Nadal will win FO without dropping a set

Discussion in 'General Pro Player Discussion' started by TheMagicianOfPrecision, Jun 5, 2012.

  1. ...I mean, I`ve never seen him this good on clay and his movement is imo better than ever before. How can one player dominate a surface for 7-8 years?

    Congratulations Nadal on GS no 11.

    Unfortunately, I can see him reach 15-16 GS.

    Normally I would think this is a jinx thread, but I've seen how Nadal has been playing, and you're right...Nadal is a lock for the French.

    Now I just hope that Fed can make a run at Wimbledon or the US Open. I think it would be awesome to have a season with 3-4 different Major winners.

    I think the better question is:

    Will Nadal win this FO without losing more than 4 games in a single set I would have to say YES.

  5. I think Federer/Delpo/Djokovic might take him to 1 breaker f they play lights out tennis-at most- but not win a set.

    Not if they play like they did so far. Novak will have to really step it up in the final if he even gets there.

    It is a jinx thread. We have no way of knowing what will happen till it happens.

    DelPo is the only guy that can take Nadal out from what we've seen so far IMO...

    Dude we are not talking about taking out Nadal. At this point we are just hoping for a tough set, not even a set loss but at least a tough set before he wins the whole thing.

    I actually agree. Still think he has very little chance to win, but more than Federer or Djokovic would have. In the event Federer makes the final with Nadal in his current form (and Federer in his), and their history on clay, it will be a repeat of 2008, maybe 4 or 5 games for Federer max.

    Yeah. Until the rest of ATP step it up Nadal can start each set with 3 games handicap and he still wins this title probably in straights.

    Come on.....the only guys who can trouble Nadal. Federer and Djokovic are playing atrociously bad.

    Nadal playing his best Clay Courting since 2008. The only person capable of at least beating Nadal in this edition of the event is Ferrer, that is if he can win the big points.

    Most likely Ferrer chokes when it gets close.

    He's giving out more bagels in fewer matches so far compared to RG 2008 as well. If he wins playing like this, it could be by far his most dominating performance ever. He looks super p*ssed, like it's finally occured to him last week that he lost 7 finals in a row last year. :D

    Of course, you never know. He might suddenly play terribly in his next few matches and lose, but that's rarely been the case with the guy.

    This probably won't look too good for Djokovic and Federer, who will most likely will have to tear at each other's hair, only to get destroyed in the final.

    The way Fed and Nadal are struggling, Nadal might as well be given the trophy already and spare other players the humiliation.

    Just thought I'd quote this so you can't simply edit it.

    Nadal has not played anyone remotely good. You cannot assess how he would fair against better players. Federer and djokovic would have produced the same numbers against Nadal's opponents. Almagro on the other hand looks very strong out there. If Nadal gives him 3 breadsticks like he did in 2008, then I will start believing this hype.

    Almagro will take a set to 64, 75 or may even take it.

    Djokovic entered the "I can't be beaten" zone when he saved these 4 match points. Nadal is doomed.

    So you're saying Nadal, in his current form, would drop a set against Ungur and go down 2 sets to love against Seppi?

    Come on, it's pretty obvious he's playing better than either Federer or Djokovic right now. That doesn't mean he's a lock to beat either one, if he reaches the final, but it's a damn good indication that the odds of that are pretty good.

    Finally...someone older than 14!
    Comparing who Nadal played so far with the "ther side" of the draw is a joke...
    Nevertheless, he is a strong favorite

    Nadal having a easy draw is good for him. A lot of wear and tear has gone through djokovic and federer. Not to mention that have to see off each other.

    By the time final arrives wonder how much would be left in them
