    I made the point that this guy is a freak on clay. He's so far and away the greatest clay courter of all time, it's a joke. I said he'd clock joker and Fed and lose one set at most between the two.

    Several of you ripped me for over-valuing Nadal's greatness and making him more than he is. Well, he just beat the number 1 and 3 players in the world 6 sets to none. He won 37 games and lost 16!!! This is coming off a 6-1, 6-1, 6-1 pasting of one of the best clay courters in the world in Almagro.

    The guy is sickening. He'd have crushed Borg too--and I think Borg is the second greatest clay courter to have ever lived.

    Yeah, and thankfully instead of just recieving the trophy on thursday he actually beat Djokovic and Federer with ease.

    I think he wants 2 cookies. One for making this thread and another one for being a rocket scientist.

    Actually, I would like five cookies. And I'd like the morons who felt Nadal would not destroy these guys to admit they are morons for under appreciating Nadal's brilliance on clay.

    Hey, it's nice to gloat when guys talk out their butts and show how little they know the game. The fact that some of you felt the need to respond to my thread with criticism shows your own insecurity.

    Actually, you showed your own insecurity by making a thread to brag about your prediction and shove the match in the people's faces who disagreed with you.

    That was obvious. Predict what Nadal will do other than on clay and when you are correct we will bow down to you and you can bask in your glory.

    Yes he would have crushed Borg to with that wooden racket.


    And Fed played rubbish by his standards. It was hardly surprising by his performance throughout the tournament. Enjoy your little moment now till the hard court season begins.

    Well done on your prediction. I felt the same way. No one touches Nadal on RG Clay. Brilliant performance as expected.
