Welcome back to the tour Rafa, and it was a hard victory, but the people in Båstad are very happy to have him play there.

Hopefully he can complete the rest of the year without any more major injury problems.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

well done, Rafeal!

I was really sad that he was gone for some time as he injured but the time passed faster than I actually thought and so it's a nice surprise to see him playing and winning again now.

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

Good to see Nadal back on tour, it will be interesting he plays Santi " The Clay detective" Ventura in the next match, so it will be tough for him as Santi is in very good form. For Nadal I hope the rest of his year is injury free.

Nadal can lose for a while, I'm just glad to see that he's back

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Nadal beats Ventura 6-1 6-2 and meets Gaudio, can he beat the French Open Champion?

He smashed Ventura 6-1 6-2 and now meets Gaston Gaudio in the quarter finals ? Can Nadal take out his 3rd French Open champion after beating Moya and Costa last year?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
