Ferret leads Mole 3-2 by clay courts :confused:

Djokovic will obviously win. Question is will it be 2 or 3 sets. I think he will get it done in 2 this time, as he has had plenty of time to get fired up now. Playing Nishikori is probably a good prep for playing Ferrer as well. I predict 2 close sets.

This may be another long 3 sets ... similar as last years QF

if No1e could mange to win in two easy sets, that would be great before the final .. but I doubt it

Well, Djokovic has never beaten Ferrer in straights on clay, so there's that :cool:

Nole is not playing well with beyond par RoS (compared to his standards) and a lot of groundstrokes hit on the back foot so generally wide.

But he managed every time to counterpush and find the extra step to have his strikes back in deciders.

His offensive game is off but his head and guts are definitely on. Just have a look on him roaring when breaking in decider.

THEN last 10 years showed us you can be the clay goat with guts and a far more defensive game. So who knows ?

To the record, since Stefan birth, Nole is 36/0 in big events, it will end one day or another but it is rather impressive.

Time for Ferrer to get another spanking. But it will probably go 3

If Djokovic loses it will be confirmed that he's scared of in-form Nadal :eek:
He'll have to face Nadal at Roland Garros either way and the world will see 10-3 slam h2h.

No1e in 3. He likes giving away sets in Rome. Nothing can be done about it.
