why don't the 2 of you calm down before you hurt yourselves?
where the hell does it say that this thread has anything to do with monte carlo?
nole is good on clay but he is not that good. its just that nadal is pathetic at the moment.
I am not giving nole the RG this year because it is not going to happen. more than likely nadal will find a way to get into the final there and then make it happen. we have always known that nadal is vulnerable in the best of 3 sets foremats. also did anybody expect nadal to win 10 straight monte carlo titles? or even 9? I did not. I knew he was going to lose this one. nole was prepared and focused while nadal was not. so he paid the price.
a little help is always welcome from nadal`s own standpoint at RG. I am sure he would like somebody to push nole to 5 sets in the semis there.
anyway nole is going to be able to make his maximum headway on the hard courts. there are no less than 2 hard court slams a year on the hard courts.
can you imagine how many slams nadal would be sitting on had there been 2 clay slams a year?
so nole has the great advantage. he can really rack them up on the quicker courts in the next 3-4 years.
