Internazionali BNL d’Italia – Rome Draw!

Rafael and Roger Federer in the same half again, possible semi meet up.

With the Madrid final still to play, the Rome action is well under way.

Here is my pick on seed and form as to who they are likely to have to win in order to meet in the semis and progress to a possible final.

Both Nadal and Federer look to have a relatively easy run to the quarterfinals where they could meet David Ferrer and Tomas Berdych respectively. Having said that, Rafa’s first opponent Bellucci is in great form and that could be a big upset in the making…

Rafael Nadal – likely Rome opponents:

First round: bye
Second round: Tomaz Bellucci
Third round:  Mikhail Youzhny
Quarter finals: David Ferrer
Semifinals: Roger Federer
Finals: Novak Djokovic

Roger Federer – likely Rome opponents:

First round: bye
Second round: Jo-Wilfred Tsonga
Third round: Richard Gasquet
Quarter finals: Tomas Berdych
Semifinals: Rafael Nadal
Finals: Novak Djokovic

Well it is hard to imagine – Ferrer has actually beaten Nadal on clay before – but it was back in 2004!

And since then Rafa has racked up a 12-4 lead in the head to head, and now 500 wins altogether on the ATP circuit.

Barcelona – Nadal vs Giraldo

UPDATE – Match over, Nadal beat  Giraldo 6-3, 6-2 to reach the last eight

Rafael Nadal has played the Colombian twice before, with straight set wins on each occasion.

The match will come on at the completion of the one between David Ferrer and Victor Hanescu – that match is due to start not before 1:30pm local time (11:30 am GMT), so I would expect Rafa to come on earliest 2:3opm (12:30pm GMT) – probably a bit later.

Rafa Back in Training – Davis Cup against Belgium next Challenge

Watch out world, Rafael Nadal is back in training :) .

Great news given the Davis Cup against Belgium coming up (March 4-6) not to mention the US hard court, clay and grass seasons where he is defending a staggering 7000 points given his amazing run of form in 2010.

The injury dated back to the Australian Open match against Spaniard David Ferrer on Jan. 26, but his doctor Ángel Ruiz Cotorro has since cleared him to return to the court.

“I feel quite good, I am going home to Manacor to begin training on the courts,” Nadal said on his official website. “I am going to start training slowly, following a plan, so that there are no setbacks.”

Rafael Nadal was also recently the guest of honour at the official presentation of “Godo”, the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell 2011. Rafa considers this his “home” tournament, and he won it for five straight years to 2009 before missing out last year, choosing to rest from a heavy schedule. But to the joy of organisers I am sure, he will be back in 2011. Let’s hope his body can handle the strain this year…

At the Barcelona press conference, it was interesting to hear Nadal talk of his disappointment about not being able to complete that “Rafa Slam” – 4 Grand Slams in a row to match an achievement last completed back in 11969 by Aussie legend Rod Laver.

“I was crying in the locker room. I [hated that I had] to go out of the tournament. Last year, I had to do it and it was something I didn’t want to repeat. But from the third game I knew I didn’t have a chance to win. David was playing fantastic and I wasn’t able to run enough to rise to the level to beat him.”

Australian Open – Ferrer vs Murray

UPDATE – Match over – Murray came back to beat Ferrer, 4-6, 7-6, 6-1, 7-6

I am sure we’d all, with the notable exception (perhaps) of David Ferrer, expected to see Rafa playing Murray here, but instead the Spanish hopes will rest on the man from Alicante.

David Ferrer has played Andy Murray 5 times before, with the honours split depending on surface – Ferrer won all 3 clay court matches and Murray both hard court ones.

Australian Open – Nadal vs Ferrer

David Ferrer - Link to ATP Profile

UPDATE – Match over – big upset as Nadal’s dream of a fourth Grand Slam in succession die as he crashes out 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 to David Ferrer.

Rafael Nadal will play his countryman David Ferrer for a slot in the semifinals.

The Mallorcan has had a great recent run against Ferrer, and leads the head to head 11-3.

I pick Nadal in straight sets (UPDATE - oops, egg on face :) )
