Poor returning from both of them so far. The lefty serves are
bothering the lefties. I don't get it.

It's normal. Lefties are rare and unusual to play against. "Nobody" likes
them.

Why would Nadal be comfortable playing against a lefty?

Makes no sense.


Verdasco is hot, just like Baghdatis, Gonzo and Tsonga were. Plus he's a
lefty which is another bad thing for Nadal.

But otoh, Nadal is better than he was last two years on HC, he's more
experienced too and in theory should win this match.


I hope he does, not for him, but for me.
I am sick of boring AO finals.

But as a FedKAD I want a nice easy slaughter victim for Fed.

Fair enough.

Why not? Lefty serve is very difficult to handle.

You could almost hear Nadal think "so THIS is why people hate my wide serve on
break point..." as he walks to receive the next.
