    Did you see how Tomas blasted Daveed off the court? He's gonna do the same to Nadal if Rafa is not in the zone.

    Nadal needs some luck and his best game to have a chance against Berdych.

    Mate, I'm just being humble like Rafa.
    Most people know who's gonna win this match even before it's began. No one is underestimating Nadal;) Just being humble

    I can't believe how many people here are picking Berdych.
    Is 15 STRAIGHT wins not enough to bet on a dude?
    crazy.

    Well, Rafa has been a bit too successful of late for the Fed fanatics to like him.

    As for this match, I don't think anyone will bet on Tomas taking down Nadal. Nadal is #1 for a reason. Even haters know Rafa is a much better tennis player than Tomas Berdych.

    I hope he sees it and complains to Uncle Capy how his egg is communicating to him.

    Uncle Capy will have no choice but to retire his nephew from tennis.

    Only an asylum will help his cause from now on.

    It's actually pretty simple when you think about it! You count matches and if it gets close then sets and if it gets REALLY CLOSE then games.

    I think people can't grasp the fact that ******** could top the group.

    I'm one of those people. :lol:
     
  13. I gave Tomas some good advice before the Ferrer match, sadly I won't be there tonight to do the same.

    Nadal already a break up, leads 2-0 in first set.
    I expect Nadal to play a bit more freely, aggressively without much pressure.

    I can see why Nadal is a "bad match-up" for classical players. You not only need to be a very good tennis player but also need to be athletic to consistently beat this guy.

    What does berdych need to do to qualify given his lost against wawrinka? Does he have a chance even if wins?

    All 3 has 2 wins then.

    Berdych beat Ferrer in straights. So if he beats Nadal, you would think he goes through given Stan needed 3 sets to beat both Ferrer and Berdych.

    If Berdych wins, he advances, Wawa exits.

    Berdych is really talented. The forehand he has is a gift from somewere. He if anyone can disturb nadal if he plays good.

    Only Berdych is stupid enough NOT too run around the BH when Nadal gives you a slice.

    As expected, after securing his YE #1 ranking, Nadal is trying out his aggressive game against Berdych.

    Nadal's BH was good at RG and Montreal. Has been average since USO

    Can't happen now as Novak beat Delpo. He's already secured 1st place in Group B.

    Nadal kind of deserves to get injured for going all out when he has nothing to play for.

    But if berdych went to win 2-0 , doesnt he catch the first spot from nadal?

    Nadal won his first match 2-0 while berdych lost 2-1, the secon match both won 2-0. Then now in this match if berdych were to win 2-0 he would be first, because when he lost he took one set, and rafa didnt.


    But it seems now that nadal will secure the 1st spot

    You look at guys like Berdych and Delpo, they have the weapons to take down any player. Against guys like Djokovic and Nadal, however, their movement isn't good enough.

    Nadal takes the first set 6-4.

    Nadal will most likely hit more winners in this match than his 2 previous matches combined.

    Are you kidding me? He's trying to finish it off as quick as possible, so that he can rest.

    If Nadal loses this match, I think we can talk about tanking.

    I find myself in the strange position for I think the first time in my life actually rooting for Nadal to win a match. :shock:

    (Because I want Wawrinka (and his awesomne 1HBH) to make the semis and not Berdych (with his boring 2HBH)).

    Nevermind, Nadal needed the first set so it makes sense. Now he doesn't have to try anymore. Makes sense that he is tanking like he should now.
