When will Rogie and Rafa meet again (it's been a year now)?

Madrid, French Open, Wimbledon, or later?

FO SF or F?

The draw for the SF could be: Rogie/Rafa and Chokovic/Murray or Rogie/Murray and Chokovic/Rafa.

Roland Garros, Roger doesn't make it far enough in other tournaments to face Rafa

It's amazing to think that we're in May and there have only been 2 top 5 clashes the whole year:

Murray (ranked 4) d. Nadal (2) Australian Open Quarters
Federer (1) d. Murray (4) Australian Open Final

Last year there had been over 10 such clashes by the end of Rome.

Murray will never make it to there.

Haha, since Roger can't make it far enough to meet Rafito on clay and Rafa can't make it deep enough everywhere else I guess those 2 won't meet up for some time... :o

Do you need Rafa's knees to burn out again after a 4 hour match or it won't be necessary this time?

Order and I will obey, my Lord.

Better for Roger then, because when they meet the most likely outcome turns into a nightmare for him.

Problem is Roger has pretty much to worry about Rafito only, on the other hand, about everyone on tour can blow Rafito off court (off clay) :hug:

Wimbledon, the hallowed ground of champions, is where they'll meet next. It will be in the final and, of course, it will go the distance.

Even if they do meet in the 2010 W final and it does go 5 sets, Rogie will prevail once again!

I bet Fedal rivalry will continue in Wimby...

Unless they're in the same half in one or both of them, if they're on opposite sides for both, I think there's a much better chance it happens at the FO and not W. There are quite a few these days I think who can beat Rafa on grass. Clay is a totally different situation though, but if on opposite sides, expect Rogie and Rafa to meet in the 2010 FO final.

Who are you thinking of?

The only person who has a chance of beating Rafa before the final is Murray..

Everyone else sucks on slow grass.

You're giving Djokovic the choke title and not Murray? Seriously?

I think is gonna be in wimbledon...don't think that nadal or federer can make ir to the final of Madrid...and don't why but I have the feeling that roger is going to lose early in RG...so Wim is the best chance!!!

Well, maybe not :spit: material, but with the way Nadal's been doing against the top 8 on HCs, it's not very likely that he can get to the USO final. But, he may prove me wrong though.

It is clay season and as every year people start to overrate Nadal as if he were some unbeatable monster everywhere... He's by miles the best on clay, granted, but still remains a mere top 10 off clay :shrug: for him to get to a USO final he'd need to be damn lucky and avoid many hard hitters en route... :shrug:
