It's Djoko's attempt #3 at beating Rafa this season, could be successful this time but I doubt it.
I wish it would be a Djoko-Murray final so they could square up but Murray still has to master clay...

I think that if Djokovic reaches the final he'll be #3 in the world again. So theres some stuff going for Djokovic in this match, not to mention trying to finally beat Nadal on clay.

You think right - a win and he's number 3 again.

I don't think the ranking thing matters much though. If it did, he would have put up a better fight in Rome, no?

Novak wins this one in straight with help from his mom and papa from the stands.
They both will ask NAdal to check the marks so much so that nadal will get irritated and forget to arrange the bottles between changeovers.
This would haunt Nadal for the rest of the match and Novak will win.
Also, Novak will give one bagel to nadal.

Actually they've played on clay so far at Davis Cup, Monte-Carlo & Rome, Madrid will be the 4th of the year.

This is a tough one.

Both are always injured and/or exhausted.

Both are constantly complaining about the rankings.

It's a toss up. :)

I have a feeling this will be a straight set affair, either way.

I'm hoping for a Fedal final as we haven't had one on clay this year, shall be good to see if the clay helps Federer against Nadal.

Jason Goodall Discussing the ranking system, I don't really think anyone actually agrees with Djokovic, not any commentatro/player I have heard anyway.

Fedal Castro? :oops:

Fedal sounds terrible... Naderer sounds better :twisted:

My respect for Rafa is boundless but I've got a feeling that Nole could sneak it today. Just don't ask me to try to justify that claim. ;)

" with all due respect" or " no offence" is just pre-empting an insult,it doesn't matter that you give a warning, it's still an insult!

I do like Jason's straigh-talking however.

The GOAT on clay doesn't like the ball around shoulder height? That would be like Laver saying he hates volleying :lol:

Even the streams on TennisTV are flaky... slow-mo video... audio out of sync with video, etc.

Nadal looks a bit jaded. Shame really. He definetly deserves to make the clean sweep of clay court masters events at least once, but his level always drops in the last one.
