holy crap he did it!
Nadal won't win another GS besides French Open so he will need to win the French Open at the age of 35 in two years to equal Roger's record. I think Djokovic has a much better chance to surpass Federer.Good good, prob. thiem is gonna give nadal less trouble than djoker in the final. The short time off won't help thiem against nadal either. I want a crushing win from rafa also this is gonna be his 18th grand slam victory if he wins tomorrow! So only 2 more and he equals roger's record :D
Djoker is the only reason Nadal didn't win AO 2019 and Wimbledon 2018.
We don't know if he won't win another, Djokovic can always lose before the final in any of the other grand slams and nadal just recently went into the final of the AO 2019. So he still has a good chance of winning the AO or the US Open if not the wimby.
Nadal reached the semis of all the slams last year and obviously two finals this year so far.
wait. they'll change that stupid rule at Wimbledon this year? as in, they'll open the roof even if the match was started with closed roof?Nadal reached the semis of all the slams last year and obviously two finals this year so far.
The only thing holding him back are his knees and Djokovic is a problem for him on other surfaces. He was sort of unlucky at Wimbledon though last as they changed the rules this year regarding the roof. If the roof was open as it was a sunny day he probably would have beaten Djokovic in the semi and Anderson who had just played a long match would have been easy pickings for him.
His knees seem to give away because his hard court record in the past year or so isn’t bad. He reaches the semi or final of every event besides his loss to Kyrgios which he lost two sets in tie breaks when he really had it in his control.
Djokovics issue is if he mentally just gives up again. He has dominant spells and then he has spells where he just doesn’t want to be on a tennis court. I wouldn’t rule out Fed getting another slam though. He just reached semis of a slam he hasn’t played in years and lost to the best player that’s ever played it. If he’s healthy then he has a good chance at Wimbledon. Let’s not forget he also threw it away against Anderson last year. He was two sets up and 9/10 times he wins that match.
thank god. what a dumb rule it was.
Yeah as long as it’s not raining obviously.
Nadal improved. Thiem sort of choked his service game after he broke. He then reverted back to his tactics from last year after that by going for it more. But obviously physically he would be shattered if he kept that defensive play up especially after playing Novak yesterday
