It's actually really strange to see these poll results favoring Nalbandian over Nadal on clay but I have to admit, it does show that TW members are aware of the circumstances at the moment. In his last four matches, Nadal has only had one straight sets win. First, he lost a tough three setter to Zeballos in Vina Del Mar 7/6(2), 6/7(6), 4/6. Then straight setted Sauza R2 in Brazil. He then won a dog fight three setter over Berlocq 3/6, 6/4, 6/4. Now today drops another set to (Alund???) 6/3, 6/7(2), 6/1

It's no brainner that Nalbandian has more credibility (and has actually beaten a healthy Rafa x2, although not on clay) than any of these guys. Nadal is definately not in full form at the moment and I would guess Nalbandian will push him very hard tomorrow...we'll see.
