I think it will go to three sets this time, but I think Nando will win again. He's very motivated to beat the top players.

Only another meltzdown from Nole will stop him from slaughtering Nando thats played so many matches now and hardly any under 2 hours.

That is the correct word to describe his performance in Monte Carlo. To be fair to him I don't think he was ok physically. Even after the first game commentators on sky made that observation and indeed, after the match in an interview Novak said that he had a problem with allergies. He looked very tired from the start of that Monte Carlo semi. I expect him to beat Nando in 2 tight sets tomorrow.

What ever! Nando tired, Nole rested, would go for Nole. However still believe in Nando and let's see what happen. Not forgetting that a week rest earlier would be great for next tourn. ;)

Indeed!!!!! Nole will have to serve better, focus better, stay away from the "up and down" performance if he wants to win tomorrow. On the other end, I must add, Verdasco was patchy too against Garcia-Lopez and his body language was on the downhill. I sensed a bit of "too much tennis today". Garcia-Lopez was a break down in the 2nd, manage to get the break back and take it to a tie break, but that is when he went away and could not find the court really especially at the beginning of the tie break, which ultimately gave Verrdasco the win..... Having said that for me it's a 50:50 chance.

Djoks in 3 is a safe bet imho.

Verdasco will beat him again but this time in three. I have not been impressed at all by Nole so far this season.

Not convinced Djokovic can beat Verdasco in this form. Fernando in 3.

I want to say Nole, but he's was just OK today. It's going to take more than average to beat Fernando. So it depends totally on Nole's form to me.

I will say Nando in 2 tight sets or 3 sets, but I can see it going any way.

Nole needs to play better than he did today, then he will surely beat Verdasco.

Yes, this one is very tough to predict...made especially tough because there are two strong, yet conflicting, arguments that can be made (and have already been touched on by certain posters):

- FOR a Nole win: Verdasco will run out of steam at some stage...and Nole certainly can drain him of energy.

- AGAINST a Nole win - I agree with a poster, above, in being unconvinced by Nole's general form this year. Yes, he is probably playing better than on that awful post-AO hard court swing, but in the end that amounted to nothing in Monte Carlo (where Verdasco hammered him). If Verdasco can maintain his current form then I see no reason why he can't take him apart again.

Will certainly be interesting to see what happens. :)

I think nole will win...verdasco has played a lot of matches in tle last 15 days...and he will be kind of tired tomorrow

Nando is gonna be dead physically speaking, but still has a chance to beat Nole, so I agree with El Burro :p

I really hope, Novak will take his revenge, the match in MC was so poor.
