Nadal v Baghdatis - Dubai rd1. Who wins?

Defending champ Rafael Nadal will face off with Marcos Baghdatis in round 1.
Tough draw for Rafa as he will probably face Berdych in the qf!

Time for the draw to be posted.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

OMG

Nadal should win it...he struggles more against power players whilst Baggy struggles most against the retrievers who like to construct the point.

Re: Nadal v Baghdatis - Dubai rd1. Who wins?

What a draw for Nadal. Baghdatis, Andreev (possibly) in the second round, Youzhny or Berdych in QF.

Stepanek v Haas and Ferrer v Soderling are also tough 1st round match-ups.

Re: Nadal v Baghdatis - Dubai rd1. Who wins?

Baghdatis has very little with which to hurt Nadal as was in evidence in their two encounters last year.

However from that point on things get a little bit more difficult for him

Re: Nadal v Baghdatis - Dubai rd1. Who wins?

Federer has an easy half, as I think Haas and Djokvic(especially) might pull out as they've deep in draws already. I think Nadal will be lucky to get out of his quarter, but if he does he stands a decent shot at getting to the finals.

I see Rafa as slight favourite, but I will cheer for Baggy

If you put Nadal's lack of match practice aside, he is 70/30 favourite imo
