Would say last year from the clay season till the end of the Open for sure, that will be his best run, 3 majors in a row. Unless your name is Federer, you have most likely had some injury issues that have hampered you, so 100% is tough for most.

Most pro players have injury issues. It's not just Rafa and Rafa has it pretty good compared to guys like Nalbandian, Del Potro or even Raonic. Just last week Berdych and Djoko retired.
More and more players are injured because the calendar is too demanding and puts too much physical pressure on the players.

I say till the end of the USO last year he was completely fit. He played pretty sloppy and seemed tired in Tokyo even though he won, and we've seen him this year. That part speaks for itself. I would say he was probably fine at the AO though up until the injury. He was playing like crap already by that point though.

It's weird because his level dropped significantly just after USO last year. He played crappy in Bangkok, then had the shoulder issues, gave a huge effort at WTF but somehow never recovered the scintillating form that he showed at the USO last year. Is it because he felt like he had accomplished his main goals? Is it mostly mental? Did he relax too much? Or is it just physical? But to me USO 2010 is the last time he played REALLY well.

As far as I know he's not injured now, so he's fit enough to play. He was fine at the World Tour Finals. He was fine at RG and at Wimbledon too. He said the foot injury wasn't an issue because he used anesthetic and didn't feel any pain during the matches. That's not why he lost.
Anyway, the OP is a ******* troll who for some reason thinks it's funny to pretend he's a Nadal fan.

When was the last time he was mentally owned by another player? He has nightmares about Novak beating him dozens more times.

According to excerpts from his book his foot has been injured since 2004.

+1. Though Nadal did'n play well in the first few rounds a Wimbly.

I think he was fit up until the age of 3...then came the injuries!
