It was already gonna be tough for Rafa, after today I'm not too confident. He did a hell of a lot of running today on a surface which gives his body problems.

No prediction, hopefully Rafa has enough left in the tank.

Rafa in 2... same old history as Roma 2007 when he played almost 3 hrs and a half in SF vs Kolya and then he destroyed Gonzo in the final

Does anyone have eastern standard time for this final (US and Canada)? Thanks.

He always has enough left in the tank.

DAVAI MISHA! You can do it.
Exactly :rolleyes:

I'm still cheering for Misha though :) We can always hope!

Rafa. As it's already been said here, he used to play good final matches after tough semifinals (Monte Carlo 06, Rome 07). Somehow it's hard for me to believe in top form Youzhny - after all, it's been only Malisse and Cilic, no disrespect

I think Nadal will win this in 2 or 3. I know he played a long match but please, fatigue shouldn't be a problem for two reasons:

1 - It's the first week of the new season.
2 - Nadal is extremely fit

Raf in two, as fatigue shouldn't be any problem for him and he looks very fit indeed. Misha is too inconsistent in his level of playing.

But as I like both of these players I won't commit suicide if I'd be totally wrong here. :cool:

Anyone remember Madrid QF: Nalbandian def. Nadal 6-1 6-2 :wavey:

Nadal never gets tired on clay...he does get tired on hardcourts! :wavey:

That loss had not so much to do with Raf being tired, but rather with Nalby playing otherworldly good. It's quite okay to give credits when due... not all losses of our favs are because that fav didn't play at his best, sometimes the opponent just was the better player!
