If Jo plays anything even remotely close to his best tennis he will squash Rafa like a bug.

gotta love how all the Nadal fans have him beaten already

the fact is, he has a chance and everyone knows it

of course, by winning... he stuns the world & adds to his legendary spartan

make me sick the lot of you.

My vote went to Tsonga in three. He's something of a loose cannon though and Nadal has stable nerves.

On current form Tsonga should win. It's Tsonga though so he could very easily lose.

As much as it makes sense for Tsonga to blow Nadull off the court, Tsonga's very susceptible to clownish performances and I wouldn't be surprised to see him going down to Nadull, unfortunately.

Because he's playing in his home country? He also lost to Clement and struggled against Kim in Lyon. But well ok, that wasn't a masters, still don't trust Tsonga.

I actually think Rafa could defeat Jo...even in straight sets. Will he? Its not like Tsonga is incapable of laying an egg. And he knows: Rafa will not go down without a fight.

How can so many people here be convinced of an easy win from J-Tsong? You damn well know Nadal can step up his game when he needs to, and Tsong is a major choker. Too close to call.

the crowd will bring Tsonga on top of this

the crowd + defending too many points (extra motivation)

Nadal can't lose points from this point anymore (he played QF last year as I remember).
It's most likely Tsonga in 3, but, at the end, you never know with both of them.

there is something interesting

Tsonga wasnt really tested here it was just an execution in his first two matches while Nadal got huge confidance injection after 2 crazy matches like this...and if not tired can build on it
this is just a speculation as i really cat see Nadal clinching this...Tsonga turned some matches around last year in Bercy and wont go away easily

first set is key for the clay monster. if he takes the first set, he takes the match.

oh, that was what sawan repeated so many times before.:p and once he stopped.

Nadal often won the matches even if he lost the first set. He needs more time than others to get into match. Today was the example, but many times before it wasn't. It was often like this: you can win the first set against Nadal, but he will tear you in pieces in the next two.:p

i hear ya bascule. you make perfectly good sense and on the average it is true what you are saying.

this time it may be different however. his rhythm is way off and his once great movement is significantly diminished for now. that also means he is very low on confidence.

you may have seen a bit more of a subdued look from him. he doesnt look all that happy at the moment.

this is why he needs the first set. it effectively furnishes him with some confidence and on the other side of the ledger, it also dents tsonga`s spirit a little.

that is what has to happen if he is to win this match.

At this point, looking so hurt, Nadal needs the first set more than ever. You got the point. But also remember, he already defended the last year's points, he's not so pressed for the next match. Nadal won two very closed match in last two days, he saved lot of MP/BP too. That should give him extra confidence tomorrow...and his form gets better as tour passes. Like the last time. I also think crowd won't scare him tomorrow at all. He has chances, but lot of things depend on Tsonga.

clay monster has taken him down the last 2 times they have played so that may well be on tsonga`s mind.

with that said, if tsonga serves at close to 70% or better, it will be a very long day at the office for the clay monster.

dont think so. you overestimate tsonga.

one other thing: these frenchies are cunning bastards. they know that nadal had that 3 hour 15 minute match last night and had a 2 hour and 15 minute match this evening. so what do they do?

those pricks schedule the 2nd match of the day tomorrow to be the tsonga vs clay monster match.

and they also take care of monfils. monfils played today during the day so he gets a night match for tomorrow.

they also fucked murray over too. murray had to play until 2 am last night and probably didnt get to bed until 4 am or 5 am. so they scheduled him to play an early match during the day. taking nothing away from stepanek who played a good match but murray was flat and beat.

Nadal is not concerned about defending last year's result, his number two ranking is safe because Djokovic will loose his Masters' Cup points at the end of this week. Nadal IS concerned about the year-end number one ranking and for that reason there is plenty of ranking point pressure on him in this match.

Nothing wrong with it, it's just that Novak-Nadal match up better and consequently have high quality matches. Tsonga-Novak matches are not highly entertaining imo. More often than not it's just one of the two that plays really well. Very rarely do they both play great at the same time. Nadal-Novak, more often than not, both play their best tennis when they face each other.

it was a fluke win by Rafa, unfortunately he is back to his old self, playing like a tool, hitting to Nole's good side and just as passive as he has been most of this summer.
Love you Rafa but its time for some changes in your game, its hard watching you get hammered out there.:(
