Djokovic vs Nadal by Jessica Pare
Only a quarter-final cause the bad position ranking that Nadal currently holds for a season that has not seen the Spanish champion not dominate even on his favorite surface but said that there is no doubt also for one of the greatest of all time on clay court, Björn Borg, that none of the players currently in activity have the numbers of 9-time champion at Roland Garros, Rafa Nadal!
Djokovic continues to dominate the scene this season and in past tournaments for him only a champagne cork in the tournament in Rome has stumped the great serbian who come to this slam as favourite for the first time!
Despite what are the statistics of Djokovic on clay court this year and in general with his great results, I see always the undisputed favourite as Rafa Nadal in this slam, who can feel sensation that can led him to go beyond himself also in this difficult moment!
The Roland Garros for some players is not a simple slam this year but a real redemption for a disappointing season so far, is for example the case of Tsonga that in this RG has eliminated before Berdych and then Nishikori and I think for Nadal the same rule applies except that Nadal is not just a tennis player, but a champion who plays in Paris as if he were at home, and not last for his reputation in France that consecrated him as the strongest tennis player of all time on clay court!
Lets go fo Rafa!!
