Some brief words on this Easter weekend.

Stop bitchin' and start using your non-human muscles to lift this trophy, drama queen. // Photo: Yahoo! Images

1- Nadal is MILES ahead of everyone else on clay. He recovers all the ground lost (lost?) during the first hard court swing of the year and cumulates fat for the rest of the year – another sweep would give him the sum of 5,500 points. That’s enough to be a top-5 player these days.

Nole, who’s won 24 straight matches this year, is pointed by many as Rafa’s biggest rival this year. Yes, he is. But I don’t think Novak can threat Nadal on clay. Nor him neither Federer can. In fact, I think a Nadal-Federer clash on clay this year would be sort of ugly.

Closing this one out, Ferrer, who’s probably the best clay-courter (or second best, depending on how Nole will do) can’t even scrape a set off Nadal. I’m also not feeling positive about Fed and Nole. Ferrer + Djokovic + Federer could beat him. They alone, not so sure.

2- Julia Goerges had an epic win yesterday. For some simple reasons: 1- According to reports, she played awesome, firing 38 winners. On clay and against Wozniacki, we should already tip off our hats and bow down. And Wozniacki herself is the second reason. You love or hate her, she’s dominating WTA these days. Yeah, yeah, she still lacks the Slam, but nevertheless.

Goerges also became the first German to win Stuttgart in ages, but slow down, shall we? Julia did absolutely NOTHING when she had the spotlight, back in Latin America swing. And let’s not forget Vika’s retirement – of course she could totally turn that, but…

Whatever. I’ve seen some overexcitement on Twitter yesterday and stuff. Well, maybe that’s her breakthrough win, that will pump her career. Or will change nothing. She’s NOT contending to Roland Garros yet, and an early upset would not surprise me.

Anyway, we must wait before creating huge expectations – to later be disappointed.
