Re: nadal or ginepri?

This is tough. Here's my assessment:

Nadal
+Forehand
+Speed
+Endurance
+Topspin with angles

Ginepri
+Power
+Backhand
+Serve
+Topspin with penetration

If Nadal is on his game it will be Nadal with a score of somthing like 6-7 6-3 6-4, if Nadal gives Ginepri even a little bit of breathing room, it will be Robby 6-4 7-5.

Re: nadal or ginepri?

although nadal is not playing his best tennis these days, i just cant see him loosing to ginepri... the only guy left that may beat him in this tournment, i think, is ljubicic,
who will be tired if he gets into the final

anyway, i guess nadal in straight sets, but not easy..

Re: nadal or ginepri?

Ginepri has had a great run but I don't how he will be able to beat Nadal. You need to be able to blast away from the beginning to beat Nadal like Blake did and Robby just doesn't have the firepower.

Re: nadal or ginepri?

I think that for Ginepri to have any chance he has to take the first set. Nadal in three, two close sets and a blowout in the third

Re: nadal or ginepri?

Robby, I hope. But the crowd will play a factor I think. Since Roger and Rafa have won all the TMS events so far this year (but really because Roger isn't playing ) it would be nice for someone else to win one.

Re: nadal or ginepri?

Nadal in two without no tie break..

Ginepri will have to honour of tasting Nadal's topspin by first time tomorrow..

Nadal was playing horribly in Flushing meadows without aggressiveness playing very short and it was logical that Blake defeated Nadal watching as Rafa played against Reynolds and Jenkins and watching as Blake was playing since New Haven.

There are some matches when the opponent is able to handle Nadal's topspin, but these matches are the exception , because in the 90% of matches played on clay and hardcourts this topspin is a destructive weapon and the opponent has nigthmares with this crazy spin..( Check for example Federer's press conference the day before Miami final )

By the way, the boy who is in your avatar has still nightmares with Nadal's topspin..

Good night

Re: nadal or ginepri?

I just don't think Nadal is in good physical shape right now. I hope I'm wrong because I admire his courageous game and think him a big hope for the future.
