Who will win Berdych or Nadal?

Lets hear your predictions.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Re: Who will win Berdych or Nadal?

Nadal in 3, althought I will bet 200 dollars on Berdych. He has way better chanse than 10 to 1.

10 to 1 is a bit insulting. I would probably give him 3 to 1 odds.

I would five him 2 to 5 odds. Excellent oppurtunity to me to cash in my betfair acount. I will still need alot of luck. Berdych needs to be really ON and not start brainfarting anytime durin the match. Soderling match really worried me.

I wouldn't take the risk as I don't see Nadal losing unless Berdych plays beyond his best and Nadal is off.

The one thing that could work in your favour here is the history between the two players and the dislike Berdych has for Nadal. There might be a chance that this will not allow him to make another slow start and he will be more focused.

But Berdych being Berdych you never quite know on what side of the bed he will wake up in the morning

Re: Who will win Berdych or Nadal?

The progression of the head-to-head suggests that Berdych should win this match by a "6-3 6-3"-like scoreline.

2005 Bastad
Sweden Clay F Nadal 2-6 6-2 6-4
Stats

2005 ATP Masters Series Cincinnati
Ohio, USA Hard R64 Berdych 6-7(4) 6-2 7-6(3)
Stats

2006 ATP Masters Series Canada
Toronto, Canada Hard R16 Berdych 6-1 3-6 6-2
Stats

2006 ATP Masters Series Madrid
Spain Hard Q Berdych 6-3 7-6(6)
Stats

Seriously, I would back Berdych over Nadal on any surface other than clay. But especially at Monte Carlo, where the court doesn't play very fast, I don't see Berdych with good chances at all, unless the psychological edge is too big. Nadal's been playing very well and it's already been a good tournament for Berdych, considering how he arrived in Monte Carlo.

Just hope to see some needle out there, as I do enjoy tennis rivalries.

Re: Who will win Berdych or Nadal?

I'm pleading the fifth on this one for karmic purposes. Almost every prediction I make reverses itself in a bad way. I'm like kryptonite in human form.

Pulling for Rafa though, no question.

Reliable weather report please?

Hot and dry, and I give Birdman 40% chance.
Otherwise, 10% chance.

On clay?

Even on hardcourts they play close matches, so on clay at the very least it's even.
