Nadal didn't serve too well and had to save a few BP's here and there, got broken once in the second set, but was solid off the ground, especially the forehand side. Nieminen had 2 SP's in the first set at *5-4 15-40 but couldn't convert. He had a good tactic and was mixing it up nicely but his second serve failed him, again. Nadal into his first hardcourt Slam SF.
Awful serving today
He's in the semis, thank God. He'd have been crucified if he hadn't made it with his draw.
Very low 1st serve percentage by his standards.
Hilarious comedy jumping smash in the third game of the third set
Not that impressive, but not awful
. What more could I ask for?
