a big server and hitter? uh-oh.... given nadal's standing against these type of players, and his current form, i'd say there's a huge chance for an upset...

bash away...

Well, that would be reaching rock bottom, but I don't think he'll lose just yet.

If Kendrick didn't have the balls at Wimbledon, I doubt he's grown them by now.

kendrick was the one who pushed nadal in wimbledon last year... if kendrick had not choked, he would've won...

exactly, this is slower court, higher bounce, I doubt he will even take a set... but most importantly he does not have the balls to beat nadal...

say what you want dude, i have the right to predict anyway. besides, is that all you could say? :p

and i think i have a valid point. if nadal wasn't having injuries and is in a slump right now, i'd say nadal would still win or find a way to even win ugly against this guy. but right now, his confidence is moot, his form is even in trouble.

you can alsi read wertheim's mailbag about it...

what I had to say is that we have discussed so much about this mathc today that we could spare a single thread about it

kendrick has the right game style, but isn't mentally tough enough to win

but i'm still hoping for an upset

Yes,Kendrick will beat Nadal!

No. He won't.

The only way Kendrick is beating Nadal is if Nadal has to retire injured.

Kendrick will never get to match point and win it

For all that Kendrick has that big serve, the rest of him is simply too inconsistent. I'm not going to say it's impossible, but I just don't see it happening. I think Rafa is going to surprise people, honestly.

let's see then... ;) if i was there in AO to watch it live, i wouldn't mind betting in kendrick's favor! ;)

kendrick will get 1 set at the most. nadal will reach the quarters

megadeth
01-12-2007, 09:32 PM
hey, it's just my side. if you feel otherwise, go ahead and say it but you guys don't have to be defensive about it :)

but i think it's safe to say that his chances of winning the whole shebang are lower than beating kendrick on day 1

People forget that although Kendrick found a lot of success on his own serve against Nadal, he was hopeless on return. Most of Nadal's service points lasted maybe about 3 or 4 strokes i.e. serve into the BH, weak return, inside-out FH by Nadal and then the point is just as good as over. Kendrick only had 2 break points in the entire match. I personally an easy win for Nadal unless Nadal is really struggling with his 1st serve giving Kendrick some hope on return.

Cmon, it nearly happened before...!
Don't really see it happening this time, though. The surface doesn't fit Kendrick's game as well as it did grass, and as Cheryl already noted, he misses consistency.
Only if Rafa loses his head he'll lose this match.

Nadal beat the Poo in straights in USO and will do the same to Kendrick.
