3-2 Nadal
COME ON ROGER...no repeats of MC & Rome...let's go!

Haha jeb - have a lil' faith; Feds has come back from the brink before... He 'appears' to be holding serve easier than before [or more like he's actually holding serve ;)] - so perhaps those vital 1 or 2 points on Nadal's serve will achieve the breakthrou

i know it looks bad, least we can do is still support!
miracles are rare bt yea they do happen

Hm, a break down in the 4th and Nadal doesn't look like he's going to be broken any time soon - but who knows, Feds looked down and out 0-4 at the Tennis Masters last November vs Nalbandian; perhaps he simply likes the pressure of coming from behind? :P

For there to be a fifth set, there'd need to be a turnaround like against Nalbandian, I just don't think Nadal will be getting any abdominal injuries
