Nadal vs Roddick

Apparently these two don't hook up very often.  Nadal holds a 2 to 1 edge on Andy and they have only played once in the last 4 years.  That makes sense because Andy on clay is like, as Maria would say, a cow on ice.  This matchup is very intriguing.  With Roger out almost anyone can win this tournament.  I look for Andy to win this match and Novak to win the tournament.

Right now i wouldn't say that Rafa is on top of his game.  It also seems that Andy is playing pretty well.  A big serve seems to bring out the best in some people though - Kohlschreiber, Soderling.  I did pick Novak for the next match but i just read that there is trouble in Serbia which he is aware of.  It could be interesting.  Especially if Andy is serving at 149.75 mph.

Nadal vs Roddick

Head to Head is 1-0 Djoker. They only faced each other in the Masters series Canada last year with Djoker winning 7-6(4) 6-4 so it was a close match but still Djoker pulled it out and it was when Roddick was on fire last year. So it will be fun to see who takes this one. Good call on the nadal - Roddick match i porbably would have gone with Nadal but thats just i want him to get to number 1 overall.

Looks like I got the first part right as Andy won 7-6, 6-2.  Now we will see about the matchup with the Djoker.  Does anyone know what their head 2 head is?
