It's what he does on clay. You work hard to get level with him then he switches gear and disappears over the horizon leaving you demoralised.

His level will drop the next few games. Expect a big push at the end if the set though.

I've been there for 3 of his finals. Was unthinkable back then and he was only on 7!

Winning the same slam 12 times :lol:

Just been on google, that puts him alone for most times winning the same slam. Margaret Court has 11 Aussie Opens.

Pretty cool :thup:

Keeps me alive in my drunken bet made like 10 years ago that he’d finish with more slams than Fed!

That Australian Open final last year is a killer. :lol:

That would have ruined me. I still think Rafa has one more non-RG slam in him. And he looks like he’ll continue to win the French for the next few years at least. I think he ends up with the most slams.

He has a small chance of another US Open. The court is slow enough on Arthur Ashe that it works for his game. But not convinced that late in the season that he'll have the legs left if he plays Wimbledon, Canada and Cincinnati on the way.
