Recycled Post Go!

Mathieu should push Rafa around, and control a lot of things to the point of "Can he really lose this again? Yes, he can." before falling in two tight sets, or three less tight sets. Sounds about right to me.

Re: Miami R4: Paul-Henri Mathieu vs Rafael Nadal

It's hard to out-grind the world's best grinder, unless you are Ferrer...even so, I don't think PHM will get more than a set here if that much

Re: Miami R4: Paul-Henri Mathieu vs Rafael Nadal

PH has the game to beat him but won't get it done when it matters. Nadal in three.

Federer / Youzhny / Ancic / Raonic / Dancevic

Re: Miami R4: Paul-Henri Mathieu vs Rafael Nadal

Nadal in straights. Mathieu has the game to beat him when he is playing average but he is in some good form right now and the H-2-H tells the story when it comes to the big points.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

I don't even want to watch that match

You play only as good, as your opponent lets you to

Re: Miami R4: Paul-Henri Mathieu vs Rafael Nadal

I don't know what to expect anymore to be honest.

But I'm hoping that rafa will take this.
