Hello all, Let me start by saying that I respect Nadal as the best competitor in tennis today, a great sport, a humble champion and by most accounts, a nice guy. He's extremely talented and a great, great champion. That being said, I think that Nadal's domination of the sport (French Open 08-Australian Open 09) is over and I don't think it will return to the same extent. Will he win more slams? Yes. Will he be as dominant has he had been? Probably not. Will he dominate in the same way Federer did? No. The reasons, you ask? There are two main reasons. The first, sadly, is how physical Nadal's game is. If he's having such major knee problems now, I don't think he's going to hold up in the long-run. I hope he does though. Players with much less physical games have had injury prone careers. But more than that, I think Soderling and, to a lesser extent, Federer showed us (and their fellow pros) in Nadal's last two losses. The answer they gave us is to flatten out their strokes a little bit more and hit through the ball. Simple strategy, often very difficult to execute. That being said, too many players made the mistake of trying to rally with Nadal from the baseline instead of playing more aggressively. It should be a fascinating week of tennis in Montreal.
