Looks like these two could meet in the final of Queens tournament this sunday. Just wondering what you would expect should it come to this match up?

any result will do. I favor neither. One is a basher, while the other is a topspin monkey.

I'll pick Nadal in 3.

Roddick will come to the net any chance he gets.
6-3 6-4 Nadal.

anyone see footage of nadal playing at queens. So far I think hes adapting well. Coming to the net alot more and hitting winners more often. People dont realize how smart of a player nadal is. I think hes adapting well to the grass already. and should be a threat at wimbledon as well as queens.The scary thing is that hes better than he was last year.

well as much as I don't like either one of them,I have to say that Roddick plays well on grass no question and that Nadal is rapidly improving on grass also.He is serving a lot better than he did last year and his volleys have improved a lot and I will say are a lot better than Roddick's volleys.
Nadal can block the serves back to Andy,forcing him to come at the net and Nadal can pass him with a forehand or a backhand.
Roddick's game is the same,go for your backhand;
then your forehand
then he'll hit a forehand or a backhand of his own or make his way at the net;he is predictable to say the least. If anyone can watch the clip of his match at the Aussie against Federer they'll see that.

Nadal wins 6-4 7-6 (7-5). Roddick won't be able to break Nadal. Vamos!

As long as Nadal gets a play on Roddick's serve, Nadal will win it. In 2.

Nadal has to face Mahut first, and then, the real challenge: Karlovic

i reckon nadal in straight sets; it seems as if roddick is doomed either way

if he comse to the net; rafa has some wicked passing shots

if he rallies from the baseline; he will get trashed by nadal

thats my 2 cents =D

Karlovic-Nadal would be nice! Think I 'll catch the semis..
isn't Mahut gonna play Ljubicic first though? According to Yahoo Sports they havn't finished their match yet.

oh my all Roddick is doing against Cilic is slicing,when when receiving or returning:shock:
I'm not sure all this slicing is going to work against a better mover and a better returner
Cilic is not a great mover at all and is missing a lot of first serves in this match when he's not hitting dfs when not hitting his forehands out or netting them.
When Cilic is serving,man those serves got power.

at least his slice is better than his inside-out forehand that throws him 5 miles outside the sideline. :p

The way Nadal hits on grass is so different from the way he hits on clay.
He also learnt to follow through his racket to the other side of his body to have flat and penetrating shots. I think he is adapting to grass very well.

i can puke to many different single words, here is another one, Lohan

i would also like to make a request, would everyone quit saying vamos on this thread as it is leading to multiple vomiting episodes which isn't healthy, just ask nicole richey...

Anyone see Jokervich doing his impression of the rafa serve?

Funny stuff but but not sure if rafa would like it.
