Verdasco has been in terrific form since St. Petersburg '08. Has won 13 out of last 17 matches (including Spanish championships and exho in Kooyong) and lost those 4 matches to Murray (twice), Federer and... Stepanek.
They will be playing tomorrow on Show Court 2. IMO it sucks, should be scheduled at Hisense Arena instead of Monfils vs Almagro Nando and Sexy are showmen, they deserve to play in fron of the bigger audience.
Stepanek leads 3-0 in their H2H. Here is the best part of their final in Brisbane this year
stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
So kids, what have we learned from this? Being dumped by a virgin puts you in the driver seat to win AO. I can see Verdasco now in the press conference after clinching the title: still want some other hot guy?
Sexy is a bad matchup for Nando...it's clear from their H2H.
Sexy in 4 or 5.
But I hope Nando wins, because he is so watchable, dangerous and can cause some serious upsets. Well, so can Sexy who already has Fed's scalp.
I will rather stop talking nonsense here. Let the best man win.

Verdasco will win due to 3 reasons
1 - He has been in excellent form as mentioned
2 - He has a lot more energy than stepanek based on court time and the fact that he has easily won his two previous matches
3 - The main courts suit his game more than stepaneks based on his forehand and the fact that if struck well it is almost unreturable on these fast courts
