I voted for Davy in 2 just for the hell of it. I think it's more likely to be Rafa in 2. =)

Nadal naturally. He will revenge his Miami defeat for sure in straight sets.

I think Nadal will win in straight sets, Davydenko may trouble him but I don't think he'll be able to keep his level high enough to defeat Nadal.

Denko has excellent *finishing power off both wings*, should trouble piggy a lot.

Denko has excellent *finishing power off both wings*, should trouble piggy a lot.
He also has excellent * choking and hitting errors against top players*, this should help piggy a lot

In other words, he has the game but lacks what Spanish people call 'cojones'

Rafa!

Davydenko had a lot of dificulties against the topspin of Andreev. And Nadal is by far more regular.

Nadal is going to beat up this cheating little fixer so badly that he actually will be injured afterwards.

Nadal won't lose more than 5 games. He'll pound him.

I am curious to see if Davydenko can extend his Rafa roasting skills onto clay. The guy is immensely strong off both wings, but I sense that this just won't be effective enough even to win him a set, because of the greater bounce. Rafa catches up to everything on this surface, something he can't do with a low bouncing hardcourt. Every balls comes up, rather than coming at him.

Davydenko has played some very long and tight matches. Even without Davydenkos tiredness Rafa would be the heavy favourite. The King of Clay will prevail in two sets. :wavey:

Nadal should take this, but based on today's performance, I wouldn't pick him for the title.

sphiie

Nadal will win I think. In two or three sets? That's the question. Davy seems to be tired because he said that move on Miami, Davis cup, Estoril... and now MOnte carlo, it's hard for him. moreover, davy said that he refused ti play at Barcelona next week. So I think Rafa in 2sets :D he wants this title !!Vamos RAFa the best on clay !!!!! :D

Raf. Within a blink of an eye - in two, something like 6-3, 6-2.

Nadal in 2-0 or maybe 2-1, really doesn't matter - he'll still win.

Sadly I think it will be an easy win for Nadal :rolleyes: But I still hope for a miracle, so davai Kolya :hug:

i like the way you think Buffoooooooooooooooonette. russian coward really should have lost today as andreev didnt have the balls to win it.

it is not a easy matchup for Nadal. he has to win the first set and stamp his authority on the match. maybe the coward will run again with some other imaginary injury.

Well, if Denko plays the same way he did today, all Raf will have to do is keep patience, bring the ball back (and we all know that Raf is pretty good at that ;)) - and watch Denko go :timebomb: :cool:

Well last year in 2007 it would be 3 set match in which davydenko has 700 match points in a 3rd set tie break but chokes them all away and loses.

However its 2008 and that means it will be davydenko in 2 easy sets, 6-4 6-2

This should be an entertaining match if Davy plays well. If he finds some consistency in his shots, I feel he has a chance.

But the favourite is still the owner of the house, of course.

Nadal. Davydenko can't hurt him on clay like he can on hard courts, if he gets lucky he might sneak a set but I doubt it.

Kolya

Nadal is the safe and obvious bet.

Ruski
04-26-2008, 03:24 AM
Kolya needs to be at his best!
But, after his QF performance I doubt that he is in a good form at this tournament!
Still, I will be cheering for Kolya on every single point!

If the odds were higher than 1.5:1 for Nadal, I would say Nadal in 1. Now that the odds are 1.2:1 for Nadal, I think it will be Nadal in 2.

Don't underestimate Davydenko... there's just 20% who thinks that Davy will win. He's a strong man you know! Remember their last match on clay ( Roma... ) 3hours of game. But sure, now Davy is tired... Rafa has an advantage so, Rafa take it !! VAMOS :D
