    Yes, Rafa cranks it up, but Djoko's a lot tougher, now. I predict the 2nd set will be decided in a tie-breaker.

    Let's see if Djokovich can break back. Seems unlikely.

    What did I say yesterday? I told you it wouldn't be close. Soul number 76 is Davydenko. :)

    He kept his streak intact by taking the Joker to the woodshed.

    Luckily for djokovic Nadal didnt seem to have the killer instinct.He had 12 break points but converted only 4,this could have been a double bagle.
    67 points won by Nadal to Djokovic's 46,Nadal faced only 1 breakpoint and hit 30 winners and only 12 UE.
    Amazing

    BTW,Djokovic was "in control" all the way

    Well said. Now how many games will number 76, I mean Davydenko get in his straight set loss tomorrow? I say perhaps 4 or 5 games. :-D

    Now YOU have really blown my mind. lol. He gave up 6 games to soul number 74 Bracciali with the dizzy spell. #76 should be tired after his matches with Starace and Robredo. His soul will come to rest in 4 games by the painted-Cortex of Nadal tomorrow afternoon in the Rome coliseum. Nadal may even go to the bakery with a bagel or breadstick in mind.

    The amazing thing from Nadal is that Djokovic played well, much better than he has been playing on clay and still, he lost 6-2 6-3. That proves again how tough is to beat Nadal on clay. I think Djokovic is a little overrated on clay, he is good but he is not better than Ferrer, Robredo or Berdych to name a few. Indeed Ferrer beat him in Montecarlo in straights and Gasquet should beat him in Estoril if he had not choked like a club player.
    On hardcourts and grass he is a contender for any title. Be careful Federer.

    Are you Nadal's publicist or something? Now, make now mistake about it, what Nadal has done with this clay court streak is amazing. But you cheapen it with these post of your counting down the "victims" as you call them. And talking about what Nadal will do to them, blah, blah, blah. You are kinda like the guy who goes out and buys a Bentley and ruins it buy going to put 20 in spinning rims on it and putting in all the speakers anyone can fit into a car. Even Federerfanatic, one of the most diehard Federer fans out there doesn't even do this(some people refer to him as a troll), and mind you he could do the same with Fed's grasscourt streak, Fed's hardcourt streak, ect. But you are the first one to call Federerfanatic out for trolling. I just don't get it.

    Didn't Novak beat Robredo like a drum last week? Hardcourts yes, he is a force to be reckoned with, but grass? If I were Federer I'd be more afraid of Gasquet when it comes to grass since he actually owns titles on the green stuff.

    I think Djokovic is the 3rd best claycourter out there.
    1. Nadal
    2. Federer
    3. Djokovic
    4. Canas
    5. Gasquet

    Yes, but Robredo isn´t at his best now. He really struggled to beat Garcia-Lopez and Andreev, even Gaudio forced him to 3 sets.
    He isn´t a contender for the FO in my opinion. On grass his serve is really good and his shots are flat and deep, really hard to return. If Federer isn´t at his best he has a chance.

  31. Wait, isn't Fed's current hardcourt streak at zero?

    I kid.

    It certainly is. I was just pointing out examples in which Federerfanatic could have done the same.

    I think Cañas can beat him on clay.

    To any of those who missed this match. Joker was taken to school in a big way. Joker didn´t play bad at all. His soul has been taken by the Aeropro (painted Cortex) of Lord Nadal I of the Iberian Peninsula.

    "I'll finish by saying that this match had me thinking that the men’s game is looking good for the immediate future. Djokovic and Nadal are a major rivalry waiting to happen, as are Djokovic and Federer, now that the Man has lost some of his Aura. Watching today, I felt like these guys measure up well to those daunting champions from the sport's past. John McEnroe, happily nodding away on the sideline after every great point, seemed to agree."

    Almost missed this one, chill man, having some fun. Relax. Other people have done the same or perhaps worse when guys like Vive make personal insults to Nadal, but since you hate him you have no problem with Vive's posts. But you take issue with mine since I'm a Nadal fan. It's called a double standard. You taking this so personally doesn't make it fun. Adding a little poetic touch, spicing it up. I've been inspired by Ross K's Babolat Alliance thread, for those who don't know.

    Davydenko has an exceptional skill on hitting the ball on the rise, but he'll find it difficult to do that against Nadal on clay. I predict a 6-2, 6-3 win by Nadal.

    Looks like Davydenko proved you wrong. He does it on clay as well.

    Yeah I couldn't believe what I saw either. Davydenko is certainly something to be reckon with.
