Dubai – Federer vs Lopez

UPDATE: Result – Roger Federer beat Michael Llodra 7-5, 6-3

Roger Federer will play Feliciano Lopez in the second round in Dubai.

Lopez has lost all 9 previous matches he played against the great Swiss champion, however at the age of 30 he has seemingly reached his prime, and his ranking of 15 is his all time high. He’ll know it is “now or never” and I expect a bit of a battle and a good game of tennis.

Having helped Spain to a 2-0 lead in the Davis Cup rubber on the first day, Rafa will next play Xavier Malisse on Sunday.

Australian Open 2011 Draw- Nadal and Federer paths to final

Australian Open 2011 - Link to Official Website

With a “Rafa Slam” or an extension of Fed’s all time Open record at stake, let’s take a look at what each player would have to overcome to reach that Nadal vs Federer final that so many of us are hoping for.

If all goes according to seed, here is how it would go according to the draw (link to full draw here):

Rafael Nadal Roger Federer
Round 1 Marcos Daniel (96) Lukas Lacko (99)
- Head to Head 2-0 0-0
Round 2 Daniel Gimeno-Traver (58) Gilles Simon (41)
- Head to Head 0-0 0-2
Round 3 Feliciano Lopez (32) Albert Montanes (25)
- Head to Head 6-2 3-1
Round 4 Marin Cilic (15) Mardy Fish (16)
- Head to Head 0-1 6-1
Quarter Finals David Ferrer (7) Andy Roddick (8)
- Head to Head 11-3 20-2
Semifinals Robin Soderling (4) Novak Djokovic (3)
- Head to Head 5-2 13-6
Finals Nadal vs Federer (Head to Head 14-8)
Singles ranking in brackets, Head to head with Nadal or Federer

The main early obstacle for Nadal seems to be the third round where he will face the winner of Marin Cilic or John Isner. Cilic beat Rafa in their only previous meeting.

Federer’s second round match will be a tough one on paper – Gilles Simon beat him in their only earlier encounters, though his form in recent months has not been so predictable.

After that, the semis will probably be where the real work kicks in. Rafa should (on paper) meet Soderling or Murray – two of the best players on hard court over recent years. Federer against Djokovic will also be fascinating.

Let the action begin – and begin it will on Monday 17th January when Roger Federer will play his first round match. He is third on the Rod Laver court, so will probably come on some time after 2pm local time, 1am GMT. Rafael Nadal will have to wait until Tuesday 18th January.

US Open – Live TV – Nadal vs Lopez

Match over,  Nadal won 6-3, 6-4, 6-4

Rafael Nadal faces Feliciano Lopez in his challenge to reach the quarterfinals.

Rafa has a 5-2 lead in the head to head over his fellow Spaniard, although Feli had the better of their last meeting when he knocked him out at the quarterfinals in Queens this year.

I do not think Nadal will allow the same to happen. I pick that he will win in three straight sets.

Shanghai Open Final – Live TV – Nadal vs del Davydenko

Free Live TV over internet – links at end of this post

Rafa made it through to his first final in over five months, again with a little assistance from an injured opponent. This time it was Feliciano Lopez who succumbed to problems in his foot, and Nadal was through, 6-1, 3-0 and retired.

Nadal has a 4-2 lead over Davydenko in all time match ups, but it is important to note that the world ranked number 8   Russian has had the better of the Mallorcan in their past two encounters on hard courts (Paris and Miami 2008). So I expect a tough match today, and we are going to see whether Rafa can really sustain a top performance. I pick Rafa in three.

The match starts at 4:30pm local time, that’s 8:30 am GMT, 9:30 am in UK , 10:30am in most of western Europe and 4:30am in New York.
