Who will win ATP 1000 Rome Internazionali BNL d'Italia

Does Rafa have what it takes to make possibly 3 titles in a row in 3 weeks?
Can Novak finally defend his title?

The main draw is tomorrow.

I hope Rafa can come back and reclaim his title. As he doesn't have the blisters issue, or not a debilatating one, I'd expect he'd go father than he did last year.

Re: Who will win ATP 1000 Rome Internazionali BNL d'Italia

I wonder if Rafa will ever win all three Masters Series, Barcelona, and Roland Garros in the same year. I think he *could* do it, but will he; and will it be this year?

I think he will win Rome though.

If I lose the first set, the match will be complicate, no?


My favorite Federer and Nadal quotes following their 2008 Wimbledon final:

“But right now, it’s not much of a how do you say? a feel-good thing.”
-Roger Federer
"In the last game, I didn't see nothing. The true, I wasn't see nothing, no?"
-Rafael Nadal

Re: Who will win ATP 1000 Rome Internazionali BNL d'Italia

If there is one tournament on clay Nadull is going to lose, it's Rome.

The 2005 final between him and the Clay Rat could have gone either way, Fedmug choked spectacularly in the 2006 final, and Davydenko was very close in the 2007 semis.

But the safe money is on Nadull winning again.

Schweni

Lahm

Kroos :fuck you:

he can do it but he has to be efficient to pull it off.

for instance: it took him 3 hours and 38 minutes if not a little longer to get rid of Davydenko at the Rome Masters semi in 2007.

now he had more than enough left in the tank to deal with Gonzo the day after but he cannot make a practice of playing long matches and expect to be not affected in some way.

so he not only has to be efficient in Rome but he also has to get rid of Davydenko tomorrow and his opponent in the finals here in Barcelona in a fairly efficient fashion if possible.

Rafa is favourite, in any case, but let's first see the draw.

Re: Who will win ATP 1000 Rome Internazionali BNL d'Italia

I'm going for Murray, as I actually think he's really good on clay. I'm not going to put a lot of money on him though Not after the Wawrinka incident

ANDY MURRAY

SLAMS: 3 WINS, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 12 WINS, 5 finals, 13 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
WTF: 3 semi-finals...
OTHER: Olympic gold and silver medals, Davis Cup champion...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 592-171...
TITLES: 38 and counting...
