Indian Wells 2010: Which 2 players will make the final???

Alrighty, we are now down to the final 4 players remaining in the draw.

Semis start at 12pm California time. http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2010/404/op.pdf

First semi will be [3]Nadal vs [20]Ljubicic [H2H: 5-1 Nadal http://www.atpworldtour.com/Players/...N409&oId=L360]

My pick: Nadal in 2 tight sets

Second semi will be [7]Roddick vs [6]Soderling [H2H: 2-0 Soderling, both matches in 2008, Roddick yet to win a set http://www.atpworldtour.com/Players/...R485&oId=SA49]

My pick: Roddick in 3

I think it will be Roddick vs Nadal in the final, with Nadal defending the title.

Your thoughts? Discuss.

NOLE - RAFA - ROGER - DELPO - MUZZA - TSONGA

Also supporting: Rusty, Pics, Nalby, Nando, Baggy, Kei, Isner, Blake, Kolya, Berdych, Richie, Soderling, Gil

i have a similar feeling. i believe that roddick can derail soderling in 3. he may need the help of a couple of breakers but that is where roddick gets the edge. he wins vast majority of the breakers he plays.

and then in the final, it has to be clay warrior in 3 sets. it may take him a set to start getting a decent read on roddick`s serve.

Re: Indian Wells 2010: Which 2 players will make the final???

The Lube's solid serve/forehand combo may pose problems early on in the match but Rafa's done a good job of adjusting to bad matchups this tourney thus far so I expect Rafa to dismantle WrinkleHead in a close 2 set match.

I really don't see Andy getting by Sodermug and his steroid forehand. But I'm sure I'll be laughing at some mental midgetry in that match because they both have choke habits.

Nadal v. Soderling Final.....
