Re: Nadal destroys Oli Rochus

As expected. Too bad he's going to go down 0-4 to Gaudio now.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

No surprise here. Gaudio and Nadal is going to be a GREAT match.

I also thought that when seeing the draw, but after seeing the 3 matches of the kid, I´ve changed my mind. He´s on BRUTAL shape.

I haven't seen any of the matches so far, so I won't get my hopes up.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Nadal destroys Oli Rochus

I refuse. I like to be pleasantly surprised. This draw stinks. Couldn't he have another shot at Ferrero instead?

I lack direction.

Honestly, I think he´s the slightly favourite in his part of the draw to reach the finals.

You're just being nice and not trying to jinx him. If he defeats Gaudio, which is his main opponent, he's likely to give Federer real trouble, I wouldn't doubt he winning in straights sets at all. However, if he loses to Gaudio, then I think Federer is the favorite to reach the finals. Assuming he'll defeat Gasquet, which is not a lock.

BTW, I expected a tougher match from Rochus, but Nadal has been on fire these days. I don't think he has lost more than 10-15 games in this tournament so far.


Roger Federer

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc
.

Yes I know you would , but I think Nadal will take Roger, I have more doubts about Gaudio.

Rochus played well, he simply found a typhoon at the other side of the net.

No. I don't believe that I have the power to jinx somebody based on what I write on a messageboard

I'm being quite honest in my assessment. Nadal is by no means a favourite to beat Federer. I don't care what the surface is, and I don't care if he "almost" beat him a couple weeks ago. Federer is still the best player in the world, and by some margin.

You're entitled to disagree, of course. That's just how I see it

I lack direction.
