Toronto SF: Nadal vs. Murray - WWW?

Murray played close matches with Nadal on hard courts but could never close out the deal.


Will he do it tomorrow?

Toronto SF: Murray vs. Nadal - WWW?

now is the time to shine, andy. you've taken him to five sets, you know how to beat him, you're capable of outsmarting him.

i'm fairly sure we're gonna see another lopsided poll which will be a good sign once again.

not a fan of murray though but i'm getting a bit tired of rafa these days.

Re: Toronto SF: Nadal vs. Murray - WWW?

Murray's best shot at (prob only) of beating Nadal is on hard. I think he can win tomorrow if he plays as aggressive tomorrow as he did today. Nadal will put up more of a fight than Djokovic did, however. So it will be interesting to see how Murray handles that because he really kept it together today. Having said all that, I'd still bet on Nadal. He's here to prove he is #1.

Murray will probably take a set and then like Gasquet lay down for his master.

If Murray has any balls or potential he will steamroll Nadal. Now or never for him.

Re: Toronto SF: Nadal vs. Murray - WWW?

Going for Murray, but Nadal is even more of a mental barrier for him than Djokovic. Murray worships Nadal and that, in my opinion, has cost him in their other 2 hard court matches.

I think that may play a part too. Murray was absolutely gushing over Nadal after the Wimby QF. He sounded like he thought it was impossible to beat Nadal. I hope he comes to play and makes it a competitive match.

Re: Toronto SF: Nadal vs. Murray - WWW?

Rafa in 2. Djokovic played pretty badly today and Andy had some difficulty closing it out. He was agressive and played well but at times he was still too passive. I mean it was OK, he was playing superb defense, but there were a lot of points were Murray was just pushing and Novak would just miss an easy shot. Rafa is not going to do that. Also, it will be harder to play offense against Nadal. He has to play agressively on every point to stand a chance.

Re: Toronto SF: Nadal vs. Murray - WWW?

Interesting match. I happen to like both players, and Muzza has surely surprised me in the most possible manner today... but in the end, this is going to be Raf's I think.

Good luck to both, please make it an enjoyable match!
