David will have to raise his level significantly from where it's been this week to make it happen. Plus he's played back to back three setters. Rafa should win in straights.

Re: IW QF WWW: R. Nadal vs D. Nalbandián

I like nalbandian when he is on, but unfortunately nadal will destroy him. He better pray that nadal gets food poisoning

Re: IW QF WWW: R. Nadal vs D. Nalbandián

nalbandian is playing very well and he won't implode into unforced errors like dolgo, i think he will give nadal a masterclass in real tennis.

Re: IW QF WWW: R. Nadal vs D. Nalbandián

The question is: How many games will Nalby win? I would say 6...

Re: IW QF WWW: R. Nadal vs D. Nalbandián

Nadal will cruise to an easy victory. The surface is just perfect for Nadal's game. Slow and high bouncing. Nalbandian will have to be inch perfect, serve beautifully, and be really consistent with his ground strokes to beat Nadal, and I still don't think it'll be enough. Nadal in two.

Nadal is cruising to the title here. Only Djokovic can stop him on this kind of surface and he hasn't looked 100% this week.

The only way Nalbandian wins this match is if I put £100 on Nadal to win...

I bet the virus will play a part in this. This match won't be completed.

Re: IW QF WWW: R. Nadal vs D. Nalbandián

this could be a tricky match for nadal. hopefully we’ll get something resembling their epic ’09 encounter (for two sets at least).

nadal in three.

Re: IW QF WWW: R. Nadal vs D. Nalbandián

Shame prime Nalbandian wasn't around to dismantle him.

He's always, even in old, past it, burger eater mode, pushed him. If it wasn't for USO courts being slowed last year he'd have got one maybe two sets off him.

Probably moonpig.com in three sets.
