    Yep good article. Nadal is a much better player on clay and a greater fighter.

    Federer doesn't stand a chance at the FO.

    I have a feeling Federer won't make it to the final this year.

    Hey at least it's only 5 reasons why he can't and not 50. There are probably at least that many. Seems like they are being nice.

    The fact that it needs a thread just to say why is pointless

    To beat Nadal Fed has to adopt a new tactic

    go all out

    needs 80% first serves at least

    FH has to be on fire, thats his bread and butter

    BH HAS to stay consistent, or semi consistent, with a slice as backup

    and most of all

    whenever theres a chance, do the UNTHINKABLE

    attack the net on clay

    make sure its a wide ball, know that Nadal likes to go cross court

    and pounce

    Nadal will change tactics eventually but, thats all good, youll have him rattled by then

    ATTACKING is the key, you cant beat nadal by out defending him

    Anyone who says Federer isn't past his prime is delusional.

    This thread should have been presented at Fed's RG trophy ceremony.

    I bet Andre and John were epic facepalming after they read this on their laptops.

    Altitude at Madrid Open means Nadal won't get past Murray, but if he did he would go down in straight sets to Federer.

    I thought I remember Andre being at the match after Fed had won it during the trophy routine I lipread Agassi saying "I am so happy for you man".

    Right or have I lost my mind?

    I have not seen the moment you're referring to, but I'm sure he was happy for Fed. After all, it was a very similar story in the 1999 final where Andre came back from two sets to love to win the title and complete a career slam. He can definitely relate to him.

    These are good photos of Rafa and show just how much he wants to win the WTF. I have never seen him so pissed at his match with Berdych. I was laughing so hard and wish I could have heard was he was saying.

    Sorry for the derailment.

    Fed probably won't ever beat Rafa at the FO but I wouldn't say its impossible.

    Yeah I think you're right :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Iob14Vp-_8#t=4m50s
    Fed said Andre told him it felt like it was his destiny to win the FO someday.
