None.

They are all mediocre players in his half of the draw. Maybe a more realistic question is which players will win sets against Rafael. :lol: :lol:

However, if he loses somebody should remind me how insulting I was abbout the players in his half of the draw. I remain confident that I am correct, but next 2 weeks will answer question.

Does that mean that one of the guys you quoted is no human? ;)

and since all three are in the other half, that leaves no one that can beat him.

I thought that the "two humans" in your post was on purpose:

two humans = Moya and Nalbandian
+
one superhuman = Federer

I think Rafa could beat them on any court. The days of Blake beating Rafa are history.

I don't know. It happened just 2 months ago. I see no evidence to suggest Rafa has improved on hard courts since then. Also, from how close parts of their match were I think Soderling would provide a real challenge for Rafa on a quick court. He was hitting loads of winners even on the red stuff, maybe if the surface was faster he could've done real damage.

To clean the pigsty out you need a bulldozer and sadly the only thing available to the players concerned is a rockhammer.

Only on indoors and grass, i think Rafa would expose Soderling's movement on outdoors hardcourts.

No way, Ferrer (most probably) or Verdasco would be there.

C'mon Ferrer. Put a bet on him at the start of the tournament at 33/1 :)
