Just remember, nobody who ever placed limits on Nadal's future ever got it right. Let this hardcourt winning streak be yet another lesson for everyone. The lessons will continue for years and years and years  :first-place:

that's technically wrong, i know a few people on this site who predicted Rafa wouldn't do well at Wimbledon this year, so they did put limits on him and they were correct.
Is there any chance your enthusiasm for Rafa gets you so excited that you can't actually think correctly?

But those people who predicted he'd lose in Round One of Wimbledon also predicted he'd not win Indian Wells/Montreal/Cincy/US Open. So they were wrong. How do you think they feel now about their intuitive powers? :rofl_2:

I've no idea how they'd feel, ask them. What i'm telling you is that some predicted Rafa wouldn't do well at Wimbledon and he didn't, they were correct, which directly contradicts your point about 'nobody who ever placed limits on Nadal's future ever got it right'.
And I'll ask my other question again since you've sidestepped it, does your enthusiasm for Rafa get you so excited you can't think straight?

They placed too much of a limit on Nadal's future (they didn't believe he'd dominate the American summer). They got it wrong. Dead wrong. I suspect they'll even call it a "fluke" or a one-off year and end up writing him off next year too. Predicting an early exit at Wimbledon doesn't make up for their repeated failure.

I was one of those who advised that Nadal should skip Wimbledon until they change its date to later, and I also knew he'd dominate on hardcourts, because I saw him at Indian Wells. His commitment to aggression on hardcourts is unrelenting and will carry him to many hardcourt slam titles. Only I predicted it, and only I predicted Player Of The Year.
“It is not too far way,” Toni Nadal told The Australian after Nadal collected the 13th major of his career by mowing down Novak Djokovic in an electrifying final of the US Open. “It is getting very, very close for Rafa to be level with Roger or more.”

By wildly overstating Nadal's case, and adding a little post facto justification for good measure,  you're coming across as someone so besotted with the man it causes you to say stuff that sounds ridiculous and overstated.
He's a nice guy and a great player, but i couldn't feel such passion for the guy, or any of them come to think of it, what is it you find so attractive about him?

But their limit extended past Wimbledon, therefore the limit they placed on Nadal's future was dead wrong.

You are coming across as someone who is besotted with me, and it causes you to say stuff that sounds ridiculous and overstated. I don't mind if you don't think Nadal will dominate the hardcourt slams. No problem there. The problem is if you harass me for having the an opposing viewpoint. That is where you lose.

Why is it hard for you to say what you like about Rafa that makes you so confused, it's obvious i don't sound ridiculous, i'm far too smart for that.
Maybe by talking about it, it might even help.

Yeah, 15 is pretty solid bet for Nadal.  Especially (like I said prior) if he wins the Open in the next week.

But, more then 17?? 

Damn.  That is tough to predict out that far.  So much can happen in the next few years.  Injury, new players, or even marriage or a baby.  Heck, maybe Nadal gets bored! 

It all has happened before!

Q.  Nobody knows what will happen tomorrow, but when you're seeing Hewitt playing at his age, can you imagine yourself playing at his age here in the US Open, or do you think it's very improbable?
   
RAFAEL NADAL:  How old is Lleyton?

Q.  32, 33.
   
RAFAEL NADAL:  I don't know.  I am playing with 27.  That's the only thing important today.  Nobody knows what's going to happen tomorrow.  I feel very lucky for all the things that went well in my career.  I have the chance to decide when and where.  So for a moment, I don't think about that, because my motivation is keep playing for a long time.  I don't know if three, four, five, six years.  I don't know that.  I go day by day.  Important thing is be happy.  I'm happy today.

Q. Will you tell me about how you reenergize yourself, take this motivation for extra games? Early in your career you thought you wanted to win in Wimbledon one day. At that time there was a lot of doubt. 2009 you had an injury time. 2010 you came back much stronger. Last year you missed half of the year. You came back stronger, not just physically but mentally. Do you think one of your biggest weapons is the will?

RAFAEL NADAL: When you are coming back after a hard times, after an injury, after moments that you are not well, so when you are having the chance to be back, is true to be back you need to work hard. You need to work with the right attitude every day. You need to be ready to suffer, to enjoy the suffering, and to be able to change the situation. But when you are in a low position, low situation, you are able to work and work to change that dynamic, is because you really feel the love for sport, the passion for sport. When you are back and you have the right feelings on court, then you change the dynamic. After overcoming a tough situation, then you are ready to compete better than before. That's something that I am sure. All my life I played with lot of passion. I love the sport. I love the competition. Not only tennis. I love the tennis, sure, but I love the competition in general. I love the sport like a spectator. So have a chance to go on court in big stadiums that I saw on the TV when I was a kid, always is really special for me. So I feel very lucky and very happy to be back on the tour and playing well again.

NRG, I have no clue how your last post is related to your own thread.

If you want to talk about Rafito 24/7 go to the Players forum section, Rafa has his own thread there where fans can post everything and anything about their favorite players.

blah blah blah loser rant....

Well this thread is about Federer. It only became about Nadal because others refused to talk about Federer. They are obsessed with Nadal. I'm replying to their obsession, even though I'd rather talk about Federer and whether the record-breaking event will be better if Federer is still present. In my opinion, when Federer surpassed the Sampras record, it would have been a bigger occasion if Sampras was still on tour. The unmatched drama of the record-holder trying to ward off the record-taker would be quite something. Even if they don't meet in the decisive event, just the possibility of the record-holder protecting his record is positively smashing!

Yeah, 15 is pretty solid bet for Nadal.  Especially (like I said prior) if he wins the Open in the next week.

But, more then 17?? 

Damn.  That is tough to predict out that far.  So much can happen in the next few years.  Injury, new players, or even marriage or a baby.  Heck, maybe Nadal gets bored! 

It all has happened before!

Regarding Nadal's future in the game:
"I don't know if three, four, five, six years."

Regarding Nadal's motivation level:
"All my life I played with lot of passion. I love the sport. I love the competition. Not only tennis. I love the tennis, sure, but I love the competition in general. "

And I don't have the interview with me now but more than once Nadal has said he won't even consider starting a family, until he's retired from tennis.

THis was it.  I said it before, if Rafa won this tournament it changes EVERYTHING.

His confidence is going to be through the roof and he is still as sure of a thing as a lock as there is in tennis at the french.  Hopefullly Uncle Tony lets the guy get some rest now.  Doesn't need to beat those knees anymore.  Just rest up and wait for the Aussie Open!

I remember when he won the Us Open in 2010 , I thought for sure he was going to win the 2011 AO  , but  then he got hurt in the match vs Ferrer,  so I think its just better enjoy every single win while it lasts, so his next goal should be to get that numero uno position, and then the WTF

Yeah, I am enjoying Rafa's play tremendously.  ANd you are right that it could end at any time. I just really hope they don't overdue it with him coming back and going for that #1.  I rather see a healthy, rested Nadal at #2 entering the Aussie then a tired, worn out Nadal @ #1.
