With Murray injured, the only one who has a chance of beating him is Djokovic.

And he will, for the Rafa Slam.

I fail to see the relevance of including suresh on this list but we will have to wait and see. Like I said, Nadal's prime is long past him, he's not the clay beast he once was, he's too inconsistent these days on clay, he hasn't been playing well, he can't sustain decent form anymore, he's very vulnerable right now, and has been declining for well over a year.

Crapping his pants and losing five games to Simone Bolelli in such an embarrassing fashion, are you really trying to convince anybody that isn't pathetic? You'd have to be a professional comedian to think Nadal can win RG over Rolaids. Based on that alone, if Nadal somehow struggles to beat Denis Istomin in the second round, playing his mug tennis, he will surely lose to Eduardo Schwank in the third. But it wouldn't matter even if Schwank gave him a walk over.

I don't see Nadal winning squat dropping the ball short, having no back hand, no forehand and no serve. Do you get it now? If Nadal played Rolaids right now he would be lucky to win two games on his favourite surface. He doesn't come close to the talent of Rolaids, never mind Toblerone. Nope. Nadal is simply incapable of winning three games off a non Zombie ****. It all just proves exactly what I have been saying all along; Rolaids is a dead lock for the trophy even before the tournament began.

I'm not kidding. You know it, I know it, the whole world knows it.

Clap Clap Clap :). Best forum impersonation ever.

I was wondering whether to do the *** version on the Clarky version and I went with the Clarky version :)

But here is the *** version of players who can beat Rafa at 2012 RG

1) Jesus, but only in his absolute prime
2) Bjorn Borg on Steroids if Rafa was feeling mentally low because he just found out he had AIDS, someone kidnapped his dog and stole his kia

Nah, I'm a real poster. I post real tennis opinion. Not crap like Clarky21. So if you did a realistic impersonation of me it would be very boring (for an impersonation). I can see you weren't able to go the realistic route.

Nole 2.0 could beat him...not sure if Nole is quite at that form right now.

The thing about the top three is that it is hard to judge their form until they actually play each other. I think Nadal probably has the edge in form right now and RG has been his play pen. I haven't yet seen much of Nole 2.0 this year so Nadal is definitely the favorite.

You wish, you bitter hater. You're not a true Nadal fan, like myself and Senti. Us true Nadal fans know that Nadal will win a hundred billion slams, end world hunger, end human conflict, and undergo apotheosis. And you're content with claiming that he will only win 10 RG titles?

Pump your brakes there, that match against Kafelnikov marked the end of Kuerten's prime as the hip injury which was the death knell of his time as a contender descended with all its career-wrecking physical toll.

And the Pioline match was good -all you need do is check out the 16-14 breaker on Youtube to see that.

Djokovic 2.0 was never there on 2010. Djokovic 2.0 proved he can beat Nadal on any surface at any given time on any match format, and made Nadal his personal b**ch for 7 finals in a row. Sadly, Djokovic can't find that form again. It was clear in AO, that even though he won the event, he wasn't the Nole he was last year.

Crapping his pants and losing five games to Simone Bolelli in such an embarrassing fashion, are you really trying to convince anybody that isn't pathetic? You'd have to be a professional comedian to think Nadal can win RG over Rolaids. Based on that alone, if Nadal somehow struggles to beat Denis Istomin in the second round, playing his mug tennis, he will surely lose to Eduardo Schwank in the third. But it wouldn't matter even if Schwank gave him a walk over.

I don't see Nadal winning squat dropping the ball short, having no back hand, no forehand and no serve. Do you get it now? If Nadal played Rolaids right now he would be lucky to win two games on his favourite surface. He doesn't come close to the talent of Rolaids, never mind Toblerone. Nope. Nadal is simply incapable of winning three games off a non Zombie ****. It all just proves exactly what I have been saying all along; Rolaids is a dead lock for the trophy even before the tournament began.

I'm not kidding. You know it, I know it, the whole world knows it.

Djokovic 2.0 would never be able to beat Nadal 2010, even at the US Open. And Nadal 2010 is here, right now.



Seriously, Pethnzer Pechner was about to beat Nadal at Wimbledon in 2010, and he would have if Nadal wouldn't have taken a fake MTO (not to mention getting coached twice during the match, resulting in 2000$ fine), and dropped set to Soderling and Haase. On 2011 Wimbly Nadal reached the final dropping just one set to Murray in the SF.

So: At Wimbly 2011 Nadal > 2010 Nadal

Next is the USO. Nadal had the most pathetic draw I've seen in my life at USO 2010. Let's see, Nadal played Fiasco in the QF and ladies and gentlemen, Nadal played Youzhny (yes, Youzhny) in the SF in order to reach the final (in which, again, he received illegal coaching and even admitted it).
In 2011 Nadal dropped only one set in the SF before losing in the final, and that was, again, to Murray. As you all probably know by now - Murray > Youzhny.

So: At USO 2011 Nadal > 2010 Nadal


The only slam I can agree Nadal played better in is the FO. But FO is irrelevant because Nadal didn't play Djokovic in 2010 nor in 2011. So, the conclusion is, Djokovic 2.0 bear a far superior Nadal. Djokovic, at his best, is a bad machup for Nadal who can beat him anytime, anywhere, even at the FO dare I say :)

Federer played an awful match in 2010, unlike 2011 where he played a good match. In 2010 I don't even know he reached 2 MPs let alone win sets, he was awful. In 2011 he deserved to win, but only Federer at his best should win Nole at his best. We've seen in FO 2011. Nadal isn't as good as Djokovic 2.0 - never was.

In 2011 he deserved to win, but only Federer at his best should win Nole at his best. We've seen in FO 2011. Nadal isn't as good as Djokovic 2.0 - never was.

*** wants to prove that Rafa beat Novak 2.0. It was no way an identical match, Roger Novak 2010 and 2011. Roger lost 6-1 6-2 etc. Novak played a five setter against Roger and then played Rafa, who had a very easy path till final

P.S. - No offense Clarky, just ribbing on you.
you forgot the nadal's wax double.
(according to clarky, the nadal would be lucky to win more than 3 games against himself) ;)

Wow, imagine if Nadal wins his 7th, 8th, 9th or 10th Roland Garros title. That would be quite something, and worthy of unprecedented praise.

Derailing the thread again, are we?

Seriously, Pethnzer Pechner was about to beat Nadal at Wimbledon in 2010, and he would have if Nadal wouldn't have taken a fake MTO (not to mention getting coached twice during the match, resulting in 2000$ fine), and dropped set to Soderling and Haase. On 2011 Wimbly Nadal reached the final dropping just one set to Murray in the SF.

So: At Wimbly 2011 Nadal > 2010 Nadal
Next is the USO. Nadal had the most pathetic draw I've seen in my life at USO 2010. Let's see, Nadal played Fiasco in the QF and ladies and gentlemen, Nadal played Youzhny (yes, Youzhny) in the SF in order to reach the final (in which, again, he received illegal coaching and even admitted it).
In 2011 Nadal dropped only one set in the SF before losing in the final, and that was, again, to Murray. As you all probably know by now - Murray > Youzhny.

So: At USO 2011 Nadal > 2010 Nadal

The only slam I can agree Nadal played better in is the FO. But FO is irrelevant because Nadal didn't play Djokovic in 2010 nor in 2011. So, the conclusion is, Djokovic 2.0 bear a far superior Nadal. Djokovic, at his best, is a bad machup for Nadal who can beat him anytime, anywhere, even at the FO dare I say :)


I guess I imagined those sets he lost to Delpo and Fish then.


Total bs. Nadal played light years better at Wimby 2010 then he did in 2011. There really is no comparison.


Yeah,his WTA worthy popgun serve was just fantabulous last year at the USO,where he struggled with the likes of Golubev in the first round,nearly losing that match if not for a world class choke job from Andrey. Nadal was awful all the way through the USO last year. You know that,but you're just trolling,and spewing your usual Nadal hate like you always do.

LOL , ha ha ha .......

he lost 3 sets before the finals in 2011 - one each to delpo, fish and murray

5 sets before the finals in 2010 - two each to petzschener & haase , one to soderling ( nearly got bagelled in that set )

in none of the matches in 2011 , he was in danger of losing, in 2010 ; he was down two sets to one twice ....and in much more danger of losing

he was by some distance better in 2011 wimbledon...

LOL ... nadal was also about to lose a set to istomin in 2nd round in USO 2010. istomin choked from 5-1 up in the 2nd set breaker ...

in 2011, he beat murray convincingly in the semis , same for nalbandian in 3R and thrashed roddick ( admittedly off-colour ) .. although he was slightly weaker than in 2010, it wasn't that much of a difference at all ...
