Djokovic / Davydenko / Benneteau have faced players who retired (Horna / Saretta / Martin)

That's good from Federer.

And not so good from Nadal.

Out of Nadal's 12h 16min, around 8h-8.5h were in the last 3 days against PHM & Hewitt...

Nadal always takes longer than most other players...certainly longer than Federer, yet it never affects him one bit. So I wouldn't read a lot into this. Thanks for the figures though.

I think that is due to the pace he plays at between points. That's part of the reason I tape his matches and play them later, or watch them while I am actually doing something else, plenty of time between points to get things done :angel:

Same here. I tried watching the first set today with nothing else in hand but it was so irritating I started filing some papers!

No one seemed to mention that 4 of the players are in the top 4. For the French Open this is huge becasue usually top players like roddick and hewitt don't do too well at this event. But these two are no longer in the top 4. In semis maybe 3 of the players may be in top 3.

I wouldn't worry about Rafa. He seemed fine today.

Actually we're used to Nadal winning much more comfortably on clay than he has been this past week. Look at both his and Federer's roads to the Rome final, for instance. Nadal breezed all the way through while Federer struggled more. But that's not the case so far in Paris.

Last time it happend was in 1985:

1. John McEnroe
2. Ivan Lendl
3. Jimmy Connors
4. Mats Wilander

Wilander over Mac and Lendl over Conners in the semis, then Wilander beat Lendl in the final :yeah:

Actually that is very intresting becuase time on court is very important. Nadal have spend quite some time on court and if he should face Federer he suerly needs to be fit.
I know that Nadal is very strong and fit but he is human and that will affect him if he reaches the Final.

Didn't it happen during the 2005 Australian Open? Or am I retarded. Safin vs Federer and Roddick vs Hewitt, weren't they the top 4 players in the world at that time?:scared: I know at least Federer, Roddick and Hewitt were, it's Safin who I'm not entirely sure of.

Wow! What a final that would have been...two of the best RG performers of all time facing off. Although, judging by the scoreline, I guess the 1987 final was better? Anyone remember these and can tell us about them?

Nadal does take a lot longer than most even in routine wins because of the pace bwtween points and because the rallies are longer in general. He is not looking to end the point too quickly and his opponent wants to but can't.

Nalbandian and Federer figures updated on 1st post

yes it probably happened there but we were talking about the French Open here. Roddick and Hewitt are players who are comfortable on hard surfaces whereas in French open, you usually have at least one mediocre player on hard surfaces but who is a clay court specialist. So having 4 top players in the semis (I am ahead of myself :) ) is a rare thing indeed rarer than with the other grand slams.

now in lasts rounds, the physical condition begins to be an important factor.

Here it's the detail of the time on court for each one of the semifinalists:

FEDERER: 10h 41'

NALBANDIAN: 13h 32'

LJUBICIC: 13h 39' ( + 3 doubles matches)

NADAL: 14h 10'
Nadal's been playing for 14h? :eek:

Out of 14 hours, I read on rolandgarros.fr that Nadal spent 1 hour picking his ass, another hour checking his socks and about 55 minutes wiping his arms... that's about 11h05 of effective play, which is not THAT much more than Fed 10 hours ;)

diference between Nadal and Federer = 4h 40'

diference between Nadal and Federer = 4h 40'

Means absolutely nothing considering that a) he is like the energizer bunny and b) he takes so much time between points

To put it another way,

Fed 1149 points played
Rafa 1202 points played

Less than a 5% difference.
