Obviously, you play a lot of mind games with yourself, but it is important to always believe that you can play your best, perform your best, and in the end, your convictions are stronger than your doubts.

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.

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.
