QF STARACE, Potito (ITA) 6-3 6-4
SF BERDYCH, Tomas (CZE) 6-1 6-0
FR FERRER, David (ESP) 6-2 6-2
It's a pity Nadal doesn't play Bastad anymore, although he doesn't need to after he's done sweeping the clay-court season. Nadal won the tournament in 2005 beating Tomas Berdych in the final.
If Nadal Bastad 2005 faced Soderling Bastad 2011, what would the result be? (Obviously Nadal, but I'm interested in predicted scorelines.)
