Basel 1st round, who wins? Fit Dave or Stan the Man?

Assuming he doesn't withdraw (in his press conference he said he would play), Nalbi has a tough first match ahead.

I believe he will relax, plus he never cared much for MM tournies, so I predict that Stan the Man will avenge his countryman loss in Madrid in two sets.

dunno, Wawrinka is a very good player who beat The argentine the last

three times they both faced each other :o even in this same tournament

last year, and he beat Nalbandian in Vienna two weeks ago but it was a

very close in the first two sets ,-no the last one :o-

Expect an early Nalby loss so he can rest up for Paris.

10-21-2007, 07:32 PM
Stan beat him 2 weeks ago, no?

Its going to be tough for "fit" dave.

Fit Dave will double pretzel Wawrinka 6-3, 6-3.

10-21-2007, 08:01 PM
Have I just coined 'double pretzel'? I'm not sure. Either way it will happen.

10-21-2007, 08:03 PM
Fit Dave will double pretzel Wawrinka 6-3, 6-3.

great :yeah:

10-21-2007, 08:05 PM
great :yeah:

It was either that or double-Anna Nicole Smith. But I didn't want to be insensitive.

10-21-2007, 08:05 PM
Nalbandian in 2 :devil:
Vamos nalby

If Nalby doesn't spend his time in both McDonald's and F**kDonald's (quick sex place) till the 1st round, he should win.

i actually think stan has a shot here :scratch:

nalbandian is usually motivated to play high quality opponents and on big stages. Esp coming off this great win, i would expect him to tank the match and prepare for paris.

I votes for Nalbadian in 3, but tou can never know..It defends on many things.. Will Nalby be tired or will he continue from where he lft in Madrid? And Stan the man (Damn I like that nick-name!) beat him for the last 3 times they met before (Including Vienna two weeks ago)

I usually root for Stan, but I really want to see Dave meet Roger again for a little revange.

Fit Dave will accept a one million dollar offer from the Russian mafia to lose, and then prepare himself for Paris by spending that million on the best donuts money can buy.

10-22-2007, 11:30 AM
the real swiss no.1 in 3

10-22-2007, 11:49 AM
If you had posted this up before Madrid, this would've have been quite easy :lol:

But seriously, coming off a tough campaign Dave might not have enough in the tank. It really depends on whether he's fit enough and/or can be bothered... assuming he is, I'll say Nalbandian in 3

10-22-2007, 11:53 AM
haha fit dave =P

10-22-2007, 04:09 PM
I agree Dave needs to find more donuts.
