    Can Roger still do it?

    What makes you think Nadal will not win majors other than French? Especially US open which he won two times in his last three attempts. Or Wimbledon which he reached the semifinals on the last two occasions and came horribly close in one of them. Or Australian open where he reached the finals...

    What saddens me about Federer...

    Please do not forget the fact that Rafa reached the semi finals of Wimbledon on the last two occasions and was very close to winning the title in 2018 (He was extremely close to beating Novak in Semifinal and would have definitely beaten Anderson in potential final).

    Rafael Nadal vs Lewis Hamilton - Who is the greater champion?

    In my opinion, Nadal is many times greater champion then Federer. He is clearly far above any body else in Tennis. Similarly Hamilton is many times greater champion than Schumacher. He is clearly far above any body else in Formula1. This is evidenced by their unparalleled records which they are...

    Rafael Nadal vs Lewis Hamilton - Who is the greater champion?

    Had Rafael Nadal took up Formula 1 instead of Tennis, would he be able to beat Lewis Hamilton? Had Lewis Hamilton took up Tennis instead of Formula 1, would he be able to beat Rafael Nadal? I personally feel that Rafael Nadal and Lewis Hamilton are the two greatest sports champions of all time...

    Nadal always had this psychological advantage over Federer and Djokovic

    But after 2011, I feel that Novak is overrated. For example, even now many people consider him as the clear favorite in almost every hard court tournament even though he has clearly struggled to maintain his consistency over the last few years even on his best surface. Also many people consider...

    Nadal always had this psychological advantage over Federer and Djokovic

    According to me, there is a clear reason why Nadal does not like to be considered as the favorite and why he always projects himself as an underdog and always over complements his rivals (Federer and Djokovic). It is because it takes away the pressure from him and shifts the pressure and burden...

    Nadal always had this psychological advantage over Federer and Djokovic

    I am saying that being considered as an underdog gives a huge (unfair) psychological advantage to Nadal and putting his rivals at a big disadvantage since all the pressure is on his rivals while Nadal is free of any pressure and expectations. By giving Nadal the role of an underdog, people are...

    Nadal always had this psychological advantage over Federer and Djokovic

    Also Nadal was not just beginning to break out at that time. He was already the best clay court player by 2005 French Open when that match happened. Nadal had won the Monte Carlo Masters, Barcelona Open and Rome Masters in that year and was in great form entering that slam and was looking like a...

    Nadal always had this psychological advantage over Federer and Djokovic

    Suppose if most people considered Nadal as the favorite in 2005 French Open Semifinal and had heavy expectations on him, would that match still have taken the same course with exactly the same result? Does the psychological factor or pressure of expectations not have any impact on the outcome of...

    Nadal always had this psychological advantage over Federer and Djokovic

    Actually even now, what I observe is that most of the people assume that Djokovic is a sure bet to beat Nadal in a potential Australian Open final (just based on 2019 final score) even though Nadal himself is a great hard court player and has won a lot of big hard court titles (beating Djokovic...

    Nadal always had this psychological advantage over Federer and Djokovic

    What I want to say is that Nadal was not under any pressure in most of the slams since people always considered him as a less talented underdog (who only wins by hard work and practice rather than talent) and therefore people never had huge expectations on him. Thus Nadal had the privilege of...

    Nadal always had this psychological advantage over Federer and Djokovic

    Right from the beginning, people always under estimated Nadal's ability and potential. Almost everybody predicted that his career will be very short because of his physically taxing style of play. People always had very less expectations on him (many people predicted that Nadal would just be...

    I wish Djokovic and his fans do not become over confident on account of sunday's victory over Nadal.

    One of the main reasons why Djokovic managed to defeat Nadal on Sunday in the ATP cup final was that Nadal was extremely tired from playing too many singles and doubles matches last week in the follow up to that final and Nadal's energy level was very low. In spite of that, the second set was...

    I wish Nadal is more friendly, jovial and humurous rather than being very shy and always focussed on his career.

    Unfortunately I am not able to play the video. I get the following error: The media could not be played. But anyway, I like Nadal in the photos that I saw in that website. I find him to be quite friendly and cheerful in those photos and I wish he is always like that. Also I wish Nadal is nice...

    I wish Nadal is more friendly, jovial and humurous rather than being very shy and always focussed on his career.

    I am not able to find the photo of Nadal with that animal that was posted by you, in the above link. But I saw the photo of Nadal relaxing in beach along with his team mates. In that photo, I actually like Nadal since he is very casual and relaxed. I wish Nadal is always relaxed and friendly...

    I wish Nadal is more friendly, jovial and humurous rather than being very shy and always focussed on his career.

    Is this a real photo? Or is it photoshopped? I will be happy if the above photo is a real one and Nadal is really friendly and compassionate towards animals and towards less accomplished human beings. But then why did he say in that interview that he does not like animals especially dogs and...

    I wish Nadal is more friendly, jovial and humurous rather than being very shy and always focussed on his career.

    I feel that competition is an evil. It differentiates people as winners and losers which leads to disappointment and depression. I tell this from my own personal experience. I would really love it when the international sports are more fun oriented without any winner or loser or champions or...

    I wish Nadal is more friendly, jovial and humurous rather than being very shy and always focussed on his career.

    But Nadal can still choose to be less competitive and be more relaxed if he really wants to. He has already had an extraordinarily great career with lots of accomplishments. Why is he still hungry to win more and more titles? Why is he still working so hard on his game? When will he become...

    I wish Nadal is more friendly, jovial and humurous rather than being very shy and always focussed on his career.

    Sorry. I feel the exact opposite. I find Nadal's personality as extremely unfriendly and intimidating. I feel that Nadal perfectly epitomizes this selfish, materialistic and competitive world.

    I enjoyed this video very much. The song was very pleasant to hear. Thanks a lot for sharing.

    I wish Nadal is more friendly, jovial and humurous rather than being very shy and always focussed on his career.

    Is Nadal equally compassionate towards animals also? Why was he not friendly with the dog that turned up on the tennis court that day? imagine a scenario where Nadal accidently drives his car over a dog and nobody is around to help that dog, will he take pity on that helpless injured animal and...

    I wish Nadal is more friendly, jovial and humurous rather than being very shy and always focussed on his career.

    No. I am not trolling anybody. I just expressed my honest views based on the experience of my own senses and I cannot understand why people think the other way around.

    I wish Nadal is more friendly, jovial and humurous rather than being very shy and always focussed on his career.

    I honestly feel that accomplishment wise and ability wise, Nadal is very much superior to both Federer and Djokovic. By accomplishment, I mean their respective likely accomplishments when they choose to retire from tennis. Federer has won 20 slams and I do not see him winning any more big...

    I wish Nadal is more friendly, jovial and humurous rather than being very shy and always focussed on his career.

    I personally do not mind even if Nadal refuses to sign autographs stating that he has no time. I only wish he is casual, friendly and compassionate towards me as opposed to being very serious and fiercely competitive. I will be happy if Nadal is humorous and funny with me and tries to joke and...

    I wish Nadal is more friendly, jovial and humurous rather than being very shy and always focussed on his career.

    Yes. I agree that Djokovic is a bit short tempered and impulsive. But at the same time, he is also very friendly, generous and kind hearted. He may get mad at times when things are not going well for him on a tennis court but he is a very casual, relaxed, cheerful and jolly person otherwise. The...

    I wish Nadal is more friendly, jovial and humurous rather than being very shy and always focussed on his career.

    Yes. I actually feel that Federer is a very relaxed and jolly type of person even though he may be very careless and over confident at times. He is not always obsessed with winning like Nadal. He does not take his career too seriously like Nadal. Federer is a very easy going and jovial type of...
