Round 1 Rome: Federer vs Nadal

Yep, Federer will be playing against Nadal again, in a masters series... but this time they won't be alone on court. Roger will team up with his Swiss mate Stanlislas Wawrinka, while Rafa will join his friend Carlos Moya for a first round doubles match. I guess it'll be one of the first doubles match worth watching! I just hope this two guys team up some day... Rafa asked Roger to play RG with him last year, but Roger said that he already had a couple.
Anyways, who do you think will win this match? I have to vote for Federer/Wawrinka, they both have a much better volley than Nadal/Moya, plus Rafa won't be able to play his defensive game this time, while Roger can play almost in the same way as he does in singles.

Re: Round 1 Rome: Federer vs Nadal

This is definitely a doubles match worth watching
Imagine if they do agree to partner up and play doubles this year at RG;
Nadal play at the baseline and Fed at the net, wow , totally awesome

Re: Round 1 Rome: Federer vs Nadal

They would be totally unstoppable if they ever teamed up in doubles. Would be fun to watch. Rafa running like mad in the back with Federer's great volleys in the front. Also, when they switched, Rafa's volleys aren't too shabby and Federer also plays great from the backcourt.

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

Yep, but a great match probably, with 4 quality singles players, and the #1 and #2 inside the court. You can leave aside the rivalries, scores, and records from time to time, and try to actually enjoy watching some good tennis.

Re: Round 1 Rome: Federer vs Nadal

If Federer and Nadal were partners in a doubles match they wouldn´t be unstoppable. Most of the top doubles couples would beat them. Doubles dynamics are very different from the singles matches.

What do you call moonballing? Everybody can moonball. Can you do this?
At the other end of the spectrum was the Spanish player Sergi Bruguera, who generated topspin at an incredible rate that averaged over 3300rpm, more than 3 times as much spin of Mary Jo. Bruguera's average on 8 forehands was actually 3331rpms, and included the single fastest spinning forehand we recorded, an amazing 3751rpms in a match against Marcelo Rios.

In men's pro tennis it normally takes about 1 and 1/3 seconds for the ball to travel from one playerUs racket to the other in a baseline exchange. In the case of Sergi Bruguera's forehand, this means the ball is turning over itself 70 to 80 times as it travels to his opponent!

AFAIK there are only cameras on the Centre Court, so even if they wanted tho show the match, they couldn't.

Nope, they have cameras in at least 2 courts cause I'm watching two different matches at the same time right now on two different ESPNs, and they are both live.

There are no polls on this match, and I wanted to know what the MTF thought about the possible result.
