Veroniquem wasn't the only one being presumptuous, EVERYONE thought Rafa would mow through the field. Either way, losing 6-4 in the final set in the final of his first tournament in 8 months is bad, but not the end of the world. In 2009 Nadal didn't even win a set at the WTF, and got thrashed by Cilic 3 and 0, among other maulings, yet won 3 majors the year after. I love how people discount the top 4 all the time, as if they can't bounce back from tough losses.

PS, where was your humble pie, after you brashly predicted that Nadal would get stomped by Djokovic in MC, Rome, and RG last year, only to win all 3?
