I think Nadal is playing the best clay tennis of his career right now.

Djokovic will be lucky to take a set

Nadal 6-3 6-2 6-3

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Nadal obviously. He is extremely focussed at the moment and I can't see how Djokovic can beat him (ultimate jinx - hope not).

Re: RG08 SF WWW: Rafael Nadal(2) vs. Novak Djokovic(3)

nole will retire at the beginning of the 3 set after losing the first two, and will say he was the dominating player

Re: RG08 SF WWW: Rafael Nadal(2) vs. Novak Djokovic(3)

It's been embarrassingly easy for Nadal so far. I hope we at least get a good, close match in the semis, even if Nadal still takes it in 3 tight sets.

Nadal in whatever score he wants it to be.

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".

Re: RG08 SF WWW: Rafael Nadal(2) vs. Novak Djokovic(3)

Nadal is so motivated, he's crushing on everyone, he WANTS this 4th title, he's very confident, it's HIS tournament... Normally(yes, because Novak showed at Hamburg that he can took a set) he should win, and moreover the clay at RG is different from Hamburg. He will win. I wish in three sets... maybe 4 because Novak is improving comparing to last year, but Nadal should win. VAMOS RAFAEL !!

Rafael Nadal is the king.

1 Australian open, 4 Roland garros, 1 Wimbledon... what's next?

36 TITLES

Ce gars est juste phénoméNadal...

Re: RG08 SF WWW: Rafael Nadal(2) vs. Novak Djokovic(3)

Nadal seems to be in god mode so I don't see how Djokovic will be able to beat him. He will do better than Almugro and Verdasco though.

Amazingly expected semifinal. This tournament is boring as hell. I'd like to see a 5-setter but in view of Nadal's performance this year in Paris, D'Joke will be lucky if he wins one set 7-5 or 7-6.
