Exactly what is the point of this d1ckhead return that Dolgopolov is doing? Everything is a slice. Everything, forehand and all.

Dolgopolov not playing anywhere near the standard he can.  Probably fear factor of Nadal.  Useless.  

Maybe Rublev can do the business.

So can Rublev beat his idol? Nadal

It's going to be a very interesting match. I think he will struggle with the spin as they all do at first.

However Nadal will fear that pace on both sides....

Talent and Dolgo? Not in my book, he is just someone with an odd awkward game style that is too risky to pull off consistently. He can be difficult to put away on some days but mostly he's himself on self destruction mode.

I don't call it any talent. He can't even pull up his own game.

Yup.  It can also be a medical condition.

Is anyone that loses not injured in your book?

I disagree very much. His talent is obvious. Can't reach that kind of level without Nadal's arms, measuring 5'11 without huge talent.

Nadal sweating is directly linked to energy burning. It might have a high metabolism but the thing is on court no-one sweats like him and that is not a the result of a simple "some do more than others"...but the clear result of the energy he puts on his shots and legs. That's why to me it is a clear contest of talent v Pro cause Had not Nadal got that "energy", he would stand no chance.

On this form Rublev would be lucky to get 6 games off Nadal.
I'm afraid only Federer can now stop Nadal from winning this.

I am hoping a match up (Rub's pace on both wings) might bring him a bit more games....but you might be right.

And what level is that? Just go for strange all-or-nothing make-or-brake shots on every point? Make silly slice returns though he might error himself and look like an idiot? A too forward tossed up serve when can't reach 1st serve % anything above 20% bundled with a ton of double faults?

He has a strange unconventional game which can look jaw dropping when he gets it. But this is not possible to keep up for even 2 games. Thats why you would see his service games are always a struggle.

Rub the youngest teenager in the top 100 and the only next gen to reach 1/4F since Roddick.

But as he said himself....."I am lucky".

Try to play make-or-break shots and reach top 20 which he was before getting injured. You'd have more chance to win the lottery thrice!

Well that I agree but a talent nonetheless. I don't think the game was meant to be designed for the road runners at first. It's just that they can contain and kill any talented players nowadays.

He just seems to have not tried to discipline and direct the talent. It's quite annoying to watch him attempt stupid returns that have no value even if they come off.

Especially when facing a professional like Nadal whose job is actually to test that talent by sending him hard heavy spinny balls relentlessly. In a way if you are not nearly as fit, you are kind of forced to go for those absurd risky shots. he probably controls it a bit more against the rest of the field. This is why even Federer got to such a negative H2H in the first place.

So what are your thoughts on Them v Delpo? I have not seen them play for a while.

I think Delpo shoudl have a good chance. He can hit through those sandy courts.

Or perhaps that's because he isn't playing anywhere near as well as he used to.  His ranking would suggest that.

Come on a Tenez, Delpo in full force can hit through treacle.

You can see that his ball has no oomph long before it meets the court.

I was referring to one point in particular where Delpo hit a pretty good FH...but came back.

More than the court it seems to be the ball. It does not cut through the air.
