Default Re: Rafa in IW - Come and play the guessing game!

My prediction:
He will do quite well here if he is not injured. I give him a FINAL. He has always played better in IW. 2006 SF, 2007 Winner. The court suits his game - not fast enough, high ball bouncing. Weather suits him. Hot dry climate. I have no reason to believe he will lose early. He lost the previous year in QF in Dubai too and then won IW. The draw however will be the key factor. And losing early in Dubai may give him some more time to adapt and to rediscover him form.

In fact Rafa defended absolutely all points up until IW from the prevoius year even he added some more.
If he loses early before QF or SF we should worry.

I'm with Hema. I say semifinals. I'm feeling optimistic today.

Doesn't matter. That idiot Clay Death has sealed in Roger's victory with the "who will take Roger out" poll.

Rafa should have no problems reaching the quarters.

Anything above that is a bonus.
