    Nadal News 2.0

    Any details on when Rafa might be in Australia? Does anyone know is there anything about being there by a certain time? Or do fully vaccinated players just fly in at normal/when it suits them if you follow me?

    Let’s not jump the gun :) Hopefully you are right though :) I suppose we have to wait and see how he responds to practice, etc. Hopefully AO will run a bit smoother this year also in January!

    Nadal about to miss his 28th masters event on HC since 2008

    Ummmm...I actually thought it was more! Thank you...

    Nadal about to miss his 28th masters event on HC since 2008

    How may slams has he missed since 2008 does anyone know??

    Kyrgios may retire!

    Never know though - he might take a year off and finally decide ‘I am going to train properly, eat properly, etc.’……Unlikely but never know!

    The ATP rankings are a sham

    I think will be all back to normal next January right??

    Nole fans, should he fight for 7th YE n1?

    True but is there really even a debate?? I'd imagine he is planning to play Paris and YEC anyway.....Can't seem him flying to California in 3 weeks....He must be exchausted and he doesn't even need to go there points wise...

    Nadal News 2.0

    Yeah I actually took a look at his results earlier today - he won 2 decent tournaments....My big disappointment was AO again....FO wasn’t too bad even though Djokovic - kind of felt he was due a loss - can’t win every time.....I don’t think he can win on HC again - too many competitors now....FO...

    Nadal News 2.0

    No doubt he will give it everything like he always does….I suppose I’m just not sure how much is left….I suppose we are all asking that question….Hopefully get some positive news on his foot in next couple of weeks…

    It's only fitting Djoker will get the slam record at the AO

    Yeah not disagreeing with any of that…I just feel anytime Nole is beaten these days kind of comes with an asterisk considering his age…I would say the exact same for Rafa…Beating Rafa on clay these days ain’t the same as beating him 10 years ago…Same applies to Nole IMO.

    Nadal News 2.0

    Yeah if I had to guess I don’t think he will but who knows :) I also think quarantine rules for Australia might play a role - again who knows what way Australia will be by then…Also I wonder is he going to take a serious look at at how many hardcourt tournaments he plays at moving towards his...

    Nadal News 2.0

    You think??? Even reading that I feel a little rush....It’s being the hardest couple of months for me tennis wise - every tournament ruined for obvious reasons...Damn I feel optimistic/hopeful again...

    Nadal News 2.0

    So AO is only just over 4 months away.....Anyone think Rafa is going?? Maybe a stupid question since nobody knows...I have renewed optimism after last night and desperate to see him play again...

    It's only fitting Djoker will get the slam record at the AO

    Agreed....Same with Nadal...Surprised Nole had this year at 34...I won’t be making any bold predictions on either player - I’ve ended up wrong too many times....Would love to see Fed and Rafa at AO but don’t see it happening...
  16. irishnadalfan1983

    It's only fitting Djoker will get the slam record at the AO

    Agreed I suppose and I’ve said the same before - age will catch Nole....However I didn’t feel the real Nole was beaten last night....The real Nole maybe back for Australia....He can’t go on forever....Only more slam before he turns 35.....I suppose I don’t know what I’m saying :)

    It's only fitting Djoker will get the slam record at the AO

    Easy, easy :) Nole is still heavy fav for AO - he needs a long, long break....Doubt he will bother with IW...
  18. irishnadalfan1983

    Does anyone have a feeling this will be the last major for Novak?

    My own belief is she will catch him…That could be 6 months away but it also could be another few years as you say…Impossible to predict…I’ve lost all belief in Z, Tsitsipas and Danil over last few months…Nole thrashed Med only 7 months ago in a slam final…

    Does anyone have a feeling this will be the last major for Novak?

    I don’t like anything you have said there…But 90% of it is correct….

    2021 US Open Final - [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [2] Daniil Medvedev

    Yeah not much chat….Feel like most feel it is inevitable and many want to avoid :( Other than Novak fans….Don’t feel like media are giving it enough coverage either…If it were someone else get the sense there would be more excitement/anticipation…I just want it to be next week and put it behind...

    Emma thanks her Chinese fans!

    Can you elaborate? How good is it? Do you think she is fluent like or what?!
  22. irishnadalfan1983

    No shade on Emma but is she a 1 slam wonder.

    Good point - you just never know....Hopefully can win more but it might also just be the one like some of the other names that someone posted...

    2021 US Open Women's Final: [Q] Emma Raducanu (GBR) vs Leylah Annie Fernandez (CAN)

    I agree! She is 19! Had no feelings on her before tonight I assure you….

    2021 US Open Women's Final: [Q] Emma Raducanu (GBR) vs Leylah Annie Fernandez (CAN)

    I was pretty immature at that age myself :) Not everyone is cool, composed, mature like Emma…Some people take a bit longer to develop/understand life a bit more shall we say…

    2021 US Open Women's Final: [Q] Emma Raducanu (GBR) vs Leylah Annie Fernandez (CAN)

    Yeah that speech was really cringe…Her response to MTO was dreadful….HOWEVER I agree - only 19 so let’s give her a break :)

    Nadal News 2.0

    Not 100% convinced he didn’t undergo surgery - not a doctor but what else could you leave you in plaster and a crutch?!? Anyway as you say hopefully something positive to come out of this :)

    Hopefully what ever is going on works….I just want this this year to end at this stage and have felt that way for quite some time :(

    Thank you…Appreciate this vital update…So he didn’t do surgery? Any ideas??!

    Daytime conditions for the final won't help Djokovic...

    Is it not always 9:00 New York time?? Where are people seeing 4:00??! Actually ignore this! I have not had my morning coffee yet! It’s always 9:00 my time!!
  30. irishnadalfan1983

    Honestly, Novak is harder to beat than ever.

    Yeah I still think he was better in 2011/2015/2016.....
