Yup even with his knee 100% and movement the best it's ever been.
haha, I hope to see this thread pop up again in the near future, Nadal on a certain decline now
Nadal had his Canas moment. Took a long sabbatical, came back to the game fully fit and confident, did very well for a few tournaments...but now things are settling....
That's usually how it works.
Yep. Nadal plays lots and lots of tennis and loses, then it's an injury. Nadal plays sparely, manages his schedule well, is free of all injuries, then it's momentum and focus that he loses.
No happy medium.
Reserving this post for when this gets bumped in 5 years time.
Come on add a little description in the OP ,murras was fun by buckethead ... running like a headless chicken hahaha
Doubt this will get close to the original but I'll add myself to first page just in case.
He got destroyed in the first set but not second set....in fact Nadal broked twice to lead....Damm let Novak back in.
This reminds of that Murray thread.... good times.
I don't even know where Nadal can build on the h2h right now. Usually, he met Djokovic a gazillion times on clay and almost never on other surfaces.
15 wins and counting. If Nadal doesn't chicken out after the FO again, Djokovic should even out this year.
Gonna just post up in here and watch for the fugkery to take place
Reserved for bump!
The continuation of the 2011 world smackdown series. :lol:
Could this be 2011 all over again? Is Rafffffaaa's confidence shot or will winning Barcelona against a depleted field be enough to rev him up again?
Djokovic now has wins at the following big events against Nadal.
Only RG and Shanghai left, I believe.
NSK - So much for Nadal and Djokovic having the same H2H as Sampras and Agassi....
Can someone post a list of all the tournaments Rafa has beaten Nole in? I want to see.
Novak will eventually even out and surpass Nadal I think. If they meet on hardcourts Djokovic should take it most times and on clay it might be 50/50 from here on out unless Nadal's form goes back up to usual.
OMG WTF. LMFAO,that is disgraceful. :lol:
No, he's playing as good as ever but can't handle the tougher competition, right JV?
Winning Barcelona means zilch.
These are the big ones
Of the smaller events I can think of
Davis Cup (clay)
I agree but it gives Ralph confidence to win on clay again.
Not to him. Look what winning those piddly tournaments in South America did for his confidence.
Interestingly Nadal actually leads Djokovic on indoor hardcourts 2 -1, I think. Yet, Djokovic has two WTF titles and Nadal has only one final.
Based on this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Djokovic–Nadal_rivalry
they're dead even with 2-2
Nadal won the 2007,2010 WTF RR matches
Djokovic beat nadal in Paris in 2009 and the WTF RR the same year
djoker played very poorly in YEC 2007 - losing to everyone , even worse than rafa in YEC 2009 ( when he lost to djoker )
in YEC 2010, it was even until 5 all in the first when djoker had some problems with his contact lenses ..
We should be able to crack the 100 page barrier when we get to Rome. 8)
Rome is gonna be a showdown!
Yes, you are right! I totally forgot that!
I know there were circumstances, I agree with you. But then you could say Nadal was being used by everyone as a door mat in 2009, when Djokovic got his two wins in. I just find it interesting they are so close in those conditions.
hahaha good one, that was what JV claimed even last year during the blue clay fiasco
Nadal vs Djok today at Monte Carlo looked so different than against everyone else this year- JMDP, Tsonga, etc. Once Nadal has control of the point there's no wrestling it away from him.
But against Djok, Nadal's topspin seemed to be strangely diminished today, didn't get up shoulder/head high, and elicited no weak backhand returns. It all seemed to be in Djok's comfort zone. His forehand DTL banana shot wasn't working as well as many other routine shots that he makes. Very strange, maybe Nadal is yet to find his 2012 confidence against Djok.
Don't think Nadal can play any better than he did today. Just not good enough that's all.
Djokovic has a back hand and he can last pretty much all it takes.
Yes I do hope to see this thread pop up again in the near future too :|
Always funny to read back threw these old posts. Since this thread was created, Rafa has won 3 of the 5 majors played. Djokovic has won the same number of majors as Bad_Knee and DropShotArtist in that time.
Nadal has now beaten Djokovic in the last 4 majors they met at. His previous record was 5.
I urge 5555 to start a thread about this..
Hahaha............uhuhhh.....as you were saying ? :twisted:
This thread just doesn't work any more.
He will start a new thread.
Have you not heard? Djokovic is the favorite for Wimbledon.
Oh! Yahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh? It was close; but Nadal pulled it out - number 9 FO titles! 14 GS tied with Sampras
You can keep the Murray got destroyed thread but this one is pure fail, especially when one has 14 slams.
Separate names with a comma.
