Re: WWW IW R4 Nadal vs Dolgopolov

Come on guys, this will be a cake walk for Nadal. Nadal's winning Indian Wells this year. The courts are slower and higher bouncing than Monte Carlo, and Djokovic doesn't look 100%. It's a foregone conclusion.

If Federer makes the semis against Rafa it's going to be very ugly for poor old Roger.

First things first though, if there's anyone unpredictable, it's Dolgo. He could play out of his skin... or utter crap

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

I disagree.

Full western grip means you have the topspin to hit low balls as hard as you like, because the spin will lift the ball high over the net and still bring it down. Meaning you can be as aggressive as you like on even the most perfectly hit slice (which is a low percentage shot as a perfect slice must travel very low over the net, so the slicer will make more errors than you anyway)

Additionally full western is easier on high balls.

So Nadal is in his comfort zone hitting extremely high balls and extremely low balls and everything in between.

There is no way you can break down the Nadal forehand.
You can outpower Nadal's forehand, bring him to his knees. It is not like if he can use pace like Federer right back at whoever is bombing his forehand with flat power strokes (like Del Potro). Nadal can only defend with forehands going high up on his opponents backhand when dealing with power strokes, a predictable pattern that can look very weak against anyone in form and who is tall (Del Potro, Soderling) or have a great backhand (Murray, Djokovic, Nalbandian).

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

You must be mistaken him for Davydenko, the bald short ucranian and not the one with pony tail.

Re: WWW IW R4 Nadal vs Dolgopolov

If Funky Flo can beat Nadal, Why not Dolgo?

Well he's a break down already - 4-1 Nadal and they've only been playing 10 minutes or so! Nadal will crush Dolgo on these ultra slow high bouncing hard courts.

Flunky flo indoors has a pretty big serve and can cover the net, also he has a better and more consistant topspin backhand than Dolgo, he can jump up and hit some pretty good topspin backhands on Nadal's crosscourt forehands, he is tall while Dolgo is a dwarf in tennis terms.

It was not Mayer's slice that broke down Nadal, that much is certain.
