WWW Nadal vs. Djokovic-MS Madrid Semi

Surprised there's no thread for this yet.

I think it could be an interesting match with the "fast" conditions in Madrid and Djokovic's high level of play recently. I think Nadal takes it though, probably in two.

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: WWW Nadal vs. Djokovic-MS Madrid Semi

If Nadal plays the clown crap like he did in the 2nd set against Mugdasco, don't be surprised if Djokovic takes advantage. Expecting Nadal to pull through and the Joker to fade as usual, but we'll see.

Re: WWW Nadal vs. Djokovic-MS Madrid Semi

I believe it will be as expected, Rafa in two. He cannot afford to donate any sets to Nole, considering he is playing in front of his Madrid crowd. This is Nole's third chance this year and I believe it will not be any different than before, he will loose again, because in order to win he needs to bring something different to the table; whatever he brought last two times was not enough!!!! I will give Nole credit for trying and making a match out of it!!!!!

right. And that new thing will be: Djoker will take Rafa's heavy Top spin away! Without his heavy top spin Rafa will be helpless. Djoko will mess up with him like with lil kid.

So, Djoker in straight!

Re: WWW Nadal vs. Djokovic-MS Madrid Semi

Here is the way to make money:

with bookies the ratio is: Nadal 1.11 Djokovic 6.5
And the real odds is 1:3, So bookies are 2 times overrated!! It is the opportunity to make a good money betting on Djoker.

Re: WWW Nadal vs. Djokovic-MS Madrid Semi

I voted for Djokovic to win this one, it's going to happen eventually and Rafa played liked crap in his last match. He doesn't seem to be a big fan of this tournament and with so many wins on clay already this season probably isn't fussed about going all the way here.

Re: WWW Nadal vs. Djokovic-MS Madrid Semi

Djoker is a joke. Once he finds out he's losing to Rafa, (and he will lose), he'll take his usual medical time out and claim he's suffering from some sort of ailiment,like he always does. If he wants to play with the big boys, then he needs to improve his fitness level, take his medicine and stop punking out when he's losing.

Re: WWW Nadal vs. Djokovic-MS Madrid Semi

Djoko could win this. Nadal has been subpar.

Players who make me...
:Federer - Davydenko - FitDave - Cilic
:Safin - Monfils - Non-Slam Federer.
:Nadal - Roddick - Murray
