I'm thinking not. Even if you spot him the French every year, he'd still have to win 5...6...7 of the other slams; something he's only done once.

He is only 22...and clearly improvng.

Nadal strikes me as the type of player that will burn away fast especially if nagging injuries sap away his speed/quickness. Agassi was a freak, let's all just hope that Nadal CAN last close to as long as Agassi.

All of this Federer/Nadal stuff has taken attention away from Daniel Nestor. A Canadian boy has won Wimbeldon and the career grand slam!! ...in doubles. Still, impressive. He has a bright future ahead of him at the tender age of 35.

Congrats Daniel Nestor!



oh, and Vote for me ;-D

Why would we all hope that Nadal can't last close to as long? I like Nadal a lot better than Agassi - hes very humble and seems like a good person so I have no idea why your rooting agaisnt him. :-? :-t

Haven't stopped in here lately, but knew that JT would have started a thread on this.

The level of play yesterday was the best I have ever seen. There were just so many points that left me in awe, but after the first few sets it was almost like I was expecting it. Only been watching tennis (and playing) for around 8 years or so, but I have to say that Nadal - Federer was the best match I've ever seen. The Federer aces, the winners, Nadal getting to damn near every shot thrown at him and just a few reasons I say this.

Instant Classic. And, you can see it again on ESPN Classic tonight at 6 PM cst!

Yeah it was a very good match. Reminded me of Lendl/Becker match ups.

OK, figured it might be a mistake, but there was a '. Coudln't figure out why anyone wouldn't like Nadal, humility is so rare is sports today. ;-D
