Tough Draw for Nadal

I am quite upset that they are making the draw unusually difficult for Nadal and so easy for Fedderer. What's up with that? I don't understand. Nadal could potentially play Gasquet in round 3. That's to soon in my inexperienced opinion.

In the end it really doesn't matter who Nadal plays. His game will be on point and will dispatch opponents very quickly. I have no doubt that Nadal will hoist that championship trophy. He will be King of the World.

Re: Tough Draw for Nadal

Look on the bright side - we can't expect them to just hand it to him. At least if he wins nobody can cry that he just got "lucky". Well, unless everybody in his half withdraws, but this is an unlikely circumstance.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Tough Draw for Nadal

Federer's draw is not easy. Take a look at Rd 2 and 3rd for him. His 4th rd and his qrts could be tough too.

Re: Tough Draw for Nadal

btw... why do I see people calling Fed's draw "easy"?

I lack direction.

Re: Tough Draw for Nadal

Same with Roger Becca. I am glad he has a few tests in the first week. They will give him the wake up call he needs and make him stronger for the 2nd week should he proceed there.

Re: Tough Draw for Nadal

The way I see it, it's the people on Rafa's path the ones that have to complain about a tough draw. He has proven he can beat just about anyone on clay, so he doesn't have to worry. Rafa is the man to beat. It's the others that need to crap on their pants, starting with Gasquet.

Who is "they," exactly? Rafa was the only ATP player who was actually at the draw - so if he has anyone to blame, it's himself?!

Re: Tough Draw for Nadal

Yeah mp3junkie, I think you are overreacting a little bit. I'd rather Coria's draw to my beloved Nadal , but it is not such a bad draw. He starts with Lars, with whom he shouldn't have problems, and then Malisse, wich is going to be tougher, but he can deal with him too (althoug after MC Malisse said that he had learned how to play Rafa ).

I don't like Gasquet in the third round at all , but there was one chance out of eight which for me was likely enough not to call it bad luck . And I think after his rest, and if he keeps up the level, he will be the favorite in that match for me.

Then Stepanek/Grosjean is not that difficult and then he would have reached the QF in a Grand Slam so Gaudio, Federer and Coria is nothing out of common on clay .

On the whole I don't think he has been lucky, but neither unlucky. Although I have to admit that with this draw for me the favorites are Coria and Federer (whom I think didn't get an easy draw either, but he is more consistent).

Anyways, good luck Nadal and, as you said, just enjoy this big tournament !!

Re: Tough Draw for Nadal

Time for him to prove he is the best on clay...no reason to bitch about the draw.

Re: Tough Draw for Nadal

Good luck Rafa Look, I know its nice to have a few easy rounds but seriously, if a player is to win, they have to beat everyone ahead, so, I am just wishing that he stays healthy.

And, yes Becs (couldn't rep you over yonder), I am a fan, since last years RG really. I really like his ass, i mean game

You make a very good point. I didn't think about it that way. Thanks!!!! That makes me a little happier.

My word, why did you have to dissect my post to the fullest? It's just a damn post. It's not a dissertation. Your Leo comment was funny though.
