R'dam semis WWW? Nadal vs Monfils

Last encounter, Monfils was the winner. Can he have a repeat?

I doubt it. Please vote.

I'll go for Rafa in 3

Re: R'dam semis WWW? Nadal vs Monfils

I think Rafa in two this time.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

he could cope with Tsonga's power but not Monfils?

Nadal comfortably, 6-4 6-2 or something.

Re: R'dam semis WWW? Nadal vs Monfils

I'm going for Rafa in 3 because 3 seems to be his "lucky" number this tournament.

Re: R'dam semis WWW? Nadal vs Monfils

If Nadal wins he will probably take it in maximum sets just like his last 5 matches

Re: R'dam semis WWW? Nadal vs Monfils

I think Rafa will come out firing to prevent a repeat of Doha and also a looming showdown with Murray won't be as fun with four three-setters beforehand, so much like he should have against Tsonga, I reckon he'll knuckle down and get this in straights, something like 7-5, 6-3.

Vamos Rafa

Exclamation Re: R'dam semis WWW? Nadal vs Monfils

Silly peoples, THE RAFA was coming back from an extended layoff when he last played Monfils Now he's coming off another Grand Slam victory. Highly different situation

Agreed. He looked quite fired-up last night during the first two games of the third set (even though that was because of Tsonga's theatrics with the umpire). That's the spirit he needs to bring to the court tonight. Enough 3-setters!

Nadal in 2

Re: R'dam semis WWW? Nadal vs Monfils

THE RAFA in 2 or 3 won't matter, Murray has no chance either way, it takes a lot more to tire THE RAFA than a few 3-setters
