James Blake v. David Nalbandian

Regardless of the outcome of Blake's match against Robredo, he will be playing David Nalbandian for the first time in the semifinals on Saturday. Who will win this key matchup and advance to the finals?

I expect a lot of great baseline rallies with Blake barely getting the better of David in 3 tight sets.

Fat Dave. He is a better player than Blake anyway. A man on a mission. He'd like to win this to dedicate it to his little nephew.

Re: James Blake v. David Nalbandian

I'm rooting for Dave (he really needs a boost right now!), but I think it'll be James to take this one. In three sets.

Re: James Blake v. David Nalbandian

In terms of the match-up...it is not to Blake's advantage. He should struggle as he did against Davydenko in the first half of their match...

Re: James Blake v. David Nalbandian

It would be wise for Blake to attack Nalbandian's 1st AND 2nd serve. Also attack David's forehand which can go off. Blake still is better off the ground than Roddick so Blake has a legit shot to get to the final.
