Nadal v. Nalbandian - FINAL - Brazil Open 2013
 

Mike Sams 02-16-2013 02:17 PM

first meeting on clay. Think I'll take Nadal in 3.

Nadal will bring the bakery to this encounter. Nalbandian will be beat 6-1 6-0, not even kicking a linesman will save him.

Nadal needs to get an early start going....he starts playing well in the end of the 2nd set or third set.

From what I've seen, this could be straights for Nalbandian honestly, but it wouldn't surprise me if he found a way to screw it up either. Thus giving Nadal the win. All in all, I think I'll take Nalbandian in 3.

yes, but it's indoor clay
and nalby thrives indoors

another argentinean beat nadal on clay last week, tho he was a left-hander

I am afraid Nalbandian will win this with ease. Rafa is just playing like a mug at the moment.I dont even enjoy watching him.

I'll go along with this

sadly, even tho nalby's got great tennis brain, he's not got the same high level of confidence that nadal has. such as the way nadal came roaring back in the third set today

still, nalbandian knows how to beat nadal, and this week he seems in the best position to do so that I've ever seen personally. Yes, it's because rafa's still got a ways to go to come back AND he'd hatehatehate to lose to an argentinean two finals in a row

Luv nadal, but gonna go with my sentiment for nalbandian -- in 3, as you said

Nalbandian in 2, something like 7-5, 6-3.

Nadal is just coming back, hasn't played that great of competition, is still far from rounding into pre-injury form. Nalby could, at times, trouble Nadal when Nadal was actually in his prime. We all know Nably is no slouch and has incredible game at times.

I'm not trying to get down on Nadal. I'm not saying Nalby is better overall, but at this juncture, I just see Nably winning against a less-than Nadal. Of course, this is Nalby we're talking about, so who knows what will happen. But, I'm going to bet on David in this match.

Nalby in straights. Nadal probably takes 4 games max.

Sounds about right.

Nadal in straights. This isn't 2007.

Onehandedbackhand 02-16-2013 03:05 PM

Nadal wins this match in 3.

Nalby stands no chance tomorrow.

augustobt 02-16-2013 03:06 PM

This court is playing very quickly. The balls are very light too. I think that's the condition that Nalby needs for pull out an upset.

Yes Nadal was actually a good player back then. Now he sucks.

may you be right ! :)

All this stuff is wishful thinking about Nadal fading away.

He'll be injured again, no question, but he's still going to win.

And he'll win tomorrow too...and he'll win RG.

Fat Dave in 2 sets. Nadal just lost a set to Martin "who the f**k" Alund on clay for god's sake.

Nalbandian's lost to players like Alund a lot of the time too.
