    I'll be sure to quote you when Nadal is beating up Djokovic, federer and Murray at RolandGarros2013 and for many more years to come. Nadal's forehand is the SCARIEST forehand I've ever seen. :p

    Vina del merda sounds like an important tournament.

    Hmmm. I'm seeing mixed comments here. Sounds like he's the same old Rafa (tennis-wise)....

    Yep... Rafa practicing them moonballs for the defense of his French title.

    I'll be sure, like many, to quote you on this when your hero loses to Novak in the quarters.

    Is it just me or does the score read 4-4?

    Nice running DTL FH from Nadal.

    It does but it's a mistake, it's 5-3.

    Yeah. He will also never catch up to Federer's 15 grand slams now. Federer is DONE as well. As you said before his match against Raonic, we can't even be sure that Federer can get a racquet on Raonic's serves.

    Not the best camera angle.

    Nadal definitely not moving well to his left...

    Yes Nadal is winning, but he is definitely a lot weaker movement wise.

    Yep, Nadal, the greatest clay-court player in world history, with 7 RolandGarros titles, and a 52-1 record at RolandGarros, is going to lose to Djokovic who has only ever won one set in 4 meetings (in the worst RolandGarros playing conditions I've ever seen). :p

    Probably, the guy will always be drawn to Nadal's matches because doing so will make him remember his 15 minutes of fame.

    Too early to judge of course but Nadal looks a tad slower than before.

    He has to beat a lot more people before he gets to Djoko which I doubt he will

    For now. No doubt he will age like everybody else, but the reason his movement is not up to par is obviously because he was off for so long. It will take time.

    Nadal takes his shirt off and a ballboy gets in the way of the camera. Somewhere a director in a TV gallery just blew his top.

    You mean when Novak won 8 games in a row and Rafa begged for the officials to stop play because he couldn't handle the conditions compared to his opponent?

    Yeah... very impressive indeed. :rolleyes:

    If he plays like today any top ten would triple beagle him, he is probably 60% I thought he was way better.

    Cvac might as well skip the FO and practice for Wimbledon. Nadal will dominate everyone at the FO.

    I don't know why Cvac doesn't just retire already and spare us his pathetic tennis game. It's probably because he is filled to the brim with greed and will do just about anything to make a quick buck.

    He's been gone for 7 months, his level is fine considering that.

    I was expecting him to be at 80% 90%, not 60%.

    Nadal looks a lot skinnier....match practice will sort that out I reckon and a bit of gym.

    If this is Nadal at 60%, then every clay-court player on the ATP tour should be quaking in their boots. Nadal could show his highest clay-court level ever in 2013. :p

    Wasn't Rosol just involved in the longest doubles match in tennis history and won it? So that's 2 feathers in his cap right now.

    Ok gud one from rafa so far, movement will definitely improve as he plays some more matches good to see his aggressive forehand unlike the pushers djoker n murraa, but the other question remains can he still play on hardcourts at top level or will he play at all!!!

    That was funny. Nadal was really having a go at the referee when Djokovic was mounting his comeback.

    At 60% he will win Viña del Mar and Sao Paulo. And at 80% he will win Acapulco. He wont drop a set in the three tournaments,
    And at 90% he will dismantle Lance Djokovic, Candy Murray and ******* at Roland Garros.

    And you know it.

    Nadal hitting great backhands there.

    From what I've seen he is a bit wary with his movement, but his shots are there. He even seems to go for a bit more, to compensate for his movement still lacking a bit...

    So the potential Quarter Final is Nadal vs Traver or Montanes...I might as well jump the gun.
