    Well there's only one clay slam. If he wants to surpass Federer he'll have to win every RG from now till he's 33. Not likely with those pesky knees of his.

    My guess is the RG organizers are going to tire of him winning their tournament and put an end to it.

    Who says he won't win another slam off clay? You can't underestimate this guy.

    He hasn't won a non-clay tournament since 2010. We don't even know if he'll play any non-clay tournaments anymore. Don't forget about the knees.

    Knees? What about the knees? I don't believe he is badly injured!

    He has had a little break and will be hungry to prove himself again. True he has not won a clay title since 2010 and he has tougher competition off clay now with Djokovic and Murray but let's see how he performs in the next few months. I think he will reach Sampras' slam total at least unless he really is injured seriously in the near future.

    7 month = little break
    Chronic Knee problem = little injury

    Adds up to delusional. Keep believing

    What are you trying to say in English? That you don't think Nadal will win the FO or that he will do well in the clay season?

    Nadal will win RG. he didn't seem like he's been injured at all from the way he's played. it's as if he was just on leave and now shaking off the rust. it's a great sign.

    It was like he was on a little golf/snorkeling/fishing/poker sabbatical. Everyone needs a seven month break every once in a while.:)

    He is obviously talking about the phenomenal world class street sweeper Raffa Nadsal, who is closing in on the GOAT Fred Rogers' neighborhood sweeping records. Raffa can do this by sweeping the clay very well, so that it is all red and clean, and he will use a vacuum to finish of Fred.

    "I used to rule the world
    Seas would rise when I gave the word
    Now in the morning I sleep alone
    Sweep the streets I used to own..."

    Yep that's Raffa.

    wow i didnt knew this, nadal is a weired guy

    i think he and borg are the only clay court specialist to win non clay grand slams

    ok i did some more research http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Grand_Slam_men's_singles_champions and according to it mats wilander, ivan lendl, jim courrier and andre agassi won both french open and other slams also,

    however i dont know which one of these are clay court speciailist

    if he wasn't injured at all, why would it be so publicized and he take 7 months off? unless of course, he was on some sort of low key, involuntary leave of absence from the ATP. :) conjecture is fun!
