Nadal has no chance in hell of ever having a 2010 season ever again. He was only 23-24 and had a clear hurdle to winning Slams because Djokovic and Murray were non-factors. Now in 2013, Nadal is attempting his umpteenth comeback at nearly 27 and this time trying to take on the new Djokovic and Murray along with a much stronger field of Del Potro, Raonic and Tsonga. Nadal is older, not better. He's going to be facing a completely different level of competition in 2013. Nadal prior to 2011 never had somebody stomp him so badly and routinely, match after match. Basically many younger players are much more confident now against this aging and injury-prone Nadal.
