Nadal in three. Going with 12 games for Robredo to make it interesting for myself.

Don't reckon Robredo will give Nadal half the trouble Kohl did.

First, thank you, Denisovich, for starting the polls! Smile

12 games for Robredo, huh? Sure, that sounds good to me. Maybe even more like 9.

I voted for Tommy in 5, not because I believe he''ll but because I would love to see him in semi
After his good match vs Declinerer, let's see what he can do vs Buttwin

Nadal in 3 easy sets. All Spaniards just roll over and play dead for Rafa and Robredo simply doesn't have any weapons to attack on hardcourts. I'd do a raindance if I could help him but he got all the help he's gonna get in this tournament yesterday.

Nadal in straights. I don't care about lost game %, but I will say this, he will not get broken in this match.

I hope not! Surely, he'll drop serve eventually, even if he wins the tourney, but has a man (or woman) ever won a Slam without dropping serve? Anyone got the stats on that?

Good day for Tommy if he manages to win anything more than 6 games. Taking out a toilet-level Federer is no indication on what's coming up next.

Rooting for Robredo because I like him and because I can't stand Nadal. Still, going with Nadal in three.

Confidence and almost a year of solid play has to count for something, so I am giving Robredo a set, most likely a TB. Rafa in 4.

If Nadal is on his game, this could get quite ugly. I might eat my words but that's the impression I get, despite Tommy's impressive performance against Federer.

RE: US Open QF: Rafael Nadal vs Tommy Robredo
I'm very curious to see if Nadal will lose serve tonight. The record for the least losing his own serve while winning a Major title is five. Surprisingly, Nadal is one of the players to hold that record. Andy Roddick is the other player to hold the record.

If Nadal can reach the finals without losing serve, he has a great chance to break that record.

As for the predictions: Nadal in three sets. One of the sets will be a tight one.

That must be just the US Open, Id think a few players have won Wimbledon without getting broken 5 times throughout. Surely Sampras must have had a couple years where he was only broken 2-3 times at Wimbledon?
