Here it is, another episode of their rivalry. Not much need be said about it at this point. Neither are playing at their best which should make it balanced on Sunday. What do you think?

WWW Rome F: Novak Djokovic vs. Rafal Nadal

Unfortunately Djoker seems like he's not up to it physically this time which is understandable.

Dulls wins here but I still believe in Djokovic to stop him in RG.

Dull in 2.

Oh what logic... it's way more likely Djokovic wins Rome and Rafa beats him at RG. We've seen it already even during Djoko's peak.

Pretty hard to predict this one.. Rafa looked very impressive against Stefanos today, but i dont know if Rafa can to beat Novak mentally.
This match is huge for Rafa.. he need this to show himself that he can still play good tennis and beat Novak and his demons in his head

Why is Nadal ahead of Djokovic in the title, for what reason?

perfect time for Rafa to play him.

Just before RG, on a good run, against the more hard worked player on the week.

Circumstances say Nadal is much more physically ready for this one. Also, last year Novak was supposed to be, I'll quote, eviscerated by Nadal. He played competitive 2 sets against in-form Nadal. Hoping for speedy recovery and an epic tomorrow. Novak's hitting tonight is a good sign for tomorrow. He was well tested in QF and SF, which is, in certain aspects, good. Can't wait.

If it goes 3 Djoker might have a physical problem, but otherwise not. Will be fascinating to see if Nadal is mentally beaten before he even steps out on court, like in Oz. On clay that would be huge.

I assume Djokovic will be perfectly fit for the final, his game, however, is good but nothing impressive. Rafa will need to rediscover his self-belief to have a chance.

Djoker looked gassed af at the end of the sf match, but we all know he has always has something special in the tank for his great 2 rivals when he plays like a madman. So don't worry, tomorrow he will be sharp as fuck versus his lately pigeon.

I am going to a Vipassana retreat on RG final day. Hope this compensates for it. I have a funny feeling that this result will be the opposite of what happens in their final at RG. Nadal in 3 here.
