They'll be squaring off in the third round of Beijing on hard court, what's you prediction?


I'm thinking Nalbandian 4-6 6-3 6-2.

David could make it, but it depends on how fast he wants to go to Slovakia ;) I hope he can win though.

As much as i love ferrero and don't want to admit this, he's lost his touch sadly. David i think!

H2H is 2-0 to Nalba and those meetings were when JC was still one of the top players. Also, you'd have to fancy David's chances on faster surfaces, especially after he beat Hewitt on grass. Beijing is quite fast hard courts, I think.
Probably Nalbandian will win.

Yes but this could be a turning point.
COME ON JC :bigclap:

Despite the difference in rankings I reckon this is a 50/50 match, but I would like Ferrero to win. His win over the fiery Tursonov was an impressive result and after a huge disappointment against Clement at the US Open he would appear to have got his game in working gear again.

These two lads have simular styles and are good on return, although Ferrero is the better server, has a better forehand and in my opinion has a more spectacular game. Nalbandian has a slightly better backhand and is a genuine all surface player. I wish I could see this match up, what ever the result expect lots of service breaks, slamming two-handed backhands, and lots of lateral movement!

It could be.....
Ferrero d Nalbandian in 3
I think Nalbandian is focused in DC and Ferrero has nothing to lose

Nalbandian goes in as the favorite based on the H2H but I'm not so sure that will be a meaningful advantage at all. One never knows what to expect from either David or Juan Carlos. I think Nalby in 2 or Ferrero in 3. ;)

I'm wondering which one would have a better chance against Nadal in the semis on this surface. Have Nalbandian and Nadal ever faced?

Nadal has never played Nalbandian. That would be a facinating first encounter. I'm also eagerly awaiting the first Nadal/Safin match :)

Now now Deivid, we all know you're a die-hard Ferrero fan but there's no need to be that desperate.

me too, but they are both highly unpredictable, hard to say, but I slightly favour David.

IMO i think david will win in straight set but only if he win the first set (of course) i mean if he loses the first set he won't want to fight and spend too much energy in his match so he will let fererro win to focus on DC.

Nalbandian in three.

If Nalbandian is serious, then he will win, if he is thinking too much of Bratislava then he is out in 2 sets.

A few people have said now David will lose if he is thinking about Davis Cup but he could also lose if Ferrero plays well. If David was really concerned about Davis Cup and it was his major priority he could have done what Lleyton Hewitt did a couple of years ago and play no event between US Open and DC (Lleyton went something like 7 weeks without playing on the tour to focus on Davis Cup). I don't think David would win a second round match on Wednesday and suddenly have Davis Cup on his mind by Friday. The Davis Cup matches are not until late next week anyway and Juan Carlos has also been selected and has a decent chance of playing against Italy so he could also have a ready made Davis Cup reason if he loses. I don't think Davis Cup will be a factor at all for either of them.

Hey Raquel, the excuses trend in here is funnier alright! :p

If JC wins its only coz he was too arrogant and cause David is already thinking of the DC.
