It feels like a deserving duo in the Madrid Open final. Wavrinka has played amazing tennis of late, he won Portugal Open, beating Ferrer in the final and yesterday he came back from a break down in the final set to defeat Berdych 6-3 4-6 6-4.
Nadal, well what can you say? He has played seven tournaments since his long injury time-out and he’s been in seven finals. A stunning record! Now he’s obviously the big-time favorite in the final.
But no matter what happens in the final, still an impressive tournament performance by Wavrinka. He’s been knocking on the door of bigger things a long time now and he has the game for the top ten.
Hopefully he can keep his level of play for Rome Masters and Roland Garros.
My prediction for the Madrid Open final? 6-4 6-4 to Nadal.
