    R. Nadal vs B. Paire - Barcelona 3rd round

    I am not saying he will Rosoled on clay, the clay field is far too weak for that. I am talking about his level at the moment. His game is in shambles at the moment (way worse than his 2011 level on clay ). You know Rafa is struggling when he hits 15-20 UEs in a single set on clay against an...

    R. Nadal vs B. Paire - Barcelona 3rd round

    This is very surprising. Rafa hasn't played one decent match since Indian Wells. After the level I saw from him in Aculpco and Indian Wells, I thought he would clean up the clay season. I am not sure what the reason is really but its very worrying.

    Nadal's dominance on clay ends in 2013

    I thinks his aggression level was fine. Problem is his forehand isn't as good as last year but he still has time. There was a point in 2nd or 3rd game at break point 30-40 on Djokovic's serve where Nadal could have gone DTL early in the rally but he only did it when he was stretched. It might...

    Nadal's dominance on clay ends in 2013

    I disagree. One of the reasons he had an upper hand against Djokovic last year was because he was aggressive, serving well and dictating unlike 2011. He needs to be more aggressive, more DTL, inside out forehands, net approaching and most importantly a better serve. 4th set RG Final was one of...

    [1] Novak Djokovic vs [3] Rafael Nadal MC FINAL

    Sure it did but lets be honest Rafa can't keep winning on clay all the time. He has started aging, declining, far more concentration lapses nowadays so losses are bound to come. Same happened with Federer on grass and HC.

    [1] Novak Djokovic vs [3] Rafael Nadal MC FINAL

    I agree with this. The way he was playing in Sao Paolo and Vina Del Mara losing sets to nobodies, had anyone told me Rafa will win MS 1000 on HC and will reach a final here, I would have gladly taken it. After 7 months of agony of not seeing Rafa play, I am just happy to see Rafa play and be...

    This is insane. Rafa has to work so hard to get the break. Djoker almost does it at will.
