And I know huntingyou posted something but I have yet to read it. I just scrolled down not out of disrespect however; it's just that I am not in the same mood as yesterday. Don't be surprised if you find me responding three days later, but now that we are into keeping things in order, that's highly unlikely. Just saying that that's the way I am. I have to find some time and the right mood to talk about it and until I do so, I just tend to talk about something else.
Alrighty then, onto AO. I say Nole will win it all. You may quote me later!
Don't worry about it...as far as I'm concern, that topic is impossible to reach a happy middle.
I won't Novak winning the AO as well.......he is my first pick to win it followed by Rafa and Roger.
depending on the draw and a little bittle of luck, serbian slayer should be in the finals. if its the clay monster on the other side of the net, he is going down.
if its Fed or Murray on the other side of the net, serbian slayer will shine and defend his title. that should narrow it down.
Ain't happening. First of all, he should be so lucky to even make that far. Even if he does, my boy will take your boy out. Remember a red hot Murray at the Open? Nole will be no different but he will also have to make the final first but once he does, there's no stopping.
Luck has nothing to do with it......if it happens he earn it.
why kind of BS is that? Already downgrading a possible Rafa AO victory or finals by calling him lucky?
Yes he is lucky that he has a 27-11 H2H vs Roger, Novak and Murray.....................anything to say about that 27-11 number? Rafa can beat anybody in any surface and that should be clear by now!
of course its "BS". its these kind of people who were also quick to write him off on grass as well. surely they have learned their lesson by now.
i am taking his recent injuries into account and will suggest that quarters or semis is a great start as long as he escapes without any injuries. he has to stay healthy. health, fitness, and the health of those knees before anything else.
clay and grass wont be any problem he will take what belongs to him. and then there are points to picked up at masters cup at the end of the year if needed.
keep in mind that he will be piling up points in Rome as well as Madrid masters. Madrid is on clay.
finally, the schedule is more forgiving in 2009. no olympics and that davis cup against serbia is at home on clay. the more he stays on clay the better he will be.
#1 rank for 2009 is in the bag if he just uses his brains a little and approaches the new year very strategically.
