Here's my thinking: If you were arguably the best claycourter in the world, would you want to have an easy draw, or would you want to have a challenging draw that would allow you to silence critics if any. I know I would certainly want the latter especially knowing the kind of self belief Nadal has. After last years FO loss to Sod, and all this talk abt vulnerability to flat hitters, if I were Nadal, I would want to have Sod and Gulbis in my draw and hand them a beatdown. As a Nadal fan, I was looking for some retribution against Sodermeister! Might have to wait until next yr for that.
