Nadal vs Nalbandian - Finally!!

can't believe these two have never met.

Can Nalbandian turn his season around here?

Re: Nadal vs Nalbandian - Finally!!

And both of them seem in reasonable form.

If nothing else it will be good for them to meet so all the fuss about them never playing is put behind us.

Re: Nadal vs Nalbandian - Finally!!

I'd be very disappointed if Nadal lost to Nalbandian.

I doubt he will either.

Re: Nadal vs Nalbandian - Finally!!

Hmmm... like to so much hyped-up meetings of Raf vs. Safin, I think this will be a rather mediocre match with Raf whiping Dave off court in two straight sets. Could be wrong though, but I don't really see what Dave has as weapons against an obviously in-form Nadal.
We'll see what happens.

Yeah I don't think it's going to be the greatest match but after how long it's taken for them to play each other, it will be nice to see how they do match up and to get it over with.

Re: Nadal vs Nalbandian - Finally!!

People forget how well Nalbandian is capable of playing - i guess because he hasn't shown it once this year

I was never a big fan when he was at the top but now he's not there i miss him because the tour misses a player his quality challenging Federer, Nadal and now Novak.

I just wish fatso would get back into shape because it would make such a difference.

Re: Nadal vs Nalbandian - Finally!!

dave against nadal indoors?

on paper, dave has a great shot. The surface suits his game and he will be able to dictate against nadal. We will see whether he comes to play though.

David will probably lose but I'm hoping for a good match, at least.

Re: Nadal vs Nalbandian - Finally!!

Highly unlikely Dave will bring his A game, but if he does, he's difficult to beat and will make a match out of it. His serve has improved so he should be able to get some free points. He's going to have to come to net after some of his combos to finish the point off because unlike his other opponents, Nadal won't be worked over by a one-two or one-two-three combo that Fat Dave can do so sublimely well.
