Okay, seeing as how I have worked myself into fine form by correctly predicting Nadal would crush Roddick in the IW semifinal it is now time to up the ante.
This demolition of Roddick has excorsized whatever demons remained in the Nadal psyche from last year and he has now formally regained his mojo. So, I predict he will win every tournament he enters between now until mid-June and won't lose another match until the grasscourt season.
First of all the IW final:
- If Murray beats Djokovic he may give Nadal a bit of a battle as he did at the Australian, but ultimately Nadal is the fresher of the two and mentally tougher.
- If Djokovic beats Murray, he still doesn't have the capacity to keep it together in the crucial points especially not against someone with the stamina of Nadal.
Add to that the fact that the final is a best of five set match, neither Nole nor Muzza are taking three sets off Rafa. Rafa wins IW.
With the IW title in the bag and his confidence and rythm back, Rafa will steamroll his way past opposition on the purple clay in Miami.
After Miami we have the clay
clay season- with Rafa's confidence sky high and his game clicking we all know what will happen there.
So there you have it folks, no more loses for our dear little pig until Queen's at least.
From now until mid-June, pork is off the MTF menu.
The new sage of MTF has spoken!
