Here we go again, Rafa in 3 against his soon to be turkey to defend his first hardcourt title!
Don't worry, doubles won't tire him out.Murray has been playing better all week, against much tougher opponents- Baghdatis, Ferrer and Nalbandian as compared to Soeda and Giraldo for Nadal. But he has another doubles match to play today, so he'll probably be gassed. I hoping Murray can pull it out in straights.
Yes, that was my thinking as well. Very surprising how one-sided it is, and Nadal certainly has even more of a mental edge having won their last 5 meetings. That being said, Murray was faced by unfavourable conditions in each of those matches - two on clay, one on Wimbledon grass, and two on ridiculously slow indoor and outdoor hard courts (London WTF and US Open).Interesting stat brought up by the OP, never realised the H2H between these two was so lopsided at 13-4, always thought it was a bit closer than that...
That is why he must simply focus on the day and the task at hand tomorrow.Murray is in a lose-lose situation here.
If he loses, he will be 0-5 this year against Nadal and people will call him a choker
If he wins the title, it will just re-confirm how much of a choker he is in slams
