Roddick vs. Nalbandian: Who will win?

Interesting match-up. Roddick leads the h2h 3-1, but they haven’t played for over 3 years (with Nalbandian winning their last encounter)

Could go either way, though Roddick is playing some of his best tennis at the moment.

Re: Roddick vs. Nalbandian: Who will win?

It's just a hunch, but I'll pick Roddick in 3 sets.

With the good people.

Re: Roddick vs. Nalbandian: Who will win?

I wouldn't blame Nalbandian at all if he couldn't really compete fully now. Roddick will probably win. On the other hand, maybe the sad news will somehow inspire (I don't know if that's the right word) Nalbandian to win, kind of like what happened with Pete Sampras at the Australian Open in 1995.

totally. i think nalbandian won't be fully focused on the match, but then again he may have the extra motivation to win to avenge what has happened.

Re: Roddick vs. Nalbandian: Who will win?

Its amazing to me that these two have not played in over 3 years. I think Roddick will win, but I hope Nalbandian plays a good match, although that will be difficult given the circumstances.

Re: Roddick vs. Nalbandian: Who will win?

Thanks for being respectful guys and not using despective names for Nalbandian.

Without this disaster I didn't have to much hope about Nalby's winning. Less now, except this acts like somekind of last straw and Nalbo reacts to his goldson's dead, with fury. In that case, a pissed off Nalbandian is the most stronger player of both. But from what I read, he's totally numb right now.

This is a request, as I said this at another thread, I'm not saying not to talk about tennis or even if he plays horrible tomorrow don't say it. But, I know it can be fun for some people, but for respect to the player, and even to his fans, just don't call him Fat Dave or similar despective days, at least these couple of days, okay?

David wants to get home, Roddick will help him on his way in 2.

Re: Roddick vs. Nalbandian: Who will win?

I think it would have made more sense for him to withdraw and fly out today. He is not going to be in a fit state to do himself justice in the match. I assume death in the family is a permissible reason to withdraw.

In normal circumstances yes, but these are not normal circumstances.

Fair point, but we still don't know yet what sort of impact the death of his cousin will have on his performance. He chose not to withdraw for a reason; who knows which Nalbandian will come out and play tomorrow.
