Rafael Nadal: Rafa Must Prove He's Still a Threat off Clay with U.S. Open Win

Jul 9, 2012 Full story: BleacherReport

Rafa has had tr ouble on grass right from the 1st round at Wimbledon, 2012. Why Rafa's ? When you have shown brilliance on grass earlier ? Your absence from the better part of Wimbledon this year gave a boost to both Murray and Federer; and believe you me, he wouldn't have won if he had faced you..
And for your die-hard fans like me, Wimbledon meant nothing much this year...

Come on, Rafa, get the US, and Australian Opens now, and get back your royal place in world tennis... Please.

But please, get your service absolutely bang-on with aces none can touch...

Although I agree, he needs to be better at the US Open if he hopes to regain the No. 1 ranking. He is the king of clay, however, Roger is still the greatest of all time.
