Question Can Nadal win the whole thing?

He hasn't dropped a set yet and Roger is not playing his best. I think he has a real opportunity here.

Re: Can Nadal win the whole thing?

Well he's still there so it's possible, though I tend to think the (likely) Federer-Djokovic winner will go on to win the title.

Re: Can Nadal win the whole thing?

Well he's in the semis so I guess he has a pretty good chance......... though I have to be honest and say I sincerely hope not

Re: Can Nadal win the whole thing?

Sure he can. I don't really think he WILL, but that's not the same thing.

And that will be fine, so long as Fed wins.

Re: Can Nadal win the whole thing?

he can and he will

he's in SF has saved enough energy and he gives all his heart when he's so close to the title

a likely Djoko-Fed semi will get the winner very tired also

Re: Can Nadal win the whole thing?

he pretty much needs Djoker to beat Fed, then he will have a solid chance


even if he plays Fed in the final he at least has a remote chance if he plays like he did against Nemo, unless Fed catches fire. But it won't be a good chance unless Djoker shocks the world before Nadal gets a chance to do the same.

Re: Can Nadal win the whole thing?

I think not only he can but also he will... See what happened at wimby last year he was so close on fed's best surface so imagine on a surface that suits, IMO, more his game than fed's. I don't think he will miss that opportunity this time. Not to mention that he will be much more fresh than fed. Also, if you think of all the matchs they've played on outdoors hard courts (miami 04-05 and dubai 06), rafa has the upper hand. Remember fed always struggled against him even in the miami 05 final when he won. I think the conditions are quite similar to miami...

I'd really love fed to win again the title but I doubt he will this year.

Tsonga will annihilate the bumrooter from Mallorca.

Re: Can Nadal win the whole thing?

The consequence of a rigged draw is that the other finalist will very likely be a very strong opponent. The final is as far as the ATP maffia can bring him.

Players who make me...
:Federer - Davydenko - FitDave - Cilic
:Safin - Monfils - Non-Slam Federer.
:Nadal - Roddick - Murray

Re: Can Nadal win the whole thing?

Final is possible but I don't think he will win. I actually think he will lose to Tsonga in the semis.
