Tomorrow is the big showdown. Nadal is aching to reclaim his number one position in the Roland Garros Grand Slam! If he is testy and nervous now wiping his brow, picking his pants,positioning his bottle and a number of new quirks, he will be positively jumpy when he steps onto the court. He has just turned 26. It's an important event for him. If he wins he also breaks the link and stops Djoko in his tracks. The tall Serb has his own problems, trying to hang on to number one. But watch out for Rafa! It is going to be the Spaniard who wins! What is your opinion and which player do you like best? Vamos Rafa!

I think that rafa would win the match,because clay court is his specialty and most of all he has been winning all the matches in this tournament in straight sets which clearly says that he is in top form and determination.Djokovich on the other hand has been struggling to win matches,mostly going to four setters or five or even in three setters with tie breaker and stuff.But sometimes,he might bring down the the king of clay.Lets just wait for the big match.Is it going to be like the previous grand-slam for a time of 6 hours,or is it going to be short.One to to find out.Lets wait.

Rafael Nadal will absolutely win today!! He is the hungriest tiger on the block. He has that spring in his feet, he loves clay, and the gods have all conspired greatness for the Spaniard this day. I wish though that he would be a little more humble with that look he has. I see though that he has grown up somewhat but still some kinks to smooth out. Djok on the other hand has gone brutal... a greedy little cub holding onto his meat. Mark my words though: Djoko fears Rafa. I can't wait and hope the match takes three or four hours. Vamos Rafa!!

They are equally fine players. The match was tough until rain suspended it. Thought Djoko was gonna beat it. however, Nadal was winning by 2 sets.. Hope the weather does not disturb the game today

I think it was unfortunate about the rain. Both players were affected and it is going to affect Rafael more because of his nervousness. It was grossly unfair. And Djok will have momentum now as he is tougher emotionally than Nadal I like Djok too, and also the Federer express, but Nadal is my boy... Vamos Rafa!!

I much prefer Djokovic but he will have a tough time since clay is Nadal's surface. Djokovic has beaten him on clay before, however, so there is hope. I doubt if I will get to see much if any of the match because of the time difference. Also, there is the fact that I don't particularly like watching Nadal play. So I won't go out of my way to watch.

If it is the red clay of the French Open then of course, Rafa is the favorite, but Djokovic has been red-hot in Grand Slam tournaments for a year now. It is going to be one heck of a match in my opinion. I hope that Djokovic wins this match as it would help him complete a Grand Slam though it would be two years in the making. As far as Rafa is concerned he would want to win here again to become the only man to have won this 7 times!! Cheers! Ram
