    Yep, he could face any of the top 4 I think.
    I want him to knock of djokovic in the quarters so djoker doesnt get to defend his 1200 ranking points bearing in mind 1200 points is worth more than a masters 1000.

    But that could backfire as well, Djokovic could beat Nadal and Nadal would lose a heck of points. Which of the top 4 seeds Nadal gets to face in the quarters is all random.

    Random my behind!

    Since they can't guarantee a Fedal final with Nadal potentially going through three of them, we will see a Fedal QF and i would put money on that occurance right now!

    The chances of a backfire are 2% since Nadals percentage at RG 98% however worst case scenario he will lose 2000 points if an upset did happen which is very very unlikely.

    I think your statistical claim there is a bit suspect at best. Using past experience as a basis for future prediction etc. I would expect Rafa to beat Djok in a quarter, but I'd give Djok at least a, say, 30% shot at winning.

    I'm not going to deny it's an impressive statistic, but I think to take it at face value for predictions would be folly.

    I'm gonna see if I can predict the entire major clay court season in one shot Anyone can feel free to quote me on this after it's all over, hopefully I won't get too much of it wrong!

    Monte Carlo: comfortable win for Nadal for his 9th straight title (potentially his last one as well, we'll see) over Djoko, Del Po or Murray in final
    Madrid: Djokovic over Federer/Nadal in final for his 2nd Madrid title
    Rome: Nadal to win his 7th title at Rome over Djokovic/Ferrer/Federer/Murray, etc (anyone else really) in the final

    Roland Garros:
    Nadal bt Djokovic in 4 sets
    OR
    Djokovic to stun Nadal in final (4 or 5 sets)?

    All pure speculation at the moment - will revise my predictions in light of any future developments!

    Hmmmm My prediction is that Nadal will completely own the clay season.
    I really cant see anybody beating Nadal this season on clay.

    Monte Carlo- Hes invincible there.( Congratz on 9th TITLE!)
    Barcelona- he bts Ferrer. (CONGRATZ ON 8TH TITLE.)
    Madrid -he bts Djoker/Delpo
    Rome- He bts Djoker/Murray (7 title)

    ROLAND GARROS= 98% VS the tennis world.

    Quarters- Nadal beats djoker 3/4 sets most likely 3.
    Semis- Nadal beats murray 3 sets
    Final nadal beats Federer/ferrer 3 sets to clinch his Record breaking 8 single grandslam title.

    Are you suggesting Djokovic and Nadal would end up in the same quarter? Unlikely - everyone is expecting a Djokovic-Nadal RG final to be the height of the clay season.
    As for Madrid, I give Nadal only a 50-60% chance there. Sure it's red clay, but it's much faster than all the other places and historically Nadal has not had the greatest record there. He won the title only once on red clay (2010), and he's lost to Federer and Djokovic there, so nothing is guaranteed.
    Agree with all the others though

    Nadal has won Madrid masters twice 2008,2010.
    Who do you think Nadal will face at the quarters, semis?

    No, he won in 2005 (when it was Indoor Hard) and then in 2010 on red clay. Andy Murray won in 2008 on the Hard Court surface.
    I think (and hope) Rafa faces Ferrer in QFs. Then he may meet Murray in the semis and leave Federer to battle Djokovic for the right to face him in the final.
