Obviously, you play a lot of mind games with yourself, but it is important to always believe that you can play your best, perform your best, and in the end, your convictions are stronger than your doubts.

That will be the last victory of Rafa for quite some time.. With his joke mentality and pathetic game, I hope the disgusting player loses every single match next season. He's disgraceful. He should just retire. He's a joke.
Re: Nalbandian def Navarro Pastor 7-5 7-6(4) 7-6(6)
That was a sensational match and both players were superb. Pastor really did put in an excellent performance and forced David to play so well to overcome him. David's backhand was as regal as ever, and I also was pleased the way his 1st serve, forehand and volleys were functioning. I loved the effort of Pastor. His 1st serve under pressure at times was unbelievably good, and he unleashing some blistering shots with his forehand and one handed backhand. The atmosphere was pretty electric, and the fans were very appreciative of both players, and rightly so. Vamos Nalby
Re: Notorious D.A.V.E. takes out Navarro Pastor 7-5, 7-6, 7-6
Good match. INP rushed the net in both serves (1st and 2nd). Nalbandian did enough to get the win with some good passing shots in key moments (plus some help from INP in the form of DF). Finally Nalle shed at least 10-12 pounds according to my visual estimated. He looks very fit out there.
