I asked former world nº1 YevgenyKafelnikov: «are you a Federist or Nadalian?» «Nadalian; Rafa the best thing that happened to men's tennis»
«Nadal much more charismatic than Federer, brings much more energy to the public & will win more...
Murray is a total conundrum for Rafa at the HC slams. He either beats Rafa or leaves him lame for the next match(AO 2007 for example). Rafa's wins at AO and USO was when someone beat Murray before the SF.
Probably. But he will only regain the #1 for a few weeks.
Well. If he gets a very lucky draw at a slam and plays the likes of Denko and Tsonga in slam QF and SF and scared Murray in the finals, like the last time he won the AO, then yes he can win a slam.
This is not good. Same as with Soderling in slam finals. And same as the likes of Pioline and Mecir in slam finals.:-? Has anyone ever lost his first 2 slam finals in straights and eventually won a slam?
