I think it is going to be a tough match (if it happens  :)). Nalbandian is a better clay player than Novak I think, but Nalby can be very inconsistent. To be honest with you I'd rather have Djokovic playing against Federer than Nalbandian.

Yes I can understand wanting the much easier opponent for your guy.   Just like a Nalbandian fan probably hopes Andreev pulls an upset too.    If there is a big upset in either quarterfinal and a player like Andreev or Federer wins then obviously the semis look much easier for either Nalbandian or Djokovic.

Anyway I agree with you that clay is higher on Nalbandian's personal favorite surfaces list then Djokovic.  It still isnt his absolute favorite surface either by any means though, indoors would clearly be first for him.

By the way kittens, you may want to rethink that, Nalbandian just lost to Fed in 3 sets.

Here's something for you Alex:

Interviste Montecarlo 2008
An interview with/Intervista a:

NOVAK DJOKOVIC

NOVAK DJOKOVIC b. Sam Querrey 6 4, 6 0

Clicca qui per leggere la traduzione

Q. Seemed like another very composed performance from you. Can you talk about how you played.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Sure. When I found out that Iím playing against Sam instead of playing against Gasquet, it was certainly a better draw for me considering the fact that Sam is not a clay court specialist.
And today I was in control of the match most of the time. I didnít face any breakpoints and I was really comfortable on my serve. In the other hand, I had a lot of opportunities the first set I didnít use. But in the end I managed to break him and then hold the serve. After that, it was more or less routine.

Q. Do you have to adjust when youíre playing someone who isnít a clay court specialist? He must look very different to most people you play on clay.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Yeah, true, true. You always, of course, try to prepare the tactic according to the opponent you are having that match.
Today I knew that Iím gonna be facing a big server, so I needed to be really focused on my returns, just wait for my chances, try to open up him a little bit more, try to open the court and then have the opportunities to finish with the winner.

Q. It seemed quite easy. Are you ready for a big clash now?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Yes, Iím ready. Physically I didnít spend so much energy in these three matches. Mentally it was exhausting. But, anyhow, I cannot complain about long matches and long points because I didnít have those. So I can say Iím ready, you know.
I just need to try to be myself tomorrow. Even though Iím playing the first player of the world, I played him many times. The only time we played against each other on clay was here two years ago, and it was three sets, tough match.
So I think I have a good chances. I showed enough quality throughout all the tournament this year. Weíll see what happen.

Q. Do you think the fact that itís on clay makes the job slightly easier in any way?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, it might be. But looking at his match today, you really donít try to think in the way that you have advantage if you play him on clay ícause he plays a great tennis on clay, as well. He grew up on clay basically.
He didnít have as much success on clay, as much as he had on hard courts or grass. But, still, he is No. 1 player of the world. He played two finals of French Open. He won Hamburg. He was more or less everywhere in the final.
So for sure heís No. 2 in the moment on this surface.

Q. Were you surprised by his reaction today? As you said, he played a big match against Nalbandian.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: He played a fantastic match. It was really impressive. I watched a little bit. Even Nalbandian had a great performance. But, you know, when you have such a great performance and you lose 6 2, 6 2, second and third set, your opponent had to be really, really great.

Well, I'm not going to go as far as that because if I'm being honest, I like what Roger said he likes:  Straight sets and crushing...  My favorite matches with Roger are when he wins like 6-1 6-0 or something like that.  I don't like close matches!  (But I'll take them as long as he wins)...  Oh... I forgot - this isn't Roger's thread!   :upside down: Sorry...I got carried away :rofl_2:
