(AP) The top-ranked Rafael Nadal’s last win against Novak  Djokovic was in the U.S. Open final, but since then Rafa has lost three consecutive matches to his great rival in straight sets.

“Sure it always affects (you) but I hope to (be) ready to be back and compete on clay. In Miami I didn’t play my best level in the final. I didn’t compete well enough. I wasn’t ready yet to play that match and he played great, but I didn’t push him. I’m not going to win 14 (titles in a row). There’s a start for everybody and there’s an end. I know that I’m not going to keep winning all the tournaments on clay forever and (there is) going to arrive a day when I’m not going to win one more … hopefully not yet,” Rafa said.

  1. I felt so sad when Rafa said he may not even win another one! Try your best Rafa you are still young and I’m sure you will win more not all but a few more will be good Novak is at his best and not as tired and injured as you are, no one can stop him but you are still playing and if you improve your game you can beat him

  2. Play tough mental smart. And remember whoever you play pushin to make them really play harder you really make them think about what they’re doing. Get into their mind and also beat them that way.
