Fascinating Rotterdam for NADAL

Difficult draw for Nadal: potentially many hard court specialists in his way.

To reach the final: Bolelli > Berdych > Tsonga > Davydenko or Monfils > Simon or Murray

The tournament attracted some strong field, so curious to see how Nadal faces them indoors!

Yeah because it's going to be Simon or Murray. Hopefully Murray wipes the floor with him although this is a slow court so I'm not expecting anything. Plus Murray will probably tank his first round to go to Dubai.

Re: Fascinating Rotterdam for NADAL

Nadal is on a high, only Murray on form can challenge him. Simon is a headcase.

Roger Federer. Legend.

Re: Fascinating Rotterdam for NADAL

not as tough as it looks
Tsonga might withdraw and Davydenko won't be a threat (yet)

Tsonga on form will beat nadal, as will davydenko but he is out of match practice.

Rafa is gonna be knackered by the time he plays the French Open. He should have withdrawed from the tournament. He is playing Dubai after this isn't he. Then there's a bunch of clay court tournaments that he's playing. Then French Open. It's going to be tough for him through this time of year if he plays what he played last year.

Re: Fascinating Rotterdam for NADAL

Berdych can take him out on indoor, anyway maybe the surface will not be very fast and i remember Krajicek saying he'd put balls which suit Nadals game..
