Who has the better chance of beating Nadal in the final?

Federer or Djokovic?

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

RIP TENNIS JUNE 7, 2009

Re: Who has the better chance of beating Nadal in the final?

I see their chances about equal, Roger has a much better serve, but Nole can dominate more baseline rallies because of the matchup.

Nole. He does not respect Rafa as much as Roger

Re: Who has the better chance of beating Nadal in the final?

4 years ago? Fed would have been heavy favourite against Nadal. Now? Djokovic, easily, IF he holds it together mentally.

Re: Who has the better chance of beating Nadal in the final?

Djokovic isn't good enough these days; not mentally, physically, or technically.

Federer has no hope in the face of the mighty Nadal either, it's a bad style match up for him and he's not mentally strong enough to pull it out when it matters.

Federer you know will go 5 sets at least. Djokovic, well will he even last 5 sets?

Re: Who has the better chance of beating Nadal in the final?

Djokovic has a much better chance of beating Nadal. Rafa is seriously hoping Fed comes through today.

Nadal a massive fav whoever he plays.

Re: Who has the better chance of beating Nadal in the final?

It is going to be tough for either Federer or Djokovic because Nadal will be a brick wall on the other side knowing what is in store for him (should he pull it off). I don't expect either of them to beat him in Nadal's current form.

Answer: Djokovic. Worse match-up for Rafa on HC.

Of course Rafa will be the favorite nonetheless.

Re: Who has the better chance of beating Nadal in the final?

On hardcourts, I'd give Djoko a 3:1 chance over Nadal and Fed 2:1.
I simply love Rafa to be the underdog, jeje!
