Thumbs up Rafa's draw!!!

I am a fan of Rafa but I accept that this is the hardest draw he's ever had. It's like a draw from hell for him. Think that he has the probability to play Safin (3 times champion here), Gasquet (best french player at his home soil), Blake (hasn't won a match against him), Berdych (lost 3 consecutive times and we can say his enemy after the Madrid match and defending champion here) consecutively before a clash with most probably Federer in the final. I want to make a fantasy poll with this draw. Suppose that he will be a finalist in this tournament. Which match of Rafa do you want to see most? In this draw every match of him will be a blockbuster and all the tennis fans around the world would eagerly wait for Rafa's matches with each of these guys. Let's vote!!!

Federer, of course. I'm perplexed as to why the hell everyone before me wanted to see him play Safin.

Re: Rafa's draw!!!

You should have included a Nadal/Nalbandian match

Out of those, Safin/Nadal is a very likely and interesting matchup, and one that would proabably favour Safin on that surface. Kudos to him if he manages to win that

Re: Rafa's draw!!!

Safin/Nadal!!

If Safin plays well he should beat Rafa. But you never know with Marat

Rooting for: Roddick | Federer | Blake| Fish | Bryans | Gasquet | Querrey | Baghdatis | Verdasco | Kimmy
Missing: Andre | Safin | Women's tennis

Re: Rafa's draw!!!

Marat gets nervous pretty quickly so with Rafa's delaying between points and his continuous jumping around Marat will brake all the rackets he has

Nadal-Berdych can be enormous

Re: Rafa's draw!!!

I'd love to see Safin vs. Nadal but Safin is liable to lose to Clement.

wow, really? that could be an awesome match, provided Safin shows up...

btw, I'm getting sick of federer/nadal matches, its been a rather blissful half year without having to see those two go at it again.

MARAT.

roddick, hewitt, berdych, muller, tursunov, grosjean, djokovic
