The "David and David" match :D

who will win this epic first round encounter?

08-09-2010, 06:18 AM
I hope David Nalbandian in 2.

08-09-2010, 06:42 AM
I hope David Nalbandian in 3...
But I'm not sure about it.

Great stuff considering it's the 1st round. Hoping for David (edit: Nalbandian :P) in 3 but Ferrer is good. Should be an entertaining match either way.

08-09-2010, 07:19 AM
hope Nalby win this

08-09-2010, 08:11 AM
Considering it's Nalbandian he'll probably be tired, play like crap and get owned.

Ferrer in straights.

08-09-2010, 11:16 AM
its a masters 1000, he needs the ranking points, so nalbandian should win.

08-09-2010, 11:35 AM
Nalby in 2 if on fire. If not nalby in 3 should be a great match though

Very curious about this one, especially how Nalbi will turn out after last week.

08-09-2010, 01:04 PM
Should be a very interesting match. I'm going to say Nalbandian in 3. Cautiously optimistic that the title will help him relax. Could go the other way though with fatigue. Ferrer is tough enough, but a tired Nalbandian will be in trouble..

Two tournaments in two weeks, having won the first after a four month injury lay off could be abit much even for king david.

08-09-2010, 07:51 PM
This is likely to be more difficult than any of the matches he played in Washington. I think Nalbandian will have enough in the tank to keep it going for a couple of matches and unless there is a dip in the recent burst of form he is exhibiting, he could well win this one too. That said, Ferrer is the best retourner on tour and one of the grittiest competitors. I wouldn't count him out of the match by any means and I expect him to take a set.

On paper at least, it is a cracker of a first round match.

08-09-2010, 08:20 PM
Nalbandian 6 - 4 2 - 6 7 - 5

08-09-2010, 08:22 PM
Ferrer is a bad match up for Nalbandian and leads the head to head 6-4.


Should be close and slightly favouring Ferrer to lead head to head 7-4 after the match.

08-09-2010, 08:28 PM
Nalbandian in 3 but it's definitely tough because Ferrer handles Nalbandian pretty well.

Nalbi in 2 rather easy sets

with Ferru's second serve, might be an embarassing result at the end

08-09-2010, 08:34 PM
dahveed over david in straights.

08-10-2010, 08:24 AM
nalbandian in two sets ;)

08-10-2010, 02:48 PM
Good luck David!!!:)
No injury anymore ...

08-10-2010, 03:00 PM
Ferrer is not at his best (lost to Soderling in Bastad and to clown Monfils in DC quarter then pulled out of Hamburg due to painful shoulder) but Nalby must be tired and it's not easy to "forget" last week to focuse on Toronto...It would not be the 1rst time a player who won a tournament in previous week, loses on first round of the following tournament..
Very difficult task for El Rey...hope he can win without beeing injured once again

08-10-2010, 03:05 PM
i agree with you but i think that nalby will win 2-3 matches and then rest till cincy..

offtopic:i think that clown cant be in top 20 in professional tennis so dont misjudge LaMonf!

08-10-2010, 05:03 PM
Ferrer in 3.

25% of you were right :)
