Nadal at 50 will still be winning Roland Garros



I honestly think this will be true. I think Nadal at the later stages of his career may just play on clay and skip the rest of the year just like Fed is now cherry picking tournaments.
I actually don’t know if it’s brilliance from Nadal that he keeps winning but it is just absolute embarrassment for the rest of the tour that no one can touch him on clay.

Does this haunt you more than 40-15?

Nice piece. Good for you, Jack!

Never been a huge fan of his but if he could pull an “undertaker” and just “wake up” and only play the FO and win well into his 40s that would be great.

If he only plays big clay tournaments, he will be vacationing for 10 months a year.

The photo shows Nadal looking old but has way too much hair. I think Nadal had some type of hair transplant
a few years ago, but he is bald on top now. Hope he got a refund for the hair transplant.

I tend to agree...I think Fed and Nadal will be stuck at 20 and I think Djokovic will bypass both of them. Nadal has many long term issues including that constant tugging of his pants. I had hoped he'd one day outgrow that as young children do in kindergarten
