CD - I just think Nadal has to find the "eye of the tiger" again, get back to running up and down mountains. Right now he needs that more then anything, get out of his Manacor bubble. Go train with Adrian Peterson.
2011 told me all i needed to know general. he would manage to win RG in 2011 and in 2012 but his domination on clay was fading because he was letting his game and his fitness go.
nole did not beat him like a drum because he was better than nadal in 2011. he beat him because nadal kept running out of gas time and again.
and now nole would beat him on all fronts. now nole has really improved his game and he has taken his fitness higher than ever before.
so nadal has donated 3-5 slams that he could have won with a better work ethic and better focus.
now those opportunities may be gone forever.
everybody is a better player now. roger, nole, and murray are all significantly improved. nadal is lazy and complacent so he refuses to keep up the hunt.
