No it was my bad- I was preparing the thread as Nadal was serving for the match and shot the gun by accidently pressing 'submit'.

It is official now though

Why call them Piggy and Rumpelstiltskin?

Unfair to Rafa, and unfair to Rumpelstiltskin!

Re: Piggy vs. Rumplestiltskin who will win?

it's gonna be tough for Rafa. Radek is playing good tennis at the moment, and last time they played each other Radek took a set from Rafa and it was on clay...

however I still think Rafa is gonna win this, he played such a solid tennis against Tommy today... vamos Rafa!

I say Nadal 6-3 7-6

You'd better get used to RonE calling Rafa Piggy, he's not budging!
Voted Rafa, I hope he can pull it off but I don't know how well he's been playing thanks to Eurosport only showing WTA.
BTW, why Rumplestiltskin

I think Nadal will win, but I hope I'm wrong.

Rumplestiltskin popped into my head last year when Stepanek was playing the Paris Indoor Masters. It's the comical facial expressions that one would associate with mythical characters and and if you say 'Radek Stepanek' many times very fast over and over again it does sound a little bit like 'Rumplestiltskin'

To answer your first question, Nadal was on fire today. Robredo had a short purple patch where he broke back in set #2 playing sublime tennis but on the whole Rafa was just too quick and too strong.

I think Piggy goes into this match as the firm favourite having beaten Rumplestiltskin in all their previous meetings, however Stepanek is the kind of player that can sometimes leave opponents scratching their heads after points with some of his play- last year in Paris he produced quite a bit of magic so he might be able to trouble Nadal a bit if he can maintain some sort of consistency. But overall expect Rafa to come out on top.
