Should be an entertaining match.

Nadal is the favourite of course, but I'm curios how Ferrer will play this match tactically.

Nadal in straights but Ferrer will put up a reasonable fight for most of the match in all likelihood. Whilst a lot of people will come in here saying Ferrer has a big shot because he is in form and has beaten Nadal before on clay it's a different story and where Ferrer was controlling points against Nadal at the USO and TMC he will be running about 10 miles each point on clay where Nadal finds it so much easier to dominate.

Raf in two, no doubts about that.

Hopefully Ferrer will be able to give him a bit of a match.

Ferrer is a great player, just came off the Valencia win and is in fantastic form, but that doesn't mean he has a chance here.

I can't even begin to predict. I want Rafa to win, even though I love Pics. I really think it could go either way. Pics might be more fresh, after that total meltdown from Tipsy. He didn't really have to do much in the 2nd set. Of course that could work against him as well.

No matter the result, I'm sure the match will kill me.

I'm thinking Nadal, but I also think Ferrer could possibly pull it off.

Nadal, first set will be competitive, second easier, he should outlast Torito

Nadal 6-4, 6-2 -OR- 7-5, 6-2. Ferru will have some chances in the first set, but will then be overwhelmed.

No way. Ferrer has absolute confidence after beating Nadal at the US Open. He KNOWS he has the game to take down Nadal.

Nadal in straight sets, Ferrer will put up a fight but I doubt it'll be enough to defeat Nadal on clay

This draw sucks for Pics. I'd give him a strong chance against Djokovic, Davydenko, Federer, Nalbandian or anyone else left in the tournament. The only one he doesn't stand a chance against is Nadal.

I agree, though. Nadal in 3.

Difficult to say for me. I'm having little faith on Rafa but, in this tournament, he is demostrating he is the clay courter of the world. By the way I will bet a couple of chips on David Ferrer

I hope that it will be Rafa... Ferrer makes me scared but I trust in Rafa, he's demonstrating that he's the king of clay... Vamos RAFA he's the best !! :D

They will beat each other to a pulp, then most probably Nadal will win. They had an excellent match in Rome 2005, very competitive and entertaining.

They met at Barcelona last year. First set was very competitive. Second set not that much. Ferrer definitely has a chance here.

Nadal is not deserving of a poll in a clay match-up.

Nadal, after a good fight from Ferrer in the 1st, and weaker performance in the 2nd

No doubt that Pics will be fighting till the end but it will be Rafa in 2 anyway.

If this was a hardcourt it would be all Pics. Alas it is not and it will be all Nadal in a routine straight sets win.

All I'm hoping for is an entertaining match. Both could take it but I'd say Rafa is gonna go through to the next round.:shrug:

2 sets is a best scenario for the Clay Monster but it could take him 3 to subdue Ferru.
