As for the match Delpo can't use the slice to effect like he did today vs Djokovic. Rafa will just kill it with his FH cc. We'll see how things go tomorrow. Vamos!
In 2007 Canadian Open M-1000 Djokovic defeated nš3 Roddick in the QF, nš2 Nadal in the SF and nš1 Federer in the Final.
In 2007 Madrid M-1000 Nalbandian defeated nš2 Nadal in the QF, nš3 Djokovic in the SF and nš1 Federer in the Final.
Two weeks later, in Paris-Bercy M-1000 he defeated nš1 Federer in R16 and nš2 Nadal in the Final.
