    I saw Roddick had to use a frying pan in a match against a fan once. Pretty sure I could take Roddick/Nadal/other pro if he had to use a frying pan.


    Under what circumstances could you beat Nadal? If he played right handed? Had to have his legs tied together with only 6 inches of slack?


    Oh, and statistics show if we played any pro infinity times there's a 100% chance we'd win! There would also be matches where the pro double faulted on every service point and stumbled and fell down on every return.

    I believe that if I don't have to run I could beat Nadal. :)

    Let's design a game this way. I stand at the center mark with a bucket of balls. I drop (or fed by a ball machine) balls and wack them to Nadal's court at the rate of 1 second/shot (about the same rate as pro's rally). If Nadal returns successfully the point continues. If I miss or need to fire more than 15 shots, I lose.

    Good game?

    I'm confident I could beat Nadal if I'm dreaming.

    I could beat Nadal if we're comparing urine samples.

    I'm confident I could beat Nadal if he was injured, locked in cage and thrown deep in the sea

    You do realize Rafa is naturally right handed right?

    I'm pretty sure nobody on the planet that wasn't a pro could beat him, even if he played all right handed.

    I'd like my chances if he had to carry a refrigerator on his back. A big, full one. And no spilling.

    I could beat Nadal if I could move his water bottles .00001 mm out of alignment

    I'm confident I could beat Nadal on grass (the old kind that was not slow) if we were both using racquets w/o poly strings.

    I might be able to beat Nadal if we used wood racquets with nat gut strings and played on an old style grass court, where the ball only bounces up 2 inches. Oh yeah - and Nadal has to wear heavy insulated arctic mukluks instead of tennis shoes and only gets 20 seconds between serves strictly enforced.

    I don't think Nadal could handle my topspin if he were a half meter tall. His court speed would be an issue for him as well.

    Really why? You would still have nothing to lose and if anything it would create some hype around your name again. And if you lost it wouldn't take anything away from your upset at wimbledon.
