Re: WWW : Nadal vs Ferrer

I guess the target for the rest of the field is to win a set from Nadal. If they do that they can be proud of their achievement. Winning two sets against him is out of the question.

Can Ferrer win a set and make it a 3h45min classic (and in the process help the field at Rome as well)? I am asking for too much

David is a fighter but this is a foregone conclusion. Rafa in 2.

Roger Federer. Legend.

Re: WWW : Nadal vs Ferrer

Well, I am coming to a conclusion that will shock everyone here. Nadal may actually win! And in two!

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Re: WWW : Nadal vs Ferrer

I just hope Ferrer keeps fighting hard without going away and makes Nadal work for the straight set victory.

PAW Singles Ranking - 396
TITLES (TMS Rome 04', Rolland Garros 04', Wimbeldon 04')
RUNNER-UP (Rosmalen 04' US Open 04')

I was told that the trophy presentation is scheduled for before the match. Could just be a rumour.

Now on a more serious line, I think Ferrer will take the title. Only that it will happen in a parallel universe made of antimatter.

Unlike last year, Ferrer won't even win a set this time.
