Re: Rome QF WWW: Nadal vs. Berdych?

The score of Nadal's 2 matches here doesn't really share the whole story, he looks kind of vulnerable.

But then saying that Berdych looked dead for most of today's match so Nadal should routine him.

Only chance for Berdych is if he has one hell of an awesome serving day, Nadal struggles to return that serve more than a lot of the other top players.

Re: Rome QF WWW: Nadal vs. Berdych?

Will be a tough match, Berdych if on, could definitely pull the upset.

Nadal needs to be on point.

Berdych needs to pretend he's playing Federer to activate his 600% boost.

It really is one of the weirdest things in tennis.

I mean even his 2nd serve suddenly goes into God mode, how the fuck is something like that even possible?

Re: Rome QF WWW: Nadal vs. Berdych?

Nadal has been in some kinda hyper mood the last 2 or 3 times he's played Berdy

he fears Berdy's game but Berdy will flop anyway if he ever gets in a position to win - like those previous matches

Re: Rome QF WWW: Nadal vs. Berdych?

If they had met in Madrid we would have seen a bludgeoning of the spaniard. As it is, maybe a tight match with Nadal prevailing in 3.

Re: Rome QF WWW: Nadal vs. Berdych?

Rafa in 2 probably. Berdych seems tired and needs to be redlining to hit through Nadal on these courts.

I would love Tomas to get the win, but realistically he shouldn't even take a set. Like in Australia, he will need to paint corners and lines consistently (and serve well) to have any chance of hitting through Nadal on such a slow surface.

It's strange to think he lifts his game at least 6 times his usual game against Federer, rather than against Nadal. Always think it would be the opposite. Nadal's groundies sit up to his strike zones better than Fed's groundies.

But he really is something incredible when he's in 600% mode. He doesn't miss a single ball, and suddenly moves like a possessed man. Next time we see him, he might hit a 500 kph ace or something.

Berdych will probably lose in two tight sets.

Re: Rome QF WWW: Nadal vs. Berdych?

Instead of lifting his game 6x, he's gonna implode 6x the other way, which is a damn shame.
