Re: WWW MC QF: Nadal vs. Wawrinka

Hope this one is as good as the Madrid final in 2009. Objectively though, Wawa to win 2 games.

History to be made here?

Will Rafa shed the Borg comparisons?

Didn't watched matchs from any of them in Montecarlo.
But "Clay Death" is "not happy with the clay warrior".

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?

Re: WWW MC QF: Nadal vs. Wawrinka

Nadal would have more trouble with Almagro, but Wawrinka has a better chanse to close it out than Almagro who would just megachoke against Nadal.

I give Wawa a very close set, like 5-7 or 6-7 and then an easy set for Nadal.

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

Re: WWW MC QF: Nadal vs. Wawrinka

Wawrinka will at least win more games than Mugushkin.

This statement was very close to being the truth today so of course he won't find it to do better. He'll win 3.

Re: WWW MC QF: Nadal vs. Wawrinka

On a serious note, Nadal should win this in 2. Stan can cause him some troubles, but Nadal is likely to eventually break down his backhand.

It's hard to look past Nadal in 2, but would be great to see Stan make it at least a close match.

Re: WWW MC QF: Nadal vs. Wawrinka

Stan played well against Nadal on clay a couple of years back (think it might have been Stuttgart) and I'd imagine he'll be up for this one (more so than against Fed anyway)
