Rafael Nadal plays fantastic so far on clay and won already two trophies: Monte Carlo Masters and in Barcelona.
The Spanish Matador reached the semifinal by losing only one set. This happens in quarter-finals against Joao Sousa which was very surprising given the form of Nadal at the moment.
Andy Murray starts his season on clay in Monte Carlo where he loses exactly from Nadal in the semifinal with 2-6 6-4 6-2. The Britain also lost only one set so far at the beginning against Radek Stepanek, but after that, he beats in two sets Gilles Simon and Tomas Berdych.
Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray face each others 9 times on clay and Nadal won 8 of them and lost only once in Madrid last year when Matador was a long time injured and didn’t play very well. Consider the facts and the form of Nadal at the moment I think that he will beat Murray and reach the final at Mutua Madrid Open.
