2013 Barcelona Discussion thread
 
The draw is out:
http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2013/425/mds.pdf

I would say Nadal's half is slightly tougher with Berdych, Nishikori, Raonic, Dimitrov. Could play Berlocq again who he lost a set to in Brazil. On the other side you got Ferrer, Kohly, Almagro and Monaco.

Personally I would love to see another Dimitrov-Nadal SF. But usually these rematches lead to disappointment. Either way Nadal is another lock to the title, I could see Nishikori making it close but not much more.

It's tradition lol.

Nadal will win this without dropping a set.

Nadal-Ferrer final. Nadal's draw is full of solid clay courters, and Janowicz's serve to make things interesting.

Ferrer's draw is full of USTA 4.0s in comparison, except Almagro, and that's another win for Daveed there.

Don't care, Nadal can gather all the ATP 500's with no serious competition attending.

Let's talk about Madrid.

I wonder where Gulbis will end up.

Here's another link for the draw (not PDF).

Dimitrov might face Berdych again, right? I hope they meet.

Marc Lopez ain't bad he could be ranked top 100 if he put his mind to it.

He beat Robert 6-1 6-0 for anyone who missed it.

Oh and does anyone think there is a draw that isn't fixed?

I hope this time Ferrer will do the following to Nadal for a change:

After finally losing his MC title for the first time in 8 years, I'm betting Rafa will make doubly sure he doesn't lose Barcelona as well. Watch out Daveed and everyone else in the draw. This time Rafa REALLY isn't in the mood to be messed with (not that he ever was anyway)! ;)

What's Clarky's prediction for this one? :)

Clarky21 04-21-2013 12:30 PM

Nadal's draw is tough and if he doesn't pick it up soon, he's not defending this title, either. Now I shall wait for all the a**holes who dumped on me about him not winning MC to do it again. Lol.

Not saying you're wrong, but honestly which players do you think Nadal could fall to? Even if he has a mediocre tournament like he did in MC, I'm struggling to pick out any players who could shock him, even if they played the match of their life (like Dimitrov to an extent).

when will the web coverage start ?

West Coast Ace 04-21-2013 01:07 PM

PS - I want to see Nico man up and beat Ferrer in the SF.

Legend of Borg 04-21-2013 01:08 PM

Getting withdrawal symptoms after today's final.

Not happening. Put Ferrer on hard court and he believes he has half a chance against Rafa.

Put Nico on any court with Ferrer and he flat doesn't believe. AO proved that

Yeah, I can't believe I didn't attend this tournament when I was single and lived in Europe. I'm just glad I went to Roland Garros a couple of times.
