i can't wait to see nadal face off with safin, hewitt, and roddick.
let's see if nadal is really that good against 2 power players especially on return of serve, and 1 player (hewitt) who runs around just as much on court...
what's your take on nadal's potential match ups with these 3?

My take is no chance against Roddick, 50-50 with Hewitt and easy win vs. Safin.

What is TMC?
Tennis Masters Cup? held after the regular season..in Nov. in China this year i guess
8 players Go
top 7 are locks
and 8 is a WC or a GS champ who is out side top 8 but inside top 20. i think thats how it works...someone correct me if im wrong.

yes, that's pretty much how it goes.
the thing is i'm yet to see a roddick-nadal or safin-nadal this year. even the hewitt-nadal was during the time that nadal didn't explode yet.
i just can't wait to see how it plays out with them playing. and TMC is a tourney where it's sure they will finally get to meet.

Nadal will destroy Roddick. Beat Hewitt. Lose to Safin.
Marat, Roger or Rafael will win this thing.

I'll reserve my judgements until after the US Open

Roddick - still can't see Rafa completely turning things around on hc from what occurred at last years USO. It'll be much closer, but I think Roddick may still win. As long as Roddicks serve is on, it'll be a very tough day for Rafa.
Safin - Rafa can definitely get a win here, unless Safin shows up mentally, then he could be in some trouble...I think Safin would handle his high bouncers fairly well.
Hewitt - the closest match of the 3, will just come down to who really wants it the most....I think 4-0 for Lleyton :)

Andy and Lleyton in the finals

Has everyone forgot about Roger???
I think Nadal will beat Hewitt comfortably, and i am more of a Hewitt fan!!
I think he is just a better version of Hewitt maybe a new improved model, bigger,stronger, improved Celebrations, i think Hewitt was the protatype and Nadal is the genuine article!!!!!
