Mario Ancic vs Rafael Nadal

here is some additional insight:

http://www.tennisinsight.com/matchid...rlo-402016.htm

once again, Nadal faces a much tougher draw than his Swiss buddy. Ancic is not going to hand Nadal this match.

it could go 3 sets. most are probably thinking that this is just a chance for Nadal to have another picnic on dirt.

anybody for Ancic in this one?

Mind-boggling, indeed.
Raf will win this match, easily. If not I'd be very, very surprised.

Nadal should play right handed just to make it more interesting

need i remind you that the poor fellow has not won a title in 10 months. they call that being a little out of confidence.

this Monte Carlo will be his toughest. mark this post now. he is not some damn machine but we are expecting him to be one.

he does have a formidable task here. i will take it one match at a time.

Exactly the same as last year, so I don't think it will have any influence for his confidence on clay.

I'm the last one to expect any a player to be a 'machine', but I do think it's quite fair to expect him to do well on the clay. That said, I agree with you that it will be a harsh task for him to defend all his points during the clay season (let alone add some points ), but I'm quite confident we'll be seeing him hold the trophy coming Sunday.

Re: Mario Ancic vs Rafael Nadal

I don't think Ancic is a good enough mover on clay, plus he depends too much on his power to win matches and power doesn't mean a whole lot against Nadal on clay.

Re: Mario Ancic vs Rafael Nadal

1.33 times the money for Nadal in straight sets, amazing odds. I have 100 dollars on Nadal in straight sets. I think I will bet 100 dollars on Nadal in straight sets for almost every match during the clay season, Nadal seems to be very underrated by gamblers.

Last year Nadal won Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Stuttgart in straight sets and lost only sets to Hewitt (tired), Davydenko and Federer.
