it would be nice if fyrstenberg/matkowski could win their first point, but knowles/nestor going to the semis anyway....
and also good luck to davydenko, hope he beats nadal.....
the other match doesn't matter anymore, maybe a point for robredo....?!? ;)

It's not carpet, it is an indoor hc similar to Madrid TMS which Nadal won last year. I say Nadal is the favourite.

i like both..so its tough to decide,...go rafa i guess

JustmeUK
11-17-2006, 10:31 AM
again it's going to hinge on Nadal's opponent. Nadal is playing his usual 5-10 feet behind the baseline. Davydenko however is playing pretty close to the baseline n taking a lot of shots early and running Nadal around as well as wrong footing him.

really the question is can Davydenko keep this up for long enough? I am going to say yes. Davydenko leads 3/4 service return stats on the ATP tour and on the (last break points won) he's 2nd.

If I am to say who's gonna win, I'd pick Kolya. Perfect display
Some guy is better from the baseline than Rafa. Would you believe that? Davy just plays smarter, he knows how to catch Rafa wrong footed etc.

JustmeUK
11-17-2006, 10:42 AM
actually Davydenko is showing another way of playing Nadal beside hitting him off the court. he's playing him close to the baseline and placing shots with surgical precision unlike Blake who was hitting Nadal off the court. I'm really admiring Nikolai's shot placement today - my only concern would be if he can keep this up. against James, he was playing similarly and then somehow it all went wrong probably because James started to really hit some stunning shots. Nadal however is NOT a shotmaker and Nikolai isn't going to be rushed as much. no one should estimate what Nadal brings to the table though - a rapid dog would struggle to match Nadal for tenacity and sheer madness of will in chasing shots down.

Not carpet, did you read my post? ;) If you still think it's a bad surface for Rafa, I don't agree.

Yes and probably more than you. Davydenko is top 4 on carpet. Nadal is not.

Roger The Great

Wow, I thought that was the beginning of the end for Davy. He's hitting the ball extremely well today. And his serve has been much better than I've seen from him. Good job, Davy.

Too many UE's by Kolya, he should've taken this set 6:2 already.

that's probably a little unfair. he's playing against the a guy whose made defence his biggest strength, whose seeded higher than him and who he needs to beat to advance. the pressure isn't exactly small :)

Amazing, the guy lives and dies on his opponent's ue's.

one reason why I find nadal's play boring. the match is always made interesting by who he faces.

sure.. I never said Nadal wasn't fit to be world no 2 :P I am simply stating what he is good at doing n what I want to watch.. feel free to watch whatever u want mate :).

the point I am making is all the dogged resistance is only fun to watch against a shot maker. put him on court with another counter puncher and it becomes an objective in seeing who can outlast whom. all the fun of watching my clothes go around and around in the wash
