This is a battle of the lefties that is expected to be a full time baseline affair.
Wednesday July 5, 2017 8:23 
8:25
Nadal has suffered a steep decline on grass that can be traced back to the Wimbledon final in 2011; It is then that Djokovic planted the seed of doubt in his mind and made him look mentally weak, which was almost unheard of from Nadal up to that point
Wednesday July 5, 2017 8:25 
8:26
Bad luck followed and years in a row he was beaten by players ranked outside of top 100, but who played like possessed men on those occasions
Wednesday July 5, 2017 8:26 
8:27
But this year is the year of redemption for Rafa as he broke many curses, making the AO final when no one was expecting it at all and nearly sweeping the clay court with the historic win in Roland Garros

Wednesday July 5, 2017 8:30 
8:31
As any respectable American pro tennis player, his biggest weapons are the FH and the serve; He has tremendous explosiveness off both wings, which helps him make up for the small body frame
Wednesday July 5, 2017 8:31 
8:33
Nadal is the overwhelming favourite without a doubt, but it doesn’t mean we can’t expect a good, entertaining match as Young has just recently played Djokovic and put up a good resistence
