    Both events would be a first.

    I don't see Nadal reaching too many finals on HC this year, so I'm guessing Djokovic will have the better chance..

    Nadal has hardly any titles left outside clay. I see Djoko defending Serbia open.

    You're right, forgot about the Nole-Open.
    No way he fails to defend this title if he's healthy as not many strong players will attend.

    Makes this thread kind of moot, unless Nadal defends Indian Wells.

    Rafa has not beaten a top ten player for how long, 150,000 years?

    Um, Nadal has to win first a HC title to defend it(he only holds IW and I can't see him being favorite to win it next month).

    Djokovic on other hand has like what 4 strikes to defend one. By memory he won Dubai,Basel,Paris and Beijing.

    His odds are much better looking, not to mention that HC's are his surface.
