Well, to be fair, before the tournament his draw looked like it could have been slightly challenging with Murray/Berdych in the semis. But those guys failed, so...

And you insist they are not? Gulbis lost to Chardy in 1st round. Nalba was in bad form actually, barely made it through De Voest in 5 sets, what did you expect from him? Berdych lost in 1st round too, Llodra was on fire. If there is any conspiracy to blame, it must be the Frenchies! :devil:

Davydenko and Isner are not threats for Nadal in any case and Delpo could have been on Federer's half.

Be serious. Nadal has sailed, through no fault of his or the USTA, but he has sailed into the semis. I've been mildly disgusted by it, but I am determined to be philosophical. He's not losing to Youzhny, who's having a great tournament, and who has had an easy draw himself. If he does, he's a mug.

Youzhny just played a 5 setter and he hasn't won in straight sets since Round 1. I doubt that he will put up much of a fight.

If Youzhny wins this its got to be the "beat-down" style performance of bagels and bread-sticks, because if he gives Nadal a look-in I bet Nadal will find a way to turn it around and win through desperation of history.

good point. Thats what I was thinking. He has played two day matches at Ashe. ANd their match is going to be a day match being the first semifinal since Fed-Djo is going to be the marquee matchup which will follow next. However, I dont think Rafa has come this far to lose to this guy.

HarryMan
09-10-2010, 06:25 AM
It is quite obvious either Nadal is winning the whole thing or losing to Federer in the final. I will be shocked if Djokovic or Youzhny win their respective semi finals. It will end with the two best players playing for the trophy this Sunday. I would tip Nadal due to the match up and his level of play this tournament but Federer will be his toughest opponent. Likewise for Federer as well.

what do you predict the scoreline will be?

nadal_slam_king
09-10-2010, 07:04 AM
At one stage there was 4 breaks in a row in the Waw/Youzhny match. You can't get away with losing your serve so much with Nadal, because its so hard to break his serve. So I'm not convinced Youzhny is playing at a high enough level. But then again Youzhny may matchup better with Nadal than he matched up with Waw. It's a matchup issue more than a quality of play issue sometimes.

Actually Youhzny was probably one of the best "threat" availabe in his draw

To be fair, the only players stopping Nadal are the other guys ranked in the top 5 in the world. Three of them were in the other half of the draw (Federer, Djokervic and Soderling) and that only left Murray in Nadal's half, and he threw a hissy fit and went home early last week. So Nadal will make the final and then get his first match in the last two weeks where he knows he's going to have to fight for it.

As for Youzney, if he serves like he did against Wawrinka this is straight sets for Nadal something like 6-2, 6-1, 6-3. If he picks up his serve there might be a match on. But like so many matches at the US Open, serving well is half the battle.

Nalbandian certainly doesn't need to play his best to beat Nadal, the way he was playing would have been enough to beat this Rafa, but I doubt he would have beaten Ferrer, considering his poor performance at the USO this year.

Don't compare Youzhny to Tsonga :o

He was having a tournament of his career and was untouchable. Nothing Rafa could do. Youzhny isn't even as good now as he was a few years ago and Nadal is better. I predict one tough set, then mental and physical fatigue will set in and Youzhny will make too many UE, losing 2 remaining sets routinely.

this tournament is crucial for nadal's legacy. he is playing for high stakes.

Clearly, a career slam is what will motivate Nadal the most. Too much pressure though. But Nadal will definitely go for it. For his part, Youzhny has nothing to lose. No pressure at all. This could make the difference this afternoon. If Youzhny wins, I can imagine Tio Toni immediately issuing a statement declaring the Russian persona non grata, i.e., he will not be allowed to step on the Spanish soil without an entry visa. Worse, the Spanish King might declare war on Russia in the event of a Youzhny win. Just me.
