:haha: :haha: at Ferrer, Almagro, Nole, Nalby all being in Fed's half.

Rafa's little section is quite tough, but the rest of his half is :lol: Apart from Davy :scared: Still, Rome is the fastest clay tournament so maybe we should be a little worried about all the hardcourt specialists.

Re: Rafa in Rome. Hell Draw!

:spit:

Federer's got Canas in the second round? :rolls:

Yes, Rome is fast, but except for JCF, most of the problem for those guys on clay is that they have no idea how to change direction. Speedy clay isn't going to assist with that problem. :shrug:

Re: Rafa in Rome. Hell Draw!

Nole's quarter makes my heart sing.

Re: Rafa in Rome. Hell Draw!

I'm still mad about the second clay tournement with Nole in Fed's half! The only clay tournement when I'd see him gladly in Rafa's half would be RG! But, anyway, Fed's half :haha: :haha: Is anyone missing?

Re: Rafa in Rome

Am I the only one saying Kiefer/JCF :scared: :unsure:

And Wawrinka, should be tired, no? :eek: :eek:

But first he's gotta get past the first hurdle. :scared: :unsure:

Re: Rafa in Rome

I think the draw is ok. the best quarter is the 3rd one (roddick and the piranha , wtf) but nole's quarter looks like a hell. Let' say he has a good chance to progress in Rome, the player that worries me most is Denko but Feli can make us get rid of him :devil:

Re: Rafa in Rome

Linda you always start these threads early :mad:. And I had a more interesting thread title in mind (well it can't get more unoriginal than 'Rafa in Rome') :ras: :lol:

Anyway, Federer's and Djokovic' draw is :spit: :rolls:

And since some people (who learnt from their mistakes in Barcelona) have already made their picks, here we go again:

How far will Rafa go in Rome? (100 points at stake)

1st – (Bye)
2nd -
3rd -
QF -
SF -
F - Metis, wildegirl05, yana
W- acionescu, Blaze-2004, cmurray, Getta, GuiroNl, hra87, Luvyoyoma1954, scarecrows, tennischeto, Xoman

Re: Rafa in Rome

A W

It's getting boring
Actually I don't agree. I see Tsonga there in Rafa's half. I wonder how far he will go. Will he be able to advance to meet Nadal in the semifinal? And if so, what would happen? I mean, obviously Nadal will win, but, what would be the score? (6-0 6-1? or 7-6 7-5?)
The only worry is Chela.

Also, it would be interesting to see what happens with Roger Federer in this tournament... But yes, Nadal is going to win. The surprise would be if he didn't.

Metis, thanks for writing down my prediction to this tournament for the MIT.

That's what I said after Miami, but people want to play :shrug:. Anyway it's only 3 tournaments left on clay (at most) and then we're back to the suspense of predicting the losses on grass and HC. :lol:

:ras: I wait until the draw. I don't like running the risk of someone who refuses to change the thread title twice a day starting the tournament threads.

What was your interesting title and I will change it instantly? Unless it was something boastful. We are with humble in the Rafa forum.

Anyway, Federer's and Djokovic' draw is :spit: :rolls:
Fed's draw is pretty easy, thought I did laugh aloud when I saw that Nole and Nalby and Ferrer were in his half. Can't see him not making the semis. Final actually.

And since some people (who learnt from their mistakes in Barcelona) have already made their picks, here we go again:
Hmm. I will decide after I see how he plays tomorrow.

What Would Rafa Do, Metis? Would he like the Eternal Clay King title when he has so much respect for every player in the draw? :eek:

Winner.

I assume you mean Rome, Hamburg and Roland Garros.
Well, Rafa will also play Stuttgart (tournament take place the week after Wimbledon).

Re: Taking one match at a time, trying his best, and staying with humble - Rafa in Ro

:bigcry: :bigcry:

What a terrible attitude :(

Getta :wavey:

Well Stuttgart is too far away; with the grass season the uncertainty about Rafa's results and therefore the interest for the MIT competition will increase :)
