Shanghai Rolex Masters Preview

With Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer out of the Shanghai Masters , Nadal and Murray would certainly fancy their chances and try adding another one of these unique Masters 1000 crowns. Moreover , the 6"6 Argentine Juan Martin Del potro has also decided to skip this tournament

Rafa's half of the draw might see him face his Spanish buddy , David Ferrer in the semi-finals . Before that , he's likely to open up against either Somdev Devvarman or Garcia Lopez.  David Nalbandian and Tomas Berdych are his likely 3rd and Quarter Final opponents.

1st Semi - Nadal Vs Ferrer
(Roddick Vs Ferrer QF promises to be a good one)

Murray may open up against either Thomaz Bellucci or Dimitry Tursunov and is likely to face Stan Wawrinka in the 3rd round(remember... he's had some problems against Stan in the past!) Murray's surely going to be a little jaded after winning Bangkok , finals in Tokyo(yet to face Nadal) but i still expect him to beat Wawrinka.
Simon and Fish/ Tsonga are his potential Quarter and SF opponents resp.

2nd Semi- Murray Vs Fish

Final : Murray def Nadal

A lot is going to depend on what happens in Tokyo (where i expect Murray to win). This is not a slam where Murray's game is going to go AWOL and if that stays true  it certainly will be a great contest.
