For the moment, just hope he would give a better performance than last year's final (I mean, 4 games
They are both not at 100%, so I don't know what to expect. Rafa is a huge favorite, but I know Nole at his best can trouble him and beat him, even on this surface. The problem is Nole isn't at his best right now. He easily dismissed Fabio playing good tennis, but he needs to raise his level even more vs Rafa. It would be amazing if he took home the trophy tomorrow!
Mark, I would accept losses to Rafa in Montecarlo, Madrid and Rome, if he were to beat him in the RG final
