Re: Rafa Nadal or Fer Verdasco?

Previous meetings ( none on grass ) : Nadal leads 6-0 ( including two non ATP matches : one on clay at spanish championships and another on carpet at an exhibition tournament ).

Nadal to win tomorrow in straight sets .

Probably Fernando's best chance to ever beat Rafael if it will happen.

Andreev - Cilic - Dolgopolov - De Bakker - Djokovic - Gulbis - Haase - Hrbaty - J Johansson - Kucera - Kuznetsov - Russell - Simon - Sweeting - Thron

Dominika Cibulková

Re: Queen's 2r:Rafa Nadal or Fer Verdasco?

Nadal says that one of the main keys why Verdasco has a lot of troubles playing against him is because the way Fernando hits the forehand is perfect for Nadal's forehand and helps him a lot to hit his own fh and make his fh more dangerous.

Though this match is on grass and this theory is only valid for clay and hardcourts.

Re: Queen's 2r:Rafa Nadal or Fer Verdasco?

Pffft Nando has the weapons to get his 1st against Rafa win on grass but he doesnt have the mentality. Rafa in straights

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: Queen's 2r:Rafa Nadal or Fer Verdasco?

The commentators on bbc were saying the winner of fish/rafa would feel its an easier match. I actually think verdasco will be a far more difficult match for rafa than fish would ever be. Verdasco has the tools to blow him off the court, this is really an interesting one. I am thinking I favour verdasco slightly, but its too tight to call.

Nando has struggled enough as it is this week and nearly lost to ATP supremo Alan Mackin in R2 qualifying....if he can nearly do that then Nadal should take him out without too many problems.

Re: Queen's 2r:Rafa Nadal or Fer Verdasco?

Rafa has said he is tired physically. So I think Verdasco will win tomorrow. But I don't know enough about his grass court game...so who knows. I think it's up in the air.

I hope Rafa wins though.
