If both Nadal and Federer reach the finals, that could be interesting: Nadal has won their first encounter and has not been yet "federerized" like Hewitt and Roddick.
Could he be the true rival of Fed in the coming years ?
-he's quite versatile, getting good results on hard courts
-his favourite surface is clay, which allows him to build confidence outside Fed's territory like in South America
-He's a fighter like Hewitt but attacks much more and has a lethal weapon in his forehand
-He's much steadier mentally than a Safin
-He likes big events' pressure and big crowds as we've seen in DC
-force or weakness? he can still develop areas in his game like his service
-He's highly motivated by Wimby, meaning he's ready to do whatever needs to be done to do well there
Overall we can hope a good H2H battle between the two, starting maybe by a final in Miami.
What do you think ?
