    The knee is better. Wimbledon was and will remain Nadal's 2nd best Grand Slam after French Open.

    2014 is the return of the prodigal son on grass.

    I don't believe tennis fans on internet forums control the destiny of tennis players. I don't think you and I can jinx anyone.

    I have a strong feeling that Nadal will go for the Wimbledon this year.

    I predict Nadal will win at least 50% more sets at 2014 Wimbledon compared to 2013 Wimbledon. I know that's an impressive improvement but if anyone can do it is Nadal.

    He can't be at all happy with a second and first round appearances over the last two Wimbledon events. Time to make amends.

    If its the grass from the last couple of years no way he is winning. If it reverts back to the green dusty hard court like a few years ago he could. ..

    Like I said If Rafa or Nole win Wimby it would be monumental for their legacy!
    However I fancy Noles chances alot better then Rafas as Rafa hasn't been to round 3 since 2011:shock:

    2012 W 2R: L. Rosol d. R. Nadal - 6–7(9), 6–4, 6–4, 2–6, 6–4
    2013 W 1R: S. Darcis d. R. Nadal - 7-6(4), 7-6(8), 6-4

    The trend doesn't look particularly good.

    I know. In 2012 he just got Rosoled! No excuse. Rosol was just too good for him.
    In 2013 he just wasn't ready physically for grass. This was the worst Rafa I've seen in a match.

    From 2006 to 2011 this guy played 5 Wimbledon finals. You don't get to play 5 finals and 2 titles if you're not very good on the surface.

    He's fitter now than he was in mid 2013. His movement's much better. I'm sure he's good enough to survive the first week. In the 2nd week, the courts will suit his game.

    Rafa should play queens adapt to the surface before he gets knocked out early again!

    I know. I like Queens better. It is more prestigious than the 2nd rate Halle.

    If I created this thread after say Rafa wins Queens beating Murray in the final, where's the fun, eh? No one expects him to win Wimbledon again after what happened in last 2 years. But if you followed his career, you'd know he still can.

    Am I the only who thinks there should be 2 Grass masters? And deduct 2 HC masters?

    4 HC
    3 clay
    2 grass

    seems great.

    I know you're kidding. Fed will win at least 1 Masters 1000 this year, Indian Wells, Madrid or Cincinnati.

    I think most of us fans would like that to happen. Unfortunately, it won't. Grass courts are very expensive to maintain compare to hard courts and even clay.

    Probably Madrid. He's always played great there. The Cincinnati Slam might be too fast for him now.:twisted:

    I really hope Djokovic wins Cincinnati this year. Fed's best Master 1000s are, however, Cincinnati, Madrid, Indian Wells.

    Is Grass expensive because they need to keep growing new grass on the court? (I don't even know if it's real grass or aritificial). Also the rain would ruin it for everyone?

    It's more complicated than that buddy. There are so many politics involve on that one. It may not happen on our lifetime.

    Yeah I was thinking, keep the 2 HC masters which are before the US Open so it's a HC swing. And change one of the HC master after Aus Open to Grass (since everyone has just been playing on hard) and change one HC master after the US open to grass.

    Obviously it doesn't sound so easy the way I see it but...

    Gee,seems like I've seen this movie before-as in, the last two years. Remind me again, how'd Wimbledon turn out for BP those last 2 years? Oh, he lost his last 2 matches to two guys rated 100 or worse at the time and disgraced himself while doing so against Rosol? Good luck with THAT prediction, lol...

    Nadal has always had early round exits at Wimbledon when he's opted for Halle as the warm-up tournament. I hope this doesn't continue in 2014.

    He's gotta get past the 1st and 2nd round then he can think about the title.
