WWW: Toronto QF - Nadal vs Kohlschreiber

With Philipp reaching his 4th quarterfinal appearance at a Masters Series event, he sets up a chance to play Nadal.

Neither of them are playing their best but this should be an intriguing match. Nadal has yet to beat Kohlschreiber in straight sets outside of clay, so I think we should see a 3 setter because we all know how Philipp loves to tease us and piss the top players off. Philipp has the ability to beat Nadal, so it isn't impossible, but it will be a big mountain to climb. Early this year, Philipp nearly took Nadal to 5 at the Australian Open as well, so cross your fingers for an entertaining matchup.

All their matches on a hardcourt were tough so it could be another close one.

Why don't ATP just put Nadull in the Semi's in every tourney instead of giving him byes.

give him the trophy.
he is the only man in world history to bite the wimbledon trophy and a week later bite the world cup trophy.

Koli has a special talents, he'll bother Nadal. But I don't think he'll defeat Number 1

Walkover for Rafa

by MTF standards - if he loses this he'd better retire :D

Kohli in 3.

Kohlschreiber has potential to play one Masters Series final in his career. He can beat Nadal but has to keep concentration on the same level through more than 2 hours, 7-6 6-4 or 7-6 6-3 but if Nadal wins 1st or 2nd set, Kohli will be hopeless.

Phillip could take a set. Depends on Rafa and his level. As indicated by the H2H, Rafa is clearly two levels about Kohli, and will almost assuredly win.

He'll take the first set in yet another tiebreak, give his fans heart palpitations during the process, and then put away the second easily. Or... the first set will go to a tiebreak which he'll lose, palpitations will give way to coronaries, and then he'll pull it out in the third. It would really save on medical fees if he could win it in straights.

Ugh... This is a bad match-up for Nadal. He always struggles against Kohli, and Kohli has had an uprising form as of lately. I still say Rafa in 3. But it's going to be a tough match for sure.

This will be 9th consecutive Masters 1000 1/2 for great Spaniard

its looking like it'll be the top 4 in the semis, which is good but it would be nice to have atleast one shock semifinalist so im hoping for kohli to play the game of his life and pull this out in 3.

Kohlschreiber has always played one good set, and then plays a couple of bad sets against Rafa, and manages to lose. I expect this to be no different than any of their previous matches. Rafa in 2.

I was right! lol. I love it. I'm starting to get a hang on tennis tipping these days. Especially when it comes to Nadal. I remember guessing the exact winning result from the Rafa match when he played against Hewitt in Wimbledon (I think?). I said he would win 6-4, 6-3, 6-4, and he did!

And let me know when Nadal and Hewitt have ever played at Wimbledon.
