    Now that Nadal has a 4th US Open title...

    He has set himself apart from most of the other greats by winning his 7th non-clay slam. In the Open era, only 3 other players have more non-clay slams than him - Sampras, Federer and Djokovic. So, does this now dispel the notion of him being a "clay only" great?

    Chances of a Nadal v Kyrgios semi final...

    With Nadal, his form is a real question mark at the moment, but if it picks up and he gets to the semi's, it will be a real blockbuster if it's against Nick.

    Out of the following seasons, which player had the best?

    Nadal's 2013 saw him make an incredible return to the tour, winning 2 majors and 5 Masters tournaments as well as making it to the WTF final. However, can it be considered better than Novak's 2012, 2013 or 2014 seasons?

    If Nadal won the AO final would it have been his year?

    The reason I ask is, I wouldn't mind getting some insight into how much weight the slams actually have to one's season vs rankings. I'm not taking into consideration that if he'd have won his confidence would've been higher, would've won more other tournaments etc. Nope, none of that...

    Nadal vs Hewitt - who has the better backhand???

    Just wanted to see what the general consensus is regading Nadal's backhand vs Hewitt's. Who's is/was better? Are they equally as good? Personally, I think Nadal's ability to flatten it out and hit incredible passing shots as well as his consistency gives him the edge.
