Federer vs. Nadal: Coming Up!

Tennis fans have a special treat coming up: the second ever Grand Slam semifinal between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal!

Federer played picture-perfect tennis to blow Argentine Juan Martin del Potro off the court 6-4, 6-3, 6-2.  A few hours later, Nadal finished off his much more difficult 6-7 (5), 7-6 (6), 6-4, 6-3 defeat of Tomas Berdych to set up the two champions' clash.

Until Novak Djokovic's recent ascent, Federer and Nadal have been ranked the world No. 1 and No. 2 in some order since 2004, which is why they have played 27 times in their careers but are meeting in the semifinal round for only the second time.  

So, here are five bold predictions for the upcoming Federer vs. Nadal semifinal match!
