Chela's chances against Rafa

Chela is in the shape of his life this season, but so is Rafa the last month.
What do you think of this match?

I think it will be very, very close, but Rafa will clinch it in three.

Re: Chela's chances against Rafa

1 set will be close and then chela will breakdown and get battered in the other. I don't even like Rafa, but the the 3rd round will be a better match

Re: Chela's chances against Rafa

I don't like Rafa either, but I feel kind of sorry for his draw. Chela is definitely the toughest unseeded player in the draw.

Re: Chela's chances against Rafa

Hmmm. I expect Chela to be just cannon fodder for Raf.
And NO, I'm not jinxing him here.

Chela's chances = a snowball's chance in hell.

Re: Chela's chances against Rafa

JIC is playing solid but no way on earth he's defeating Rafa.

Re: Chela's chances against Rafa

I know his chances are slim, but I think you are overreacting a bit.

Don't forget that Chela has won more matches than Rafa this year and it's Rafa's first match on clay for almost a year, which must take some adaptation.

Re: Chela's chances against Rafa

Well mardy dit pretty well against chela if I look at the statistics, he won a game on chela's serve and finally was able to win some points on return games.

Well I don't see chela upsetting Nadal,

Nalbandian

Escude-Kuerten
Dutch players

Gasquet-Ferrero-Lopez-Mathieu

Nadal-Acasuso-Haas-Youzhny-Berdych-Gonzalez-Tursunov

Söderling-Del Potro-Bellucci-Lapentti-Roddick-Verdasco

Re: Chela's chances against Rafa

Federer lost early in the past two HC Masters Series tourneys, so will Nadal in the clay events. (Not that I want it to happen)

An order of magnitude lower that they would be on a hard court and that just about says everything for those who saw their match at IW.
