Much better from Rafa. He looked like a different player.

Nadal def. Tipsarevic 6-2 6-3 3-2 RET.

Nadal looking in MUCH better shape than his first round match. Tipsy's got a rib injury.

Not a lot of love for Rafa on GM tonight. I feel this thread would be on page 4 already if he had lost

He looked better but Tipsarevic was clearly not well. Who knows how he will do from here on. If he loses next match i would not be suprised.

Rafa looked sharp,and didn't seem hampered by the knees at all. Which is a relief considering how shaky he sounded about it in the pre-match interview (I hate those, by the way....they don't want to talk right then!!). It's hard to believe this was the same guy that I watched Wednesday.

Feel bad for Tipsarevic. I like him, and he must think it's really sucking that there was so much fuss about Rafa's knees and he's the one who ends up retiring.

I guess all the Spartans are sleeping. I figured there would be 11 pages of posts already.

It's the US Open. Every victory is like an unexpected gift.

I wouldn't be surprised either. Tendinitis tends to come back when you don't rest enough.

But he looked good even despite Tipsarevic's obvious difficulties, he was moving well, playing pretty aggressively, looked confident, all that.

Nadal's movement was near 100% and his hitting was at its best today.

Good performance by Nadal. I expected it to be a bit closer, buut I guess Tipsarevic did get his injury. It's a shame he couldn't finish the match.

He certainly hit the ball alot better and did not look miserable, but with an injury like that one little thing could cause him to retire. Certainly makes the tournament much more intresting with him in it, for now.
