TMC RR: Nadal vs. Blake - who will win?

Will Nadal finally get his first win over Blake, a player whom he holds a 0-2 record against?

How will Blake deal mentally with his TMC debut?

I think Nadal will make the finals of TMC (if he can avoid Fed in the semi) so I pick him.

I have a feeling Nadal will notch up his first win over Blake.

Re: TMC RR: Nadal vs. Blake - who will win?

I have no idea, really. Blake seems to be good indoors this year, but he's got problems in bigger events. Nevertheless, he's won all matches against Rafa. Rafa on the other hand had a long break and won only one non-claycourt tournament this year. But it's still Rafa
Maybe Blake in 3

hmmm 50/50, but blake knows how to play him and has confidence coming in seeing that he has a winning record over nadal.

You might as well vote for the fifth option then.
