This has been my theory for a while. I started thinking this in 2009 when he lost early in Paris. Sure he would have been devastated, & he came back and dominated those 6 months or so again in 2010, but since becoming THE Nadal in 2005, 2009 was the only year he was able to celebrate his birthday properly. That's a real sacrifice for a young man to make.

Amongst other things of course.

He must beat Laver in Mortal Kombat. Finish HIM!
