Bionic Poster
Nadal's been winning ATP matches (scratch that: Grand Slams!) since he was a teenager, definitely a "prodigy"

Novak was more of a normal bloomer
Yeah but Imhotep has had some crazy long streaks, and a lot of them during times where Rafa was off tour for months, it's a surprise.

Nadal used to have more matches won than Federer until they were 30 years old. Nadal can pass Lendl but may not reach Federer.
