What do you call moonballing? Everybody can moonball. Can you do this?
At the other end of the spectrum was the Spanish player Sergi Bruguera, who generated topspin at an incredible rate that averaged over 3300rpm, more than 3 times as much spin of Mary Jo. Bruguera's average on 8 forehands was actually 3331rpms, and included the single fastest spinning forehand we recorded, an amazing 3751rpms in a match against Marcelo Rios.

In men's pro tennis it normally takes about 1 and 1/3 seconds for the ball to travel from one playerUs racket to the other in a baseline exchange. In the case of Sergi Bruguera's forehand, this means the ball is turning over itself 70 to 80 times as it travels to his opponent!

Re: Nadal def Bracciali 6-4 6-2

Rafa made a bit of a meal of it in the first set, he'll need to be much more focused in the next round.

Bracciali played some nice shots, and did well to hang in there after getting broken in his first two service games. He's annoying to watch though because of his girly moaning (and funny at the same time).

I'm allergic to morons.

He'll have to play better against Youzhny.

Re: Nadal def Bracciali 6-4 6-2

maybe rafa thought that it will be an easy match (easier than a match vs federer for exemple) and so he wasn't realy concentrated...vs misha he'll have to play a better match and stay concentrated during all the point or at least the more important...he perfectly knows how to do that so vamos rafa! win another title in roma!

Re: Nadal def Bracciali 6-4 6-2

Bracciali was relaxed so he did alright. He certainly is better than his ranking now suggests but hes been out of form lately. He will be good on the grass season again hopefully.

All Italian Players

Especially Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini

Juan Martin Del Potro

Roger Federer

Thomas Berdych

Fernando Verdasco

Re: Nadal def Bracciali 6-4 6-2

Thank goodness Bracciali's embarrassing girly-girl moans have been silenced.

Vamos Rafa. Step it up

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Pick it up Rafa.

You lost 6 games to some nobody.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker
