What the hell does it man that Rafa got tired after 6/0 set? Anyway, good to hear that his knee if much better
I was confused by that. Thought it was a case of lost in translation and Rafa meant he was bored.
30 minutes late on because of Errani loudly
boring everyone for far too long.
I was hoping Acapulco was slow enough for clay court tennis but Almagro for the majority of the match was flying through service games quicker than he was in Melbourne. Surface will probably be slower next year with the introduction of hard courts. 365 commies were speaking about Almagro like he was Borg who'd managed to shave off three decades and had made a comeback. They were muted!
Nadal is truly a class apart when it comes to overcoming adversity. Maybe that's why this Seles fan was hooked from the first time I watched him play! The worst thing Almagro could have done was hit the ball at Rafa, good tactic - wrong player.
1-1 15-0 2nd set Almagro serving, two straight return winners from Rafa. I don't think I've seen that since 2008. Rafa's defence vintage at times.
I went for a ciggie @ 4-4 2nd set and missed the break. Evidently smoking really is bad for a person.
