Re: Friday-Order of play and scores
I apologie in advance, but sometimes betting odds are a way to analyze the match. Nadal is very much the underdog (2.50) in this "pure talent challenge", he faces a big name, he face a home crowd favourite. It was Hewitt just some weeks ago and he responded as the champion he almost is, he went really close to win that epic battle. But now the opponent is not that good mentally, and Rafa this time can play on his favourite surface. Gaston, a player i love for his backhand and simply for the nice guy he is, might be tired but is not gonna concede this easily, I then predict a 2-1 for Nadal. Call this betting prediction or simply tennis prediction...as you wish.
Tytta, I hope you ll get it in TV, this must be a great match to watch, lefty Nadal forehands versus Gaudio clean backhand...what a duel!
