    Because; (don't you know) Nadal can only lose when he's tired

    in 2006 he was "tired" 12 times

    in 2007 he was "tired" 15 times!

    in 2008 he was "tired" 11 times

    this year, even though its only may, Rafa has been "tired" 4 times already!!!!

    he really needs to get off Nalbandian's diet, because Rafa must be so out of shape to get tired

    we all know that he can't lose unless he's very tired, so does Rafa need a trainer, because he's getting tired an awful lot

    :roll:

    I agree. I thought Nadal was the fittest on tour. He shouldn't be "tired" so often.

    And i'd just like to add

    No one said Roger lost RG in 2008 because he was tired

    or that he lost the dubai 06 final (one of Rafa's greatest wins over Rog considering the year) because he was tired

    His game just requires a tremendous amount of physical effort.

    Which is why he will be tiered after long matches because he needs to keep his game at a high level through out every single point.

    Imagine trying to play his game?
    his big muscles are a must for his game.

    He is pretty much a backboard from the baseline, and pounces on anything that is in his strike zone.

    LOL

    this guy has played the exact same type of game his whole tennis career. sure he's made adjustments here and there, but he's still a counter punching machine. the "he gets tired" excuse is getting old buddy.
