OK let's take the debate into here =D> Nice idea rafa although people might get bit confused and not read that's its only a POSSIBILITY.
Anyway murray_mad said this in the other thread:
Sorry but I completely disagree with you, both of them have never faced eachover before, both are good on clay, I think it will be tight but Andy has the ability to beat Nadal, Hewitt was the strong favourite to beat Andy but what happened there Murray beat him, Roddick was the strong favourite to beat him but Andy beat him in two sets, Stepanek was strong favourite to beat Andy but Andy beat him in straight sets, Andy has caused alot of upsets and I have the feeling if andy gets through in the second round he will cause another upset, You may think Nadal has it in the bag, you will be surprised I promise you.
I know they've never faced eachother before. And that's what's so exciting about it. The fact that i will be supporting Nadal doesn't mean Andy can't win.
I never eliminated the idea that Andy can't win - of course he can. I have full respect for him, and i doubt i would hang round here as much after leaving VR for good if i didn't like Andy more than Rafa.
Andy beat Hewitt on hard court. I know it's not Andy's favorite surface - but he was in excellent form to achieve what he did, when he did. I don't think he's in his best form at the moment and with no coach.. im finding it quite difficult in seeing a win for Murray - i hope im proved wrong.
I may be suprised.. and im always suprised by Andy which is why i like him as a player. But we have to take logic here and facts.. Nadal IS the master of clay at this moment in time. He's got what? 7 or 8 titles on clay last year and with the start of the clay season i think Nadal's going to put all he can in to this first tourney. Also he's defending champion - he might not win, but he'll get further than round 2.
