Default Re: Barcelona Draw

A Nadal-Mugro QF is more likely. He owns both Ferrero and Nalbandian on clay.

Default Re: Barcelona Draw

Almagro needs a decent result on the clay, though he has been eating too many empanadas.

Default Barcelona: testing draw for Nadal

In his half: Gasquet, then Nalbandian; followed by either Davydenko or Wawrinka (both of them rather hot on clay right now).

He seems to be getting the tougher side of the draw every time, but hey.

As I said in a different post, if he's to win he needs to find his 2008 clay form. His current form reminds me of Nadal from 2/3 ago: returning short / placing the ball short allowing the opponent to hit a winner of off it.

Uncle Toni must have spotted that, no?

It is his first tournament on clay , i am sure Nadal will win all on clay this year , because he is playing bad like you say and didnt lose a set.

Surely he's not his best. But man, he's still producing ridiculously good shots when in danger (e.g. against Murray in 2nd set) and hasn't lost a set. He'll play into the clay season with improving form, I'm sure of that.

Of course he is not at his best yet. But the fact that he nevertheless hasn't lost a set yet is SCARY!!!
