Djokovic vs Nadal

I think Novak will show Rafa all angles of the court, but Rafa will manage to return every shot and he'll win in 2 tough sets. 6/4 - 7/5 or something like that ;)

Someone HAS to beat Nadal eventually. Nadal is the favorite for sure but I will not be surprised to see Djokovic win.

Say what you want about Djokovic, but it is his attitude that has taken him to the top of the game, and his belief that will take him to at least #3 by years end.

I don't think Djokovic has the game to beat Nadal on clay right now. The score is not going to be much different from Youghny. The kid has got a winning attitude though and he could go far in the future.

Lol. I´m just laughing and nodding my head at these people who doubt Nadal on this stuff. Each day we´re running out of names of people who can beat him on clay. Berydych, Youzhny, Fed, Canas have all been whooped in straight sets and yet people pick Joker for tomorrow? Yes, his streak will eventually end, just like Fed not winning Wimbledon but it ain´t happening this year. Joker has 75 written on his big egotistical head. Nadal will ¨control¨the match tomorrow in a surprisingly easy straight set win.

Hey man I hope so! It's what I want to see. I'm just keeping expectations low. ;-)

Unlike all the guys you just named Djokovic easily has the best backhand of them all. That one stroke alone is the biggest difference maker against Nadal on any surface. If Joker serves well he has a chance, he's already shown he can hang in tight sets against Nadal and he has no fear against the big name players. He should finish at #3 in the rankings at years end. I'm picking Nadal to win but if Joker plays well it will definitely be tight. The high spinny balls to the backhand won't bother Joker that much.

Correct - I too believe that his serve will play a key factor in the match. If he does not serve well, he will be blown off the court. He has to serve well to stand a realistic chance to end the streak.

Good assessment, but Berdych's backhand is arguably as good or better than Djokovic's in handling heavyily top spun balls. More power with slightly less control, but with a greater strike zone thanks to Berdych's height.

Did you catch the close-up they did on Nadal's mom? It was just for a second. So, I couldn't check her out very well. But I think she's hot.

It seems that this is going to be an easy one for Nadal 2-6 5-7 or something similar.
Whenever I post a prediction things go the other way. I should be banned from predicting results :x

Djokovic held serve and now is 00-30 up and has a half chance of a break. I am glad about it of course but it's not exactly compatible with my lame prediction :lol:

Wait! Nadal broke him again. Nadal's 5-2 and serving for set.

Second set has started. It's Djokovich 1-0. Djokovich holds without problems for the first time. Nadal has toned down a bit. A mistake if you ask me. Or, maybe, he's just charging batteries for later. Let's see.

Important hold for Nole 3:2* - A really great and very intense match - both guys will have great rivalry in the future.
