WWW Halle R2: [1] R. Nadal - L. Lacko

How will Rafa adjust to grass in one or two days ?

Lacko is a bad matchup for him on grass and as Lacko's fan I hope for a big upset

Nadal will play a doubles match on Wednesday and Lacko defeated qualifier in 3 sets on Tuesday. Lacko still isn't playing his best tennis after clay season (lack of selfconfidence) but played 3 matches on grass already this year.

Is this match ''NID'' or can we expect surprise ?

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Nadal has this. He will probably tank later on. Why is he playing doubles??

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

As much as I like Lacko, he ain't got no chance here, 60, 60 is the proper score.

Re: WWW Halle R2: [1] R. Nadal - L. Lacko

Lacko is too poor a player to trouble Nadal.

But I hope I am wrong and Lukas finally starts producing some good results.

Well then that's a good score line.

Lacko isn't very good on grass either, so he's going down easy here.

Re: WWW Halle R2: [1] R. Nadal - L. Lacko

He plays better on hard, that's true but grass helps his game too, lower bounces, fast.

My comment ''this is not clay'' was for GSMNadal and his statement ''GOATdal''

He's a nice player, and did give Rafa something to deal with at the AO, but he's less likely to here.

Weren't you suggesting though that 64, 64 would be the score if they met on clay, so on grass Lacko would do even better than that?

Rafa will donate a match but it won't be this one. He requires at least two matches of play. Rafa in 2.
