AO 1/2 : Tsonga - Nadal, who will win ?

Tsonga is quite impressive here since he beat three talented outsiders (Murray, Gasquet, Youzhny).
Nadal had got a cakewalk-draw as good as (if not better) the one he got in Wimbledon 2006. But this time he has not lost a set yet.
I was sure Baghdatis would beat him in semi there and i was wrong. If i had to put money on this match i'd pick Nadal in three or four sets but with an easy end of match.

H2H: Nadal 1/0
US Open 2007: 7/6 6/2 6/1
Easy match for Nadal, the first set could have been even easier. Too easy for Rafa in the last two sets, Tsonga being obviously exhausted.


Tsonga
R128: def. Murray 7/5 6/4 0/6 7/6
R64: def. Warburg 6/4 7/6 6/2
R32: def Garcia Lopez 6/3 6/4 6/2
R16: def Gasquet 6/2 6/7 7/6 6/3
1/4: def Youzhny 7/5 6/0 7/6

Nadal
R128: def Troicky 7/6 7/5 6/1
R64: def Serra 6/0 6/2 6/2
R32: def Simon 7/5 6/2 6/3
R16: def Mathieu 6/4 3/0
1/4: def Nieminen 7/5 6/3 6/1

Rafa = French Killa in this Aussie Open.

This is going to be hugely tough though. Hopefully Rafa's experience will be enough to see him through, but if Tsonga brings his A game to the court I think he'll win.

Re: AO 1/2 : Tsonga - Nadal, who will win ?

Nadal will win solely on the fact Tsonga hits too many errors, which is good enough against most people as he hits about the same amount of winners, but the junkballing machine will return alot more, resulting in more errors.

Hopefully Tsonga, Nadal in final would only show how bad all these players are

LIKE: Stepanek, Youzhny, Stakhovsky, Raonic, Pouille || HATE: Nadal, Almagro, Monfils, Troicki, Simon, Tipsarevic

Nadal in 3 or 4. He's a better retriever, his topspin will not enable Tsonga to swing freely, and let's not forget the occasion and experience factor.

Its not clay, the topspin doesn't really have much effect, this match is Tsongas to lose depending on whether he controls his UE's & emotions, which intertwine with each other.

Nadal will toy with another Frenchie en route to the finals... How predictable...

Re: AO 1/2 : Tsonga - Nadal, who will win ?

nadal will take this one in in 3 sets, with the first one being close and the second and third rather freebies.

7-6, 6-4, 6-2
