player in 2009. But still not good enough to beat Nadal on clay imo.

Hewitt said something about "this day and age" there are no easy draws. Interesting. Yeah, I forget Nadal is a big guy. Even in this video, when he's practicing in the capris and grey shirt, he looks tall and lean, but on TV he often looks stocky.

Are you the same guy who keeps saying Djoker is 'the biggest threat to Nadal' on clay? Surely by that, you mean Djoker is second best, behind only Nadal? That would mean let me see... that, god forbid, he might just be better than Murray or Versdasco? :shock::(:oops:
