Finally.

I hope he manages to defend all his points (or better win them all :D) despite the :mad: schedule.

Phew!

Is it poor form to hope that Novak has a really shitty run on clay this season? :confused:

Because I do. :devil:

MC is starting in 2 days. No MIT anymore? :sobbing: Is it over? Or nobody doubts the outcome therefore no use for MIT during clay season?

yeah, where is the MIT? well in case it goes ahead, put me down for Nadal to win ... Which is obvious considering Nadal has won 107 matches out of 110 in the past 3 seasons on clay.

Regarding the draw ... Nice one: Djokovic on Federer's side je je :)

Metis has been AWOL. But she is back now :rocker2:

Put me down for SF.

The draw is ridiculously bottom heavy. Davydenko's quarter is pretty tough, and Ferrer is probably the hardest QF opponent Rafa could have drawn. Nole's quarter is a cakewalk, unless Murray shows some clay form.

Easy win for Nadal.

He wont drop a set
Yes, I believe so. Vamos Rafa! :rocker2:

Oh well. I have to disagree here. If we were objective, we should easily admit that the heaviest quarter of the draw is the first one. In particular, the second 1/8 makes all the difference: Robredo, Wawrinka, Soderling, Stepanek and Nalbandian. :eek:

Now is not the right time to start questioning Rafa's ability winning on clay. No draw should be tough for him.

Metis put me down for Champion. :bigclap:

Vamos :rocker2:

Yeah, I still disagree. Clay is far from Nalby, Stepanek and Sod's favourite surface and, other than Nalby, none are big tournament players.

Compare that to Davydenko's quarter - Davy, Almagro, Monaco, Andreev, Chela, Acasuso.
