Once more, Nadal has Murray in his half in a hardcourt major

He's had him in his half of the draw in hardcourt majors since 2008 AO, which at least partially explains why he hasn't made more hardcourt major finals since then as two of his losses have been to Murray. I'd fancy Murray's chances against Federer in every round except the final, where unfortunately he doesn't play his best due to pressure. I'd also fancy Nadal's chances against Djokovic on hardcourts considering Djokovic's recent lack of form.

Idk, Murray kinda choked at Wimby. He should've been at 4-6 7-6 6-3...

Re: Once more, Nadal has Murray in his half in a hardcourt major

I don't think either mind, both seem to like each other, and neither exactly dominates the other. All you can say is Murray has the edge on hard, while Rafa has the edge on grass and obviously dominates on clay. Both are probably happy with that semi.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

I thought it was Djokovic who was always in Nadal's half? The more things change...

Re: Once more, Nadal has Murray in his half in a hardcourt major

no excuses.
if rafa wants to win the title he has to beat the best.
if he isnt good enough to beat the likes of murray, then his legacy will be tarnished.

Re: Once more, Nadal has Murray in his half in a hardcourt major

bye bye rafa, try next year

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

he won't unless he is seriously injured. He has no reason to afraid of Murray even if Murray has more chance to win in hardcourt. Rafa's records speak for himself, there is long way before Murray can catch him

Re: Once more, Nadal has Murray in his half in a hardcourt major

This is getting annoying. This also means that Djokovic and Federer are almost always in the same half. Federer d. Djokovic in the semis of the last two US Opens. I was really hoping for a Federer-Murray and/or Djokovic-Nadal match up before the final.
