Hewitt or Nadal?

Hewitt is 3-0 over Nadal...maybe because they have similar defensive game? las time they played was in AO 2005 and it wasa Hewitt victory (5 7 6 3 6 1 6 7 2 6)

could he beats Nadal on clay?

nadal will win, 7-5, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2

I hope Rafa can beat him!! ;) btw, will be a great match!! :bounce:

i can imagine it being a good match, but at the same time hewitt hasnt played any heavyweight claycourter, and as it is his only 2nd clay tourny, i dont see it happening. Nadal will win for sure, but i could see hewitt giving him a little scare.

Nadal is going to rip him a new one

I hope Rafa can win! :woohoo:

But I have to give Lleyton credit - he's come back nicely here. :yeah:

Rafa :bounce:

Rafa will be tired from his 5hr match, hewitt will not...anything can happen...

06-03-2006, 09:42 PM
I think Rafa can just edge him out

06-03-2006, 09:52 PM
Hewitt all the way... he will be the one to break down Nadals game... although i think it will be 5 sets

06-03-2006, 09:59 PM
i made this prediction long time ago, hewitt in 4 or 5

06-03-2006, 10:05 PM
rafa..i think if he was able to take hewitt to five sets at the beginning of last yr at hewitt's home slam,when he was still relatively unknown-i.e had only one title back then...then i don't think he'd have much problem making the h2h 1:3 at roland garros this yr.

the only thing that is against rafa is his long match that he played today but rafa is very fit and he has a day off tomorrow so it shouldnt be too much of a problem...at least i hope not!!

Nadal, in 4 sets, but Lleyton will give him a good run for his money. Then whip him again in the grass and hardcourt season. :p I don't see Nadal's invincible aura lasting far into the second part of the year with the other specialists coming into play. On clay though...well, that's another matter. *roots for Lleyton anyway*

hewitt in 5

i didnt know that hewitt had such a better head to head
should be a very interesting match
I cannt think that hewitt on clay can pose too much problems for rafa
what i saw from Mathieu, the power & accuracy on his serve
I cannt see hewitt doing that
Rafa need to recover fast 3 2omorow
