Who will win: Nadal vs. Gulbis

Should be a tough match as Gulbis is playing good, plus is a hard hitter with a good serve.

However, I still think Rafa will win in 3 sets...

2 tought sets

1 easy set

Something like 7-5, 6-4, 6-2.

What do you think?

Hmmm. Well, if Gulbis can keep it together, I don't see why he couldn't take a set from Rafa.

Gulbis might take one set, if Rafa plays right-handed.

Re: Who will win: Nadal vs. Gulbis

Considering Rafa didnt play too well against Beck, today, i think Gulbis will take 2 sets from him. A little chance to win.

Re: Who will win: Nadal vs. Gulbis

If Gulbis plays extremely well he may take a set from Nadal but I think Nadal will win in three, one or two tougher sets and the other pretty easily

Re: Who will win: Nadal vs. Gulbis

A very interesting and tough match for Rafzilla already in the 2nd round.

Rafzilla should clinch it, but I will have some Vcash on Ernest.

Re: Who will win: Nadal vs. Gulbis

I think that someone will win this in 4 sets. It will most likely be Nadal, but Gulbis has game.

Re: Who will win: Nadal vs. Gulbis

On this clay, I'd say Rafa in three.
Why they make the grass looks like clay these days?

Re: Who will win: Nadal vs. Gulbis

Gulbis is too inconsistent to cause any problems to Nadal. Maybe in a couple of years.

Need ideas for a new signature...
