Don't forget, though, this is only Roger's third loss of the year. It's not often people beat him. Serena has lost to lots of people over the last couple of years and almost always said something like that. And Roger has lost only to the very top players, or in the case of Gasquet, someone with such visible talent that there is no doubt he will be a top playter soon,
But today should have been more of a wake up call to him. Nadal is close to his level, certainly above his level on clay. Whether he will fair as well in the grass and hardcourt seasons is yet to be determined.
But Nadal is the fastest man on the tour, seems to have unlimied energy, and great shotmaking ability. Roger should be worried, very worried.
