    Problem is, they can't met in the first round yet, as Nadal's ranking hasn't deteriorated enough. And as Nadal is fated to get a beating from Rosol in the second round of all four slams next year, he won't be able to face Federer later on in the tournament, obviously.

    Tough luck, really.

    But then, Nadal will be the first player in world history to have lost to the same player in the second round of the four slams, a record, and what will make it even more impressive is that he will make it a calendar grand slam of second round losses. Rosol's ranking will of course turn this into another record, as Nadal will also become the first top player in world history to get beaten by a player ranked #100 and worse in all four slams in a single year.

    And of course, that will be all the opportunity needed to unleash your RAFALOSTINTHESECONDROUND2013 account on this poor, unsuspecting forum.

    Haha thats what you want, not gonna happen. Murray just withdrew from basel, so the biggest rival for federer there could be del potro and in the final. So it might be a quicky tournament for roger, and he could arrive to paris fresher than ever.

    There's a difference, of course. Sampras decided to take time away from tennis, Nadal didn't. He got "awarded" some time away, on account of his knees (officially). First break was just "the next grand slam", second one is turning out to be six months to the day (no big surprise here, although they've been playing it as if he may come back "next week" from the start), and the next one will probably last for a full year (to the day, too). Oh well...

    Fed is right even if he does the sweep Djoko would have to play below par

    Looks like Nadal doesn't have the guts to play any hard-court tournies actually, preferring to stick to the clay. Probably the only way he can preserve a decent H2H against Federer by keeping the meetings as clay-heavy as possible. Can you even imagine the beating Rafa would get if he dared play the WTF? Has Nadal ever been dealt a double bagel?

    Hit the nail on the head.

    I'm quite surprised that posters of TW fall into NSK's moronic crap (insult fully intended) time and time again, in multiple accounts.

    Ultimately though what I'm most surprised is that how these accounts survive still.
