How would you rank Nadal level of play he displayed when he won RG following the years? Mine: 1) RG2008: His absolute best, winning the tournament without losing a set and crushing players like Verdasco, Almagro and even Federer in the final. He also easily beat Djokovic in straight set. He was on fire during this tournament. 2) RG2007: Another display of amazing tennis by Nadal. He only lost a set in the final to Federer when both were at their best. He also easily defeated Djokovic in the SF. He also crushed Moya in QF and easily beat Del Potro in the 1R and beat Hewitt in straight set. 3) RG2005: His first GS victory and first RG. At age 19 (at the end of the tournament), Nadal played an amazing tournament. Losing 3 sets and beating the like of Grosjean, Federer, Gasquet and Ferrer. and finally Puerta playing the tournament of his life like if he was possessed by Muster. 4)RG2006: He won the tournament and lost 3 sets too but overall he was not as good as in 2005. PHM and Hewitt gave him tough matchs and he defeated a Federer who was bleeding errors from his backhand 7-6 in the fourth. 5) RG 2010: Nadal did not lost a set during this tournament but he had an easy draw and played very average until the final where he raised his game and easily defeated Soderling for vengeance. But overall his level of play was not good eventhough it has to be noted that he never needed to raise his game. 6) RG2011: His worst level at RG (except 2009 of course) so far for me. The start was just a disaster. Losing two sets to an all serve Isner on clay. PLaying very badly against Andujar and putting an horrible display against Ljubicic, one of his worst match of his career at this tournament. For the last 3 matchs he raised his level and found back his tennis. Against Soderling, Murray and Federer he put great performance that equal his level of 2005 and 2006 but who are still inferior to his 2008 and 2007 level. His last two RG are the two last of my list. I hope he will turn that in 2012.
