Nadal v Andreev: Thoughts?

Surprised no poll on this one given that Igor was the last person to beat Nadal on clay and leads their h2h 1-0.

Another potential bananaskin in the Rafa draw and Igor's current ATP ranking is a result of knee injury requiring surgery. Certainly Igor has big enough strokes on both fh and bh to hit past Rafa.

70:30 to Rafa then but if he's not near his best (as with Marcos in the last 2 sets) then he might just be in trouble.

Please see here if interested in downloading tennis matches.

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a Rafa hater. I am, however, a RAFATARD hater and therefore take endless delight in each Rafa loss as it allows me to sock it hard to his tards. Do try and understand the difference (TARDS)! Don't get me started on Choke-ovic though. Him I do despise. And his TARDS are the lowest of the low .

Re: Nadal v Andreev: Thoughts?

Igor's been kinda unstable still after his comeback and great DC matches in Chile so who knows. Besides it's not clay ... oh right, GlennMirnyi & Co will rush here to say Dubai is [insert the suitable adjective] clay.

Re: Nadal v Andreev: Thoughts?

Maybe Nadal should be happy it isn't clay

Rafa in 2. But I'm not familiar with Igor's game.

Re: Nadal v Andreev: Thoughts?

Andreev can be dangerous.
I hope Rafa plays his best tennis....

I'll definitely cheer for him!

Anti-Nadal troll warning.

Re: Nadal v Andreev: Thoughts?

Nadal was awesome in set 2 and 3 yesterday against baggy. This was all because of his 1st serve going in...

If 1st serve is high andreev has no chance

Re: Nadal v Andreev: Thoughts?

Igor last to beat rafa on clay doesn't say everything. remember Ancic was the last who beat federer on grass and if it was Ancic vs Federer well....

But Igor is a power player I think, and everytime I say that Rafa loses (lately) so who knows?

Igor has more chances to win on clay than on hard courts
