Federer-Nadal rivalry is considered to be one of the greatest rivalry in Tennis history.
Roger Federer defeated Benoit Paire in straight sets 7-6 6-4
Rafael Nadal thrashed Tomas Berdych in two easy sets 6-2 6-4.
And both will face for the 30th time. Rafa leads ATP H2H with 19-10. All the best to both the players. We are going to witness a tremendous match. 🙂
Federer is hunger for his first title in this year and he is really looking forward to win this title. From the first match onwards he took advantage of the practice that he had earlier this tournament. Playing more aggressive than usual and shot making is also very good. And Roger yet to drop a set in this tournament ( Who cares? just saying 🙂 ), but as compared to the previous matches, Roger didn’t play well today, just got away at some crucial points. That’s what champions do ;).
On the other side, Nadal reached at least finals in 8 out of 8 tournaments that he has been playing from the time he came back from injury. And Rafa overtaken Novak in the year ending ranking points. If Rafa win Roma , he will be seeded as 4. That is also important for Rafa to take advantage of some easy matches before entering semis.
