Hey, all you tennis scholars, well, all two of you . . . uh, well, Mustard, what kind of noise do you think Nadal would have made during his lost clay season of '04? What a shame. He took MC, Rome, and RG the next year as an eighteen year old (nineteen on the day of the RG semi), but what do you think he would have done as seventeen year old? He had already beaten Costa and Moya as a sixteen year old in MC and Hamburg respectively in '03. Speaking of that--why didn't he play Hamburg in '05? And does anyone know if Nadal tried to qualify for RG as a sixteen year old in '03? One would think so considering he beat the defending champion the month before in MC (Costa in straight sets).
