    The freshest Nadal has ever been, fresher than a junior more or less.

    Federer is going to struggle to win games against Nadal at this rate. And Djokovic won't ever have a 2011-like streak against Nadal again.

    LOL you would think he could afford a ball hopper instead of a paint bucket.

    But then he was always a humble guy

    Djokovic has a good current record against Nadal currently, what makes you think that's going to change any?

    Nadal has re-bridged the mental gap after losing 7 times in a row, and rebounded to beat Djokovic 3 times in a row. Clearly, Djokovic isn't beating Nadal another 7 times in a row.

    I've seen in person Kirilenko use some kind of bucket as well when practicing serve.

    Rafa should be worried about Lukas Rosol!

    Rosol was responsbile for a Healthy Nadal to get blown off the court and the face of tennis for ever.....

    Lukas Rosol is keepin an eye open for Nadal's return, then take him out again! LOL

    So he practices once in 4 months and Novak and Roger should be panicked.
    Wow, you do live in a dream world.

    It's not really likely, Nadal will not play in challengers.

    It's about time he starts practicing again. I am still not totally sold on his comeback until he starts actually playing again. His knees could always go on life support again so I will not get my hopes up about this.

    If he only plays half the season every year he should be able to preserve his knees.

    Djokovic has lost his last 3 matches to Nadal. C'mon, it is now November 2012, not early 2012.

    Watching Spain get Rosol-ed in the DC may not exactly help with his morale :neutral:
