    But 2009 was definitely a worse year than 2012.
    In 2009, Nadal lost at Roland Garros. His only loss ever!
    Also in 2009, Nadal skipped Wimbledon (he was defending champion).
    And in 2009, Nadal suffered his worst slam loss ever, 6-2 6-2 6-2 vs Del Potro.
    And in 2009, Nadal lost all his round robin matches at WTF and didn't even win a set!

    Compare that to 2012, where Nadal won Roland Garros by only dropping a set, and had his 2nd best Australian Open EVER (and in my opinion that final vs Djokovic was Nadal's best performance EVER in a loss).

    We still don't know if he will play in AO, and you talk about winning the title?

    What Nadal needs for a title in AO2013?

    Easy draw to the semi finals

    Federer in the semifinals

    In the second semi-final Murray and Djokovic to destroy each other in a match that will last for ten hours, because obviously five hours this year was not enough for Nadal! :)

    Doesn't sound very possible!

    NSK/Rafa2005rg/130 isn't even entertaining anymore, and it will be thoroughly enjoyable to see him eat crow for the foreseeable future when all his predictions fall.

    Firstly, I'm not "NSK" or RAFA2005RG, those are completely separate people/accounts. Secondly, I'm not here to be entertaining, I'm here to talk about tennis. :p

    Not sure what you're laughing at, that's why people register on Talk Tennis. To TALK about TENNIS. :p

    @AustralianOpen: ‘My knee is coming along okay, but a stomach virus has left me unable to get ready in time to tackle the rigours of a Grand Slam.’ - #Rafa

    Just okay. In NSK logic, I suppose that means 12 slams in a row now, right?

    You are correct, Federer is #2 and competing for slams, while Nads is at home with a stomach ache, lmao.
