Better for Roland Garros, Nadal v Federer or Nadal v Soderling?

The hype surround Nadal v Federer is always high, but then again the hype surrounding a Nadal v Soderling rematch would be huge, I can't decide which I'd rather see in the Final.

The risk is if Soderling beats Federer there would be a good chance Soderling may lose in the semis. That would really mess up the Final and make it dull. Whereas Federer will definitely win his semi.

I'd prefer Soderling-Djokovic final instead?

I would prefer to see Nadal v Soderling. Grudge match after last year and after Soderling mocked Nadal in 2007. In addition, Soderling has a better chance against Nadal than Federer does. It would be a much more interesting match than Nadal v Federer, where (let's be realistic here) the result is almost a foregone conclusion.

Having said that, I always cheer for Roger and I'm still holding out hope that a miracle will happen and he will beat Nadal in the final. :)

I cheer for Federer. But I have to admit that Söderling-Nadal would probably make for the more exciting match. Söderling-Djokovic would also be great.

I'm pretty sick of the Fedal matches obviously...But not just because Fed tends to lose but also because they happen the exact same way everytime:

- FH to BH rinse and repeat....
- Fed finally has the chance to turn the match around but, oooohhh...nervous...UE...

I like the variation of the Fedal matches, because we don't know if it will be 6-1 6-3 6-0, or 6-2 in the fifth set. Either a beatdown or a thriller. Interesting. Like even at Wimbledon it looked like a beatdown when Nadal led 6-4 6-4 before the rain, but then it turned into one of the closest finishes in history.

Although I want Federer to win I wouldn't be that sorry if he lost. Federer (and Djokovic too) have tried and repeatedly failed against Nadal on clay. At 2-10 Fed is almost Nadal's clay turkey and Djokovic will be turkified in the SF, making it to 0-10. It may be time to give someone else a go.

Actually if Nadal is to make the final then I would prefer him to play Berdych or Soderling as both won't bend over.

Soderling vs Nadal for sure. Nadal vs Fed isn't entertaining tennis.

Me too. Nadal can get his revenge and prove he is the king of clay once and for all ;)

A Fedal final would be for the best. The results on the courts may ultimately be lopsided but let us enjoy the drama of their matches while it lasts.

i would prefer a nadal-soderling final, but i think there's no way soderling can beat federer if he keeps playing like he played in the past days..

by the way i'll keep hoping that the toad will reach the final, i'm fed up with fedal finals

Hilarious if Federer beat Soderling? No way, Federer is 10 times better than Soderling, he should win.

I'd settle for a Fed-Bellucci final :hearts: :)

I hope Nadal's next few opponents are:
QF Verdasco
SF Djokovic
F Federer
This lineup is all the guys Nadal is used to killing. It's when Nadal plays less familiar opponents that there could be trouble.

He proved that several years ago :wavey:

Maybe it is more worthwhile beating Soderling rather than Federer, because after all Soderling DID beat Nadal at Roland Garros. Under any other circumstances defeating Federer would mean a lot more.

Hopefully, the toad will eat piggy alive should they meet in the final.

What if Federer meets Nadal in the final, who should eat alive then?

It'd be more interesting to see Nadal - Soderling. I wonder what tactics Rafa would implement against the Swede, who already knows how to beat Rafa on this surface. It's just a matter of execution for him. As for Federer - Nadal, no thanks.

Soderling-Nadal.

But since I want Roger to keep his consecutive SF record going, can't help but support Roger here.

Pretty sure Fed already beat Rafa on the surface too :scratch:

When Soderling won it was because Nadal only hit the ball to the service box. I doubt Soderling could win if Nadal kept the ball deep.

No, not at Roland Garros. Look at the 2008 score especially, makes it seem impossible.

This 2nd set is really important for Nadal, this Bellucci guy is hitting cold winners. But should be ok, Bellucci is hitting unforced errors enough.

Soderling was crushing the ball that day, thus taking away the time Nadal needs in order to generate spin, depth and power in one stroke.

Please don't try to analyze tennis again; your brain might implode.

Sorry, my bad, need to learn better, always thought RG was held on clay and didn't have its own surface.

Nadal and Soderling with Nadal getting his revenge. Soderling matches up better with Nadal on the dirt then Federer does so I think we would see a much better quality match anyways

I prefer Federer-Djokovic.
Not because I diskile Nadal, just because the match result is umpredictable.
Federer in clay vs Djokovic it's something new.

But there's no way Nole beats Nadal.

that's not going to happen because the french tournament organizing clowns are terrified as shit and wouldn't dare to draw djokovic in fed's half.......they have to bluff and entertain the retarded sheep world over, draw them to the final to make bucks.......

and you might be knowing that nadal wouldn't allow djokovic to enter the final as long as he is in his half.......

and they must be terrified that Hewitt draws Federer too since he's been in Nadal's half in 4 of the last 5 years at the French. Soderling being in Federer's half in 4 out of the last 5 slams must be part of a global conspiracy too. seriously, the draws are random.

nadal soderling of course!

if its nadal vs federer, we already know who the winner will be

would be very interesting if soderling could meet nadal in the final
