Nadal x Djokovic, QF sounding like final of RG? Nope! Unfortunately!!!

Both are young and have showing an emotional equilibrium that will be the main factor to determinate the winner!!
Plus, I'm sorry for Fereder fans but he hasn't suffer a real threat while the too young men have already played realy tough matches!!!! I believe the winner from this match will be the RG 2006 champion!!

MOYA!

Re: Nadal x Djokovic, QF sounding like final of RG?

Djokovic's ranking is 65, had never been to a quarter final before. I don't think he's got the level to play a final of a grand slam yet, but give him 2 years and he should be ok.

Spoken like a true Rafa fan.

Djokovic's not coming to net to finish off points will cost him the match

My great tennis loves-Roger Federer, Paul Henry Mathieu and Marat Safin

Grigor Dimitrov & David Goffin - The future of tennis

Allez - Jerzy Janowicz, Jose Acasuso , Lleyton, Djokovic, Nalbandian, Clement, Nicolas Almagro, Stanislas Wawrinka

Re: Nadal x Djokovic, QF sounding like final of RG?

if djokovic can attack with his forehand and come in to net, he's got a great chance

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

It will be a fun match. I think there are still some good players left in the top half of the draw.

Really? I confess that all the finals that Rafa played against Federer I was cheering for Rafa!! I'm not one of his huge fans, but I like the kid, specially because he has been the only one capable of beat Federer, I was quite tired of seen him winning everytime, even with his brilliant tennis that deserve all my respect! But I was quite bored, really!! Ok now someone will kill me probably!!

Re: Nadal x Djokovic, QF sounding like final of RG?

Djoko said at the end of his Monfils match he was feeling tired and didn't know what would have happened if he'd lost one of those two tiebreaks.

Not sure about physically but I think he's a bit mentally exhausted right now - this is new territory for him and he expended a lot of intensity to get by Gonzo and Haas.

I hope he can regroup over the next 36 hours or so because he has a very tall order waiting for him. He has weapons to hurt Nadal though I don't know about defeating him right now - but he's going to need to be fresh or it could come quite easily for Rafa.

Re: Nadal x Djokovic, QF sounding like final of RG?

at the thread. Novak is not consistent enough to pose problems for Nadal. Plus he desperately needs volleying skills for his high risk game. Nadal will win even if he has some more brain farts in the match.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Nadal doesn't need to do volley's but as it happens he is surprisingly good at them for a claycourter. The reason someone playing Rafa needs to be comfortable volleying is because otherwise it takes an outrageous shot to win 1 point.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Nadal doesn't need to. His plays high percentage tennis using his extreme topspin to very good effect.

You are over-rating Djokovic - he is dangerous, but not yet ready for beating Nadal. He still has problems with endurance, he makes ugly mistakes too often etc. - unlike Nadal he is not yet a complete player.

As for Federer - he will possibly play Nalbandian in SF (or Davydenko). That is much more of a final before the final than any other match. And only that single match-up makes Federer's draw much more difficult than Nadal's.

Ok, might be, but I don't think Rafa is a complete player yet, yes he is ahead of Djkovic, but turned out that he is having a good week and it could be a surprise!
Uhm, Nalby has been quite struggling on his matches in RG, not consistent! But because of that he can either beat or not both Davydenko and Federer! I haven't seen Nalbadian x Federer in Rome so I can't say much about it! Just have to wait for tomorrow!! And I feel sorry for Anicic which will probably not have yet physical condition to play at his best!

Djokovic might take a set, but he won't win, no matter how much I want him to.
