    All ye brethren of talk tennis, tremble at the might of the raging bull Rafeal Nadal. For nigh on a half-score golden years the raging bull has defended he esteemed hallowed grounds of Roland Garros and now he will do it once more he wil do it. All hail to the raging bull.

    First set is crucial for Nadal.
    Djokovic has come back from a set down to beat Nadal several times (AO, California, Miami) and is in Nadal's head, putting him on the defensive, trapping him on the backhand side and crushing his serve.
    Nadal better be on his best game because he's just turned 27. No spring chicken here with all the miles on his clock. Everything comes to an end sooner or later...that includes his reign at the French Open.

    I absolutely agree, first set is the key. The last slam match Djokovic lost after winning first set was vs Melzer at French Open 2010, seems ages ago.

    Can bull beat the bulldog ferrer ? Isn't the Bull bigger with horns, so that means it will beat the dog which is ferrer ?

    It'd better mean that. I'm in no mood to take a Nadal loss in this event. He has fought the battle of all time for it. The conclusion can only be a trophy bite. If it doesn't happen, the raging animal will be me :evil: (but it will :))

    and the raging bull has done it again. He has taught that pushing matador that he rules all courts (except for ones with grass).
