Rafael Nadal sets up a semi final date with Andy Murray

Renewed rivalry between Nadal and Murray takes place on Friday with Murray vying to reach the finals of French Open 2014. If he does so it will be his first clay court final. Rafael Nadal is the defending champion.

It is hailed as clash of the titans between the two. Two different styled players-one right hand and the other left hand. Comparisons of all sorts have already started that it will also be hailed as the clash of Adidas vs. Nike. It is not often that the two have come together often and the time is ripe for Nadal to surpass Murray. Both have had a tough duel in their quarter final match but it was Nadal’s sheer excellence that will be struck in his mind when he plays against Murray. The styles do not match with each other hence, one cannot presume who is going to win but one has to go with Nadal as he is the ultimate King of clay.

When it comes to Rolland Garros, Nadal’s tryst of love does not seem to end as it is his favorite grand slam and obviously, he is coming in with a lot of confidence and vigor. If he triumphs he will have 9 French Open titles under his belt. It was in 2011 that Murray lost to Nadal consecutively in the semi finals of three grand slams- Wimbledon, U.S Open and Rolland Garros. Nadal has lost only once at the hands of Robert Soderling in French Open.

Will Nadal continue his winning streak and reach the finals of yet another French Open grand slam is a matter of days. He will be hoping for a fitter body and presence of mind that he will need when he plays Murray.

Isner French Campaign Over

Mardy Fish’s countryman John Isner saw his campaign in the French Open 2014 getting finished yesterday as he suffered a straight set defeat against Tomas Berdych of Czech Republic in the round of 16. Isner lost the match by 4-6, 4-6, 4-6.

Isner had the opportunity to be the first player from the United States of America to make it to the quarter finals at Roland Garros in more than a decade, but, he couldn’t do so.

The last time that an American male player had entered the French Open quarter final round was about 11 years back. Andre Agassi had done that back then.

Many people were backing Isner to go till the latter stages of this year’s French Open because of his recent form and the way he started the tournament, it appeared as if those people would prove to be right, but, in the match against Berdych, the 29 years old fell completely apart.

He just couldn’t match Berdych’s energy on the court. The speed with which the Czech was moving and the way he was timing his shots, he never let Isner settle down.

Isner is one of those players who don’t believe in swift movement on the court. He relies more on his capability of flattening people with his booming serve. But, Berdych is an equally good server and in addition to that, he is a far better mover on the court than Isner and that was the real difference between the two players.

Speaking in the post match interview, Isner said, “I couldn’t get going at any point of time. I should have been a little more aggressive, but, unfortunately, the day was not mine.”

This is the second time that Berdych has reached the round of 8 at Roland Garros.
