Nadal should only win easily if Delpo is tired, although he'll definitely win it either way

I donīt see as easy match as you think. NAdal destroyed Monaco yes, but Monaco is just some clay-courter with no weapons against Rafa, it was 100% that Rafa canīt loose. But Delpo has the game to bother Rafa, is tall , should handle his topspin, also he likes Rafaīs slow game, has more time for his shots, especially his huge FH bombs. I think if Delpo will be physically fit, he can win that match. He take Ferrer to 5th sets and Ferrer was playing hell of a match, and i think Ferrer has better ROS than Rafa, so if Delpo will serve big he can win why not. OF course he wonīt beat Rafa in 5 sets, because his stamina is how we can see not good enough for that kind of match on clay, but if he will serve big and play agressivly with not many UE - close straight sets win or 3:1 for Delpo in 3-3 and half hours can be done.

Well, Delpo has won one more set over Djokovic on clay than Nadal this year, so who knows:p

Really want Rafa to celebrate his win like hell.
I want him to lay on the ground again (or maybe even cry out happiness.
Happy that Argentina won the doubles today.
Finally Rafa can finish the Davis Cup.
It would also give him more confidence finishing it himself that winning 3-0 with the doubles winning it.
This will give him a lot of confidence for next year.
He went for his shots against Pico so I hope that he does the same tommorow as well.
Vamos

At most, I can only see Del Potro taking a set off Nadal.

He looked good out there against Monaco, Nadal.

And I will laugh at the idiots of MTF who thought in the past that Del Potro was one of the biggest threats to Nadal on clay LOL.

I'm scared. Del Potro put up a pretty good fight in Wimbledon.
I think Rafa will win in 4, I hope I'm right :)

i was looking forward to this match and was hoping spain lost the doubles so we could have a meaningful rubber with everything on the line. And remember, they are not playing for themselves - they are playing for their country and national pride. I think we will see 100% from both of these champs. Cant wait for tomorrow.

The betting line seems to think that delpo has no chance. The payout is 700% for a delpo win and only 8% for a nadal win. Now while I understand Rafa is the strong favorite but definitely not by this margin. I think delpo has a 33% chance of winning this match (based on their prior meetings and Rafa's recent form). He has the power and if anybody could do it its him.

But Nadal is going to be as pumped as he could possibly be. He has never won the winning point for his country in prior davis cup final wins. Delpo cried after his loss to Ferrer - sometimes that kind of emotions makes you more determined when the next opportunity comes along. I definitely do not expect this to be a routine easy win for Rafa.

I see the match going into a fourth set with Rafa leading 2 sets to one. And what a set will that turn out to be filled with set points and match points galore
So whats gonna be the outcome Rafa in 4 or do we see set#5? I don't know :) ..Tune in tomorrow.

Rafa wins in 4. VAMOS RAFA! :)

Still :sad: that Delpo lost against Pics...would have made the tie so much more interesting with ARG leading 2-1 against ESP. Oh wells...best of luck to Delpo against Rafa as he will definitely need it. :yeah:

I was hoping for an upset, but with an exhausting 5 setter against Ferrer that he lost, I don't see the big guy winning a set. A shame he couldn't have won yesterday in 4- that might have made all the difference.

Last year Djokovic exploded after his DC win. That seemed like a turning point that marked most of 2011.

After his DC loss, he was downed again (literally and game-wise).

I hope it's Nadal's turn to win DC and take the momentum into 2012.

(I know I may be hoping too much, but it would be really nice to see that happening.)

Nadal in 3. :bdaycake:
