Nadal facing a classic trap match tomorrow?
Posted by tennisplanet on September 8, 2010
Just Verdasco’s presence instead of Murray’s is good enough reason for birth of the classic syndrome. Add the five setter Verdasco just got done playing and you have a chronic case of classicvitis. Isn’t it similar to the semifinal encounter the two had at the ’09 AO?
Need more? Nadal has defeated Verdasco ten straight freaking times – last one in straight sets – with a bagel and a bread stick. More? Verdasco has managed just three sets in those ten encounters.
All that adds up to a massive trap match – with a potential juicy match against Federer in the finals waiting in the wings.
Translation: Nadal chances of losing to Verdasco may be greater than him losing in the finals – against anybody.
