    lets suppose nadal doesnt reach final of any 4 slams this year, like federer of 2011, will he be able to recover next year or not

    no men has won the same slam 8 times or more (sampras curse)

    also lets suppose that federer or djokvic defeats nadal in FO final
    will nadal will blame his knees or parents divorce for the defeat.

    Federer reached the final of the French Open in 2011.

    He will invent some other problem, like another kind of virus.

    Any future loss, I'm sure there will be an excuse. No one gets any credit for beating Nadal.

    He probably has a spot in the French final though. Probably. Even if he can get to just 80% by May, the guy is invincible enough on clay to beat six straight people no problem.

    I think he could recover if he wanted to, in the case that he doesn't. He is still in his 20s.

    Nadal is playing 2 clay events in February, and will have won 6 titles by June, and enter Wimbledon in peak form and physically fresher than 2012. You figure out the rest OP.

    Should he lose to Fed or Djokovic at RG, he would never recover.

    A man simply does not "beat" Nadal, only the gods decide that.

    My point exactly. Lost to Rosol and he's out for , what 8 months now? Imagine the impact of him getting beat by Fed or Djokovic :twisted:

    nadal_GOAT_king only posts to hate on Nadal. Talk about being owned by Nadal, this NGK clown sure has been. This shows how great Nadal is, he can drive people to make accounts and devote their lives to hating on him :eek:

    I don't know where this Nadal doesn't admit to being beaten come from. Did you see his interviews after the AO final last year? Have you seen his interviews after playing Federer? Just pure ignorance.

    Okay....

    So you aren't owned by Nadal, you are owned by a poster called "NSK" which as far as I've seen doesn't ever post. Congrats!

    This does not make sense. You can get embarrassed by losing to a much lower ranked player but there is no shame losing to either of these 2. In fact, after 8 months of absence, even getting a set against these two will be reported in a positive light for Nadal.

    I must have somehow irked you that you chose to respond to what I post lately.

    Why aren't you posting from your other active account 6-1 6-3 6-0? Tired of handling multiple accounts?

    At RG. He admitted himself that the loss to Soderling was worse than losing to Rosol

    Federer played RG final in 2011...

    I think, in this case, Nadal would win RG 2014 without dropping a set...

    The answer of course depends on just how he performs at the slams. His ranking is going to drop, so if he runs into Djokovic in the QFs and loses an epic match and looks healthy then sure he can recovery in 2014. But I have a feeling that if he isn't making slam finals it will be because his body is just on the way out. If he doesn't hit old Nadal form for at least a little bit of this year then his career as a slam winner is over.

    Its ironic that you are talking about a poster of the past like you are obsessed with it, yet you only registered in March 2012. There is no doubt you are a multiple of someone else. And the fact you think I'm 6-1 6-3 6-0 shows you have no idea about me. In fact all you had to do was compare the posts of 6-1 6-3 6-0 to realize our styles are completely different (and realize some of our posts were posted at exactly the same time).

    Irony is you getting all butthurt despite denying that you're NSK. Yeah, I compared your posts with all your other dupe accounts and I must say you did quite a job in trying to disguise yourself with this one but you slacked in some posts. Not to mention, overdoing it with your laughable simultaneous postings :oops:

    Everything I know about life I learned from Monty Python. Except about how to play tennis. I learned that from Fletch.

    Are you saying you were on this forum when NSK was? I've been on here since 2011 and I've never seen a NSK post. You registered in early 2012. That would indicate you have a multiple account, not me.

    That probably was more because it was at RG causing his only hiccup and the fact it let Federer complete his career GS.

    I'm interested in this "case" of yours. Post your findings. Otherwise, stop going off-topic. :mad:

    2013 for Nadal is shaping up to be one of Nadal's most successful seasons ever, with possible wins in

    -Vina del Mar
    -Sao Paulo
    -Acapulco
    -Monte Carlo
    -Barcelona
    -Rome
    -Madrid
    -Roland Garros

    Nadal also has the best Wimbledon results in the past three years than anyone else, so I wouldn't be surprised if he did very well in Wimbledon2013 either. The comeback is just beginning... :p
