Berdych and Nadal look like they will meet in the Quarterfinals, as they did in the Final at Wimbledon in 2010.
In the third round, Nadal is facing 119th-ranked Lukas Lacko, who probably feels lucky to have made it this far. After that, he will be facing the winner of John Isner and fellow Spainard Feliciano Lopez. Isner is nearly out of gas after his five-set marathon against David Nalbandian, and Nadal has a 8-2 career record against Lopez.
With Tomas Berdych in Nadal's quarter of the draw, Nadal must be feeling confident in his chances of advancing to the semifinals, as he has a 10-3 career record against Berdych and has won their last nine meetings.
That is a great draw considering the fact that if he does advance to the semifinals, he will most likely face Federer, who will likely be very tired after tests from guys such as up-and-coming Australian star Bernard Tomic and 2009 US Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro. Nadal is also, of course, 17-9 against Federer in his career.
