So Nadal blisters Federer on clay yesterday, big surprise. Clearly Nadal is headed toward all-time greatness. Even if he never wins a slam other than the French Open, his form of dominance is worthy of the "all time great" label. Federer, despite his recent slow-down, remains on pace to break Sampras' slam record. Even if Roger settles into a slow decline, we must consider that he has a reasonable chance to win the 2008 wimbledon and US Open, as well as the 2009 AO, wimbledon and USO. If he goes 3 for 5 (a fair assumption, I think) with these opportunities, he breaks Sampras' record. When Nadal first came on the scene, I couldn't stand him, mostly because I am not a fan of his type of game. But as time has gone on and his dominance on clay has grown, I have learned to appreciate his game as well as his off-the-court demeanor. He seems like a genuinely nice guy, he's a killer competitor, and he respects the game and his opponents. What's not to like?
