I could see Monaco taking a set given how poor Rafa's confidence is right now.

This matchup really comes down to who wears the pants in this relationship.

Nadal in 3.

We saw what he did to the French team, and that was right after he was mentally and physically destroyed by Djokovic.

Monaco is a good clay courter, but it's going to be 6-0 6-1 6-2 max.

Monfils wasnt on the team if I'm not mistaken. Not that it would have made any difference :sad:

Correct, Gael would've put up a much better fight than Gasquet/Tsonga. Wouldn't get bageled at least :o

Why Monaco over Nalbandian?

Genius plan actually

Monaco is the sacrificial lamb, I guess. They're hoping Delpo can beat Ferrer, the doubles team can (and probably will :o) beat Lopez/Verdasco and then they'll bring Nalbandian in for the first rubber on Sunday to play Ferrer.

Monaco finished good the year, though he won't win a set tomorrow.


Anyway no matter Nalbandian or Monaco loses tomorrow, the doubles seems better chance so better if Nalbandian won't be tired. :p

I am confused why Monaco instead of Nalbandian? maybe Nalbandian still out of shape lately? because of the two, Nalbandian has had more success against Nadal in the past

Monaco in 5. 4-6 7-5 6-4 2-6 12-10 in the best match we've ever witnessed...










...then Argentina go on to lose the next 4 matches.

too bad, I already had visions of FitDave's backhand humiliating Nadal's moonballs in front of a packed crowd in Spain... ;)

Gotta love the comments about Nalbandian at the Olé page. "Gordo choripanero" :lol:

The first rubber on Sunday would be Del Potro-Nadal.

Nadal in 3 sets. 6-4, 6-3, 6-2.

This can be close..
Monaco knows Nadal game inside out as his hitting partner and with Nadal's questionable form...he could definitely lose a set.

Took the words straight out of my mouth. Hope it works out for them.

If nalbandian really lives for a day when he'll win a DC , he would stop eating burgers and prepare himself for 2 matches . so GTFO and return to McDonalds

Good choice picking Monaco instead of Nalbandian. He's in better shape and appears to be in good form after Paris. Anyways I think it would be something like 6-2, 6-3, 6-3. Can't wait for the assgrab during the handshake :devil::devil::drool::drool: (no homo).
