    Atletas muy completos, comprometidos con la actividad, traen el talento de nacimiento, pero lo acrisolan con el tiempo y el trabajo, el cual es extenuante. Además tienen una inteligencia excepcional la cual los hace reaccionar en milèsimas de segundo. Ésta jugada es un ejemplo vívido de reacción atlética, estrategia avanzada y ejecución con alto nivel psicomotriz. Eso es Rafael nadal.

    and still many people keep saying that Nadal's game is only physical, that he has no technique....hahahahahahaha

      Carlos Simancas People who say that are hard to believe, physical and no technique are not enough to win 18 Grand Slams in all the surfaces. Nadal is a legend and top 3 of all times.

    The French Open should be renamed Rafael Nadal not Roland Garros ( an Aviator )
    Or at least the Trophy be called COUPE RAFAEL NADAL
    12 Titles in any Grand Slam, but even more so a Clay Grand Slam has to be one of the TOP 3 biggest achievements of all time in any sport.
    Come on! Clay Legends like Gustavo Kuerten, Matts Wilander, Lendl, Lacoste have won it 3 times.
    Borg who is regarded as a demigod has won it 6 times.

    NADAL not only won it this ridiculous amount of times, but also during the strongest ERA in Tennis History.

      Nadal is as skilled as Federer, he just adds more physicality to his skill set to be more like the ultimate terminator T1000.

      Nadal went to the net 27 times in a pretty short four set match winning 23 points, that's 85% winning percentage ON THE CLAY, this an incredible stat, Nadal is a phenomenal net player.

      @Zubair Butt Whatever. Ask why nobody on tour likes Djokovic. If you don't get it yourself, good for me. No problem. I will stop this silliness here, luckily I'm one of many, many, many people who remembers the roof decision of last year. Very unsportsmanlike... but this is not a surprise, seeing from who was coming from. You happy with that? Fine with me. I'm celebrating, you are not. :)

    • Zubair Butt

      @stefano massaron stop blaming the conditions man.. he got very favorable conditions in France this year

    • stefano massaron

      @Zubair Butt Last year the DjokoRoof was a different animal. Only that. Usual display of lack of sportmanship by Giocovich.

    • Zubair Butt

      Lol..expect a loss before Semis unless he gets really lucky with the draw.. he is undoubtedly the King Of Clay but Grass is a different animal

      I'm so glad I'm not the only one who remembers the horrible roof scandal of last year.

  • Strat

    Next year with the roof Nadal will suffer more. I do not know if he will win but he will have it more difficult.

    • Erika Gonzalez

      Nadal is the best player in clay with wind, without wind, with humidity, without humidity, with sun, without sun, with roof and without roof. He is simply the best in clay and only the pass of the years will make it stop being the best.

    • DS
      DS Il y a 6 mois +2

      @TheFlash3237 Nadal won Sao Paulo in 2013 in an indoor conditions against David Nalbandian, a very good player in that conditions.
      And again, is about the surface not about the roof.
      If Nadal can play very well in indoor conditions on grass, like last year in Wimbledon, what does it make you think he can not win next year the French Open in indoor?
      And it is also not safe to play like this in 2020.
      It could be rescheduled until 2021.
      And Nadal can still win his favorite tournament like that.

      TheFlash3237 he’s smart to do that at his academy 😂

    • TheFlash3237

      Nadal has indoor clay courts at his academy, soI don't think so.

    نادال وفيدرر علامه فارقه في عالم التنس

  • Mihailo 'Mikel' Михаило

    Nadal keeps writing history yet again. Here are reasonable reasons as to why Rafael Nadal, the living legend, could/should be considered the Greatest Of All Time.
    1. Rafael Nadal is the only player since the open era who has won a single grandslam 12 times (!) This is unprecedented and a phenomenal achievement.
    2. Nadal has beaten Federer and Djokovic in atleast 1 grandslam final on their favorite and strongest surface, it being grass by beating Federer in that legendary final at Wimbledon and beating Djokovic (who is considered as one of the best hardcourt players ever) twice on a hardcourt grandslam final (US Open, 2010 & 2013).Both Federer and Djokovic never managed to win a grandslam final against Nadal on his favorite surface.
    3. Nadal has been more dominant on his favorite surface then Federer and Djokovic have been on their favorite surface. He has a stunning 81 consecutive match wins on clay, the longest streak since the start of the Open Era.
    4. Nadal has won the gold olympic medals both at the singles and doubles.
    Now think about the injuries Nadal had. Would he have stayed healthy during his career, he’d most likely would have surpassed Federer in all time time grandslams.

    • ShockWave
      ShockWave Il y a 6 mois +2

      He is one of the GOAT, same as Federer and Djokovic. But I still say there is no such thing as the absolute. And the injuries are part of the sport, and is actually great in the sense of leading by example. He has played through so many, even with injuries and such. I don’t care as much about whether he breaks Federer’s tallies. Just that he continues to lead by example, and inspire.

    No signs of slowing down. 15, 17 even 20 RG are feasible numbers.

    • Bjorn A'grin
      Bjorn A'grin Il y a 6 mois

      TheNewGuy very true! He has 2 Olympic. A few Davis cups... Needs one more AO... Then just play to stay healthy no one will ever get 8 French opens.. If he ended with 14 French opens OR MORE.. That's ultimate dirt dominance. PERIOD. I don't claim to know best all around player.. But get real, the closest is BORG.. So... Who looks like they can start winning this at 17 or 18 years old now? Will anyone? HOW? that would be something.

    • TheNewGuy
      TheNewGuy Il y a 6 mois +2

      he would get to 20 slams at 35 if he gets 1 per year...

    When Nadal won 6 RGs, he was named the King of Clay. Now that he's won 12 RGs and 6 other GSs, he's officially the King of Tennis and the Emperor of Clay.

      Ali Farooqi - Clay Court King would be more respectful. “King of Clay” was invented by the English speaking media because they don’t respect players that excel on clay. Clay court specialist is another term that falls into the same category.
