    Nadal in straight sets.Gonzalez embarrased himself last time.Of course Nadal makes u do that on clay but Gonzalez was awful last time.

    Nadal 6-3, 6-2. These courts are slower than Rome and Gonzo still goes for broke. Very little will change in the result I think.

    Gonzo 4-6, 6-4, 7-6.

    It's worth a shot.

    Nadal in 2 sets and I think Almagro has a chance against Hewitt.

    like i said, nadal will win in straight sets, gonzo is a good player, he made the ao finals, but nadal is faster and is the king of clay, gonzo can try to dig down deep to beat nadal but he will find out he doesnt have a big enough shovel, nadals speed will cut him to pieces, 6-4, 6-4.

    I think Gonzo will really want a better showing and try hard. He got killed in Rome, but he did make the final and he is in the QFs, so he must be playing well.

    That said, he'll still lose.

    I'll say 7-5, 6-3 Nadal.

    Because it´s a combination of many things. Gonzo fans, Fed fans and those who are just hoping Nadal loses. They should retitle these polls. Who do you HOPE to win?

    There is more chance of Paris Hilton getting killed in prison then Gonzalez beating Nadal on clay.

    I guess it might be easy for him to beat Gonzy again. But I'm hoping for the best. Rafa is extreamely capable of beating Gonzy in straight sets. I dont see why not. And then he'll have 80 wins under his belt too! :D

    I say Nadal 6-4, 6-1. It breaks my heart to say it, but this guy is unstoppable on clay.

    What do you all think was the difference at the Australian open? was it just the surface or was Gonzo playign the much better at the time ( more winners than errors)

  36. Gonzo just gave a point back to Nadal that was called out, but actually clipped the line. Very cool of him.

    gonzo is a gentleman.

  38. Nadal looks a bit annoyed out there. Maybe a little off. But Gonzo doesn't look great yet either. I can see Nadal losing in this tournament if he is starting to get worn out...

  44. 4-3, Nadal with Nadal to serve. Nadal is missing a lot of shots just wide or long.
