I fancy Nadal will beat him next round in a long three setter.

Re: Who will Murray fall to in Mardrid?

If he wasn't playing Nadal next, I would love to see him get to the final. As it stands, it's hard to predict. Murray is playing some amazing tennis, will he be at that level against Nadal? More importantly, is this US Open Nadal or Indian Wells Nadal? We'll see, should be a great match. Assuming they get there.

After that, it'll be tough, I hope to see Murray in a position to be a constant threat to Gasquet/Berdych/Djokovic.

I'd prefer Murray to win and at his best he does have what it takes to outplay Nadal here but I don't know if he can really blow him off court playing well for two sets and if he can't, in front of Madrid crowd I fancy Nadal will fight too hard to lose the big points, if Murray is to win he'll have to serve well.

That is crucial if he's to beat Nadal.

He hit him off the court for two sets in Melbourne! However there he needed to do it for three.

Re: Who will Murray fall to in Mardrid?

Murray troubled Rafa at the AO. But I think Rafa will be fresh, and fired-up infront of a home crowd. I think it'll be Rafa.

Probably Robredo, again, so as to rub salt into the wounds of so many MTF'ers.
