Re: David Ferrer vs. Rafael Nadal; who will win?

Should be an entertaining match.

Nadal is the favourite of course, but I'm curios how Ferrer will play this match tactically.

Re: David Ferrer vs. Rafael Nadal; who will win?

Nadal in straights but Ferrer will put up a reasonable fight for most of the match in all likelihood. Whilst a lot of people will come in here saying Ferrer has a big shot because he is in form and has beaten Nadal before on clay it's a different story and where Ferrer was controlling points against Nadal at the USO and TMC he will be running about 10 miles each point on clay where Nadal finds it so much easier to dominate.

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

Raf in two, no doubts about that.

Hopefully Ferrer will be able to give him a bit of a match.

Re: David Ferrer vs. Rafael Nadal; who will win?

Ferrer is a great player, just came off the Valencia win and is in fantastic form, but that doesn't mean he has a chance here.

Re: David Ferrer vs. Rafael Nadal; who will win?

I can't even begin to predict. I want Rafa to win, even though I love Pics. I really think it could go either way. Pics might be more fresh, after that total meltdown from Tipsy. He didn't really have to do much in the 2nd set. Of course that could work against him as well.

No matter the result, I'm sure the match will kill me.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

Re: David Ferrer vs. Rafael Nadal; who will win?

I'm thinking Nadal, but I also think Ferrer could possibly pull it off.

Now his hand is on your shoulder

The mallorquin.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I'd like this to be close. But Rafa will win in 2.

Nadal, first set will be competitive, second easier, he should outlast Torito
