    Unfortunately we won't see a nadal/canas final. Canas w.o v. Davydenko to-day

    Cañas won his match against Davydenko. Davydenko withdrew with arm pain. So a final is still possible.

    When's the last time nadal lost a set on clay?

    nadal beat canas 6-3 6-1 in rome '05 when canas was playing great. nadal plays the same game but plays it better, so not liking canas' chances.

    canas can't beat nadal. bottom line is that nadal can outgrind canas, and has the offensive game that canas lacks

    Canas is a good player, although I remember him hitting harder before his suspension, but Nadal does everything better than him.

    Cañas has a better return of serve, specially on fast surfaces

    yeah nadal is better than Cañas because he has great power and weight in his shot, plus he s a lefty

    whereas the argentine lacks firepower

    Cañas, Calleri or Ferrer could beat Nadal now because he is really tired but I don´t think they could beat Nadal at 100%

    Canas would lose to Nadal on clay. But on a hardcourt it could be a different story

    yeah cañas could bet Nadal on fast surfaces for sure

    btw I do not think rafa is tired, he has played many matches but all pretty easily and not spending too much time on court.

    DC, 22-Sep-06, O, Clay

    RR Volandri, Filippo (ITA) N/A 3-6 7-5 6-3 6-3

    It was Volandri in the DC tie to stay in the World Group last Sept.
    He took the 1st set 6-3 and he leaded 5-4 and 0-30 in the 2nd (2 points away of a 2-0 sets lead).

    Canas has a very very good return of serve but once again I would give Nadal the better return of serve.
