Indian Wells – Nadal vs Federer – Face off in the Desert

UPDATE – Result: Roger Federer beat Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-4

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have played 27 times now before, with Rafa leading 18-9. On hard courts however, the head to head is in the balance, with each having won five times in the past

Interesting to see also that whereas Nadal was a fantastic starter in his ATP, Masters and Major careers, piling up the titles from a young age, Fed has been a more consistent performer over the years, and if you compare the two by age, they are now at Nadal’s current age quite similar in terms of age.  Yes, Roger is “catching up”!

Date Comparing Nadal and Federer both at 25y, 9m, 14d ATP Master Majors Weeks No. 1
17 Mar 2012 Rafael Nadal 46 19 10 102

Federer in Davis Cup, Nadal resting until Indian Wells

Following their bruising semis and finals at the Australian Open, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have chosen different paths for the month of February.

We’ll see Federer reappear first as he features in the Switzerland vs USA Davis Cup tie on home ground in Fribourg from February 10th to 12th. With a win hopefully under his belt he’ll head to Rotterdam for the ABN AMRO ATP 500 event, and then on to Dubai at the end of the month.

Rafael Nadal on the other hand has chosen (perhaps out of necessity?) to take some rest, and we hope to see him rejuvenated and mentally toughened after that extremely demanding final in Australia against Novak Djokovic when he kicks off the USA hard court section of the tour in Indian Wells from March 8th.

Nadal takes his revenge in Bogotá

Rafael Nadal beat Novak Djokovic in the exhibition match in Colombia – 7-6, 6-3

After a late arrival (7am instead of midnight) due to weather conditions, the two played with a lot of intensity and a few smiles and jokes along the way.

Nole asked for the organisers to play “Gypsy”, and showed off his dancing skills with the assistants, to make fun of Rafa, who took the gently ribbing with laughter.

In the press conference, Nadal made it clear how he considered Nole to be his main candidate for taking over the number one position.

“Many thanks for the warm welcome you have given us. The exhibition was great!”, he said before heading to dinner tonight in Bogota.

Nadal flies out to Miami on Tuesday for the next ATP Masters Series 1000 event.

Indian Wells – Nadal vs Del Potro, Federer vs Djokovic

UPDATE – Nadal won 6-4, 6-4 and Djokovic won 6-3, 3-6, 6-2. Federer and Wawrinka lost the doubles, 6-4, 6-7(5), 10-7

Rafael Nadal lost the last three matches he played against Juan Martin Del Potro, but still leads the head-to-head 4-3 – it will be a close one today, hope to see Rafa scrape through.

Roger Federer is also looking to break some winning streaks – Novak Djokovic has won his last 18 matches straight – and the last two against the Swiss – though Fed still leads the head-to-head, 13-8.

Once he has had a rest, Federer will come back to the court with Stanislas Wawrinka, to see if the Olympic champions can claim the Indian Wells doubles title against Alexandr Dolgopolov and Xavier Malisse.

Indian Wells – Nadal vs Karlovic

UPDATE – Nadal fought back to win 5-7, 6-1, 7-6 while Federer and Wawrinka won 6-1, 7-5 in doubles.

Rafael Nadal’s match against Croatian Ivo Karlovic will be the toughest challenge yet at Indian Wells for the Mallorcan this year.

Although he is ranked only 239 in the world right now, that is due to the six months Karlovic was out and recovering from injury in 2010. Rafa has always had a tough time overcoming the big server, who is a former top twenty player.

Nadal has a 3-0 in the head to head – all have been well contested matches.

Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka finally get their chance to play for a spot in the semis. If they can beat Mark Knowles of the Bahamas and Michal Mertinak (Slovakia) we will be able to look forward to them playing Nadal and Lopez.
