Very solid from Nadal. Good serve, good forehand, good everything.

Re: Nadal defeats Mathieu 6-4 6-4 and

Well done, Rafa!

Comfortable, solid, well-deserved win. Though it must be said that PHM was quite a bit of help to Rafa - way too many UEs.

Well, so it's Blake next. I trust Rafa will manage to win that match.

Another convincing win from Nadal, he's looking very confident and playing well.

Re: Nadal defeats Mathieu 6-4 6-4 and

Credit to Nadal if he makes it to the final. He'll probably have to pass known roasters Blake and Berdych to get there. I like his chances though. He's playing well and he turned the tables on Blake in IW. I think he'll take Blake in straights. The likely match against Berdych is probably 50/50, though.

Re: Nadal defeats Mathieu 6-4 6-4 and

Good, routine win for Nadal. Played exceptionally well to get the break in the second set with three FH winners in that game. Now on to a tougher challenge.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Not bad, some lovely shots but also went into defensive mode at times.

Will need to step it up against Blake, but these last 2 tournies will have given him huge confidence for the clay court season, even if he does lose to Blake.

Re: Nadal defeats Mathieu 6-4 6-4 and

Not bad, this was really a good showing of Rafa again and he had a good intensity in this match. Was fired up after good points. I found his backhand good today, too. He really had some rippers on this side, on both sides actually.

Damn, things are not looking good for the German Davis Cup team. I hope at least the 2nd singles player is showing some more weaknesses

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy
