Talking Quick poll: will Rafzilla come back from 0-2 down?

I have a feeling he will. Murray can't keep it together and could choke it away.
What do you think? Who will benefit more from the rain delay?

It´s 2-6, 6-7, 3-2 with break of serve!

Mods don't kill me, it's not livescoring.

Yes.

Nadal mental toughness and experience will count.

Re: Quick poll: will Rafzilla come back from 0-2 down?

You make it sound so easy--Nadal just got his first break chance, and Murray's still been the better returner. Also, rain may affect the momentum.



I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.

Whatever happens now, that's probably it for the day. A disgrace that Federer gets such an advantage.

Murray has been the better player by miles. Rafa was lucky to get to a tiebreak.

Re: Quick poll: will Rafzilla come back from 0-2 down?

Just for the mods, this is now a totaly legitimate poll, because the play will probably resume tommorrow.

I was counting on rain delay, when opening this thread.

Re: Quick poll: will Rafzilla come back from 0-2 down?

Obviously he very much CAN, but I'm willing to stick my neck out and suggest that he WON'T. I think it is perhaps a little more beneficial for him if the match could be completed today, as there is a chance that Murray just runs out of gas. If play is suspended to tomorrow, obviously Rafa could regroup, but with a little bit of fine-tuning of tactics (to ensure that he keeps Rafa guessing), what's to say that Muzza doesn't start like an express train again?
