Who will win the Rome Masters?

I am not sure if it might be a bit too early to make a thread like this but the second most prestigious claycourt tennis event starts on Sunday.

I'm going with Nadal.

Edit: Del Potro isn't playing this so, well, don't vote for him.

Delpo isn't playing Rome. I voted Rogi.

Ahh! How stupid of me. I knew he was injured and for some reason I still put him in. I also messed up the poll-closing date :S

Someone get this thread deleted and start a new one, if possible.

Re: Who will win the Rome Masters?

No way in hell is Fed winning this, I just can't wait to see which random he loses to. Will it be Julien, Marcos, Tomas, Stan (like in MC 2009)? You just never know anymore. So exciting!

I vote Rafa. Out of the people listed, the only ones I think can win are Rafa, Robin and Nole a distant third.

Ernests Gulbis. Robin Soderling. Tomas Berdych.

Del Potro ~ Tsonga ~ Simon ~ Chardy ~ Verdasco ~ Djokovic ~ Gasquet

The Federror #1 reign is over for good. The king is dead. Praise Odin!!

Fed usually gets it together for at least a few MS events during the year. I'm not fan, but I wouldn't count him out.

Saturday at noon Rome time. I'm personally hoping Rafa and Fed are in the same half, that's if Fed can even make the semis. Doubtful considering recent Masters record.

Ernests Gulbis. Robin Soderling. Tomas Berdych.

Del Potro ~ Tsonga ~ Simon ~ Chardy ~ Verdasco ~ Djokovic ~ Gasquet

Trust me, I know. But I still think he's not winning this one.

Re: Who will win the Rome Masters?

Rafa.

Doubt Muzz will make any sort of splash and Novak will probably lose to the first decent opponent he faces. Maybe Roger will do one better than last year and make the final.

Given his clay form in general though, the title is Rafa's to lose.

no way i do not think that will happen at all, it was not the case in IW/Miami, the organisers definitely want a nadal and federer final. i bet nole and rafa will be in the same half once more.

i will be really shocked if we get a rafa/fed SF!

NOLE - RAFA - ROGER - DELPO - MUZZA - TSONGA

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

Re: Who will win the Rome Masters?

roger/rafa in the same half? not good for the tournament in $$$$$ terms

BTW: Roger is looking pretty fit, the best shape I've seen since the AO 07


Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos
