Last 2 = Best 2

There aren’t too many sports where the teams/players are this dominant. This is the third year in a row where Federer and Nadal battle for the title in Monte Carlo. Best two freakin’ players in the world.

Djokovic was close today, but I really didn’t understand why he got hurt, or where for that matter. He played better than Federer at the start, and started to struggle towards the end of the first set. It doesn’t really matter, Federer played very well and tomorrow he will get his third chance to break Nadal’s winning streak here in Monte-Carlo. Can he get it a 4th time?!

Nadal powered through against Davydenko quite easily and is 19-1 in this beatiful place along the Riviera. The only loss came in 2003 against Coria. Nadal was 16! He is soon 22 and possibly a 4 time  champ with a 24-1 record. I think my money is on Nadal again, but who knows what magic Federer can bring to snap Nadal’s continued dictatorship on clay.

My gut tells me Nadal wins this close match in 3 sets.

    No worries. Nadal will get Federer. I think this match will be like most other matches between them. Roger could start off really well, taking a set even, but then increase his unforced and allow Nadal to dictate points. 6-2, 5-7, 3-6 loss for Federer.
