Do you know rule 1 of tennis? What does Cañas have to hurt Nadal with?

And what did he have to hurt Fed-'He-who-has-a-complete-game'-error with?

Now don't tell me FEd is bad against grinders. In Rafa's case, half of the battles he has are in his mind. Why do we see him struggle against Kohlshribber and Starace? Also Ferrer was no POC today, no? Rafa will not be playing just anybody. He'll be facing 'the-other-guy-who-can-defeat-Fed'. That'll be playing on his mind.

That's what Canas has to hurt Nadal with. Not an ability to grind better than his younger opponent, but a mental resolve that mirrors Nadal. Can Nadal handle that in 6-2 6-2 as some predicted?

In other words you don't know Rule 1. Tennis is about match ups and that's the only thing about the game you really should try and understand.

Example: I am going to use Federer, Nadal and Berdych. Nadal struggles against Berdych. Berdych has problems with Federer. Nadal handles Federer. Just cause Federer is a better player than the other 2 doesn't mean he is always going to sail through. Nadal is better than Berdych, but does this relate to their match up.

Now don't tell me FEd is bad against grinders. In Rafa's case, half of the battles he has are in his mind. Why do we see him struggle against Kohlshribber and Starace? Also Ferrer was no POC today, no? Rafa will not be playing just anybody. He'll be facing 'the-other-guy-who-can-defeat-Fed'. That'll be playing on his mind.

See, this above proves you don't understand rule 1. It's how the respective players match up against each other and their games. If you have seen Nadal and Cañas matches, then it's very obvious what the problems are for Cañas, provided both play to their respective levels. What about Ferrer, he can play well for a while against Nadal and is hopeless against Federer, which just mirrors my previous point.

That's what Canas has to hurt Nadal with. Not an ability to grind better than his younger opponent, but a mental resolve that mirrors Nadal. Can Nadal handle that in 6-2 6-2 as some predicted.

Nadal's forehand to Willy's B/h that is not even close to a fair match up. Willy's backhand is excellent when it comes to passing shots and the like, but when he is rallying he hits it too short a lot of the time and prefers it when the ball is hit flatter, than with the heavy Nadal spin this and Nadal's forehand will be able to get the short balls from it and then Nadal is in control of the rallies. Just like what has happened in their other matches.

Cañas will have to be more aggressive than he is normally and that's a problem. Nadal's serve to the Ad court will be testing the backhand all the day and if Willy rounds around a lot of them to try and hit forehands, he better hit winning shots or he will be running from La Rambla to the Nou Camp.

Nice. Both your prose and your technical clarity about the game.

I think GWH should start opening up a beginner's seminar for every newbie that signs onto MTF as a rule before they start posting. His in depth knowledge of the game is second to none on this forum.

No problem at all. It took me a while to get that concept, but really there are only a few things you need to know about tennis. That's the main one about match ups. The other ones well unless your Karlovic, convert your break points. Nadal is a great example, he would have one of the best conversion rates on break points.

Of course, this is not 100 percent accurate all of the time. I mean Federer was 2-7 against Hewitt once and now Hewitt is the pigeon of Fed. It can change over time, just as it can continue on with the arse kickings.

For the record I want Cañas to win tomorrow, but I am very sceptical at best.

Except for the fact that his handle is obnoxious? Can't we keep politics OUT of tennis forum?

Boohoo about my username. As for politics not refering to tennis, that can be spoken about in Non-tennis.

Hey man you constantly inflict your left-wing drool on this forum with that handle. I personally find it obnoxious and insulting to ALL the forum members. :mad: :mad: :mad:

I must say I don't feel as though left-wing drool is being inflicted on me by George, and I'm not an ardent leftist by any means. I feel much more annoyed at people who think usernames like Hugh Jaas are particularly witty and amusing monikers, when I must have seen that name at least twice on other boards.

I actually quite like the way GWH's username adds to the notion that 'George W Bush' is a scumbag can be taken for granted.

I mean everyone in the world save for 49% of Americans think this anyway. I doubt find it obnoxious or insulting at all.

Now that I know you're a Nadal fan, I can safely root against the clayspinmonkey the rest of his career. Vamos Roger!

Come ON, how can we?
Nadal can't lose at home in front of thousands of crazy spaniards who yells "Rafa T'AASE LI SHLISHIA!!!"
He will even win playing with his right hand and normal shorts :eek:

The only thing that is worth arguing about is the score- i.e. will he less than five games or four games total :p

although I'm a Federer fan I'd love to see nadal win only because Nadal is setting new records, and I like watching tennis history unfold!
