Re: ROME SF: WWW Nadal vs Gonzo

I bet the rest of my credits on Nadal here, this is as sure a bet as any. Rafa is going to seriously punish Gonzo's weak slices.

Re: ROME SF: WWW Nadal vs Gonzo

Nadal needs to come closer to the baseline. He seemed to be playing from 4m behind it yesterday – which turns his game into a defense. Gonzalez will go for the lethal forehand for sure so Nadal needs to adopt his attack game; otherwise this will turn into a marathon.

Re: ROME SF: WWW Nadal vs Gonzo

Gonzalez hasn't taken a set off of Nadal in over 2 years, a timespan that includes two hard court matches. If Gonzalez, a guy who relies on weapons to win, can't take a set off of Nadal on hard courts, then his chances to do anything meaningful against him on clay are quite slim.

Nadal, maybe the classic 6-2 6-3.

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

completely agree, i thought we moved away from that defensive 5m behind baseline nadal. occasionally his mind goes walkabout and forgets his new game.

Re: ROME SF: WWW Nadal vs Gonzo

^^ Nadal is always defensive on clay. It's a different game there for him than on hard courts, where he feels he has the best chance playing close to the baseline.

wat.

he is more aggressive even on clay now, like against soderling or last year's french open.

Re: ROME SF: WWW Nadal vs Gonzo

Rafael in 2 sets! Something like 6-3 6-3.
I hope he will raised his level comparing to yesterday's match! Vamos Rafa!

Rafael Nadal is the king.

1 Australian open, 4 Roland garros, 1 Wimbledon... what's next?

36 TITLES

Ce gars est juste phénoméNadal...
