Toronto QF: R. Nadal beats R. Gasquet 6-7(12), 6-2, 6-1

Never in doubt that he would win. Gasquet put up a good fight in the first set and the beginning of the second set. He had a 15-40 BP opportunity and after he squandered that, the match was then dictated by Nadal. Third set got broken early by Nadal, then nadal closed it out with a stick. Good job Gasquet for putting up a fight. Congrats Nadal on reaching the SF. The title is for yours to take.

Toronto QF: Nadal beats Gasquet 6-7(12) 6-2 6-1

Gasquet had 3 BPs to go up a break in the 2nd set, blew them and then bent over to get broken at love. He then got destroyed.

good to see that nadal found a way around his coulrophobia.

gasquet can be dangerous for people with that condition.

extremely dangerous.

Re: Toronto QF- R. Nadal def. R. Gasquet 6-7, 6-2, 6-1

The first set was as outstanding as the rest was comically predictable.

He couldn´t care less about that, he had already won his match by winning a set

First set was the highlight of this tournament so far, the rest of the match was crap.

Very enjoyable match, well done Rafa!

Gasquet... okay, you are a nice fellow, but eh... not good enough, yet. The awfull truth, I daresay.

Come on Raf, take that title right now!

That was Gasquet in a nutshell. Brillant and terrible.

Gasquet was glad to take a set and then lay down for his master. Expect more of the same from Murray tomorrow.

Re: Toronto QF: Nadal beats Gasquet 6-7(12) 6-2 6-1

After a tremendous first set, that was a pathetic performance by Gasquet. Really disgusting. He kept going for one insane low percentage shot after another and missed them time and time again. Can someone tell Richie that you don't have to take the cover off of the ball to win the point? One of the most brainless displays I've seen from him. Why not take 5-10mph off your strokes and get them in the court?

I was hopeful after the first set, but he got what he deserved in the end. The match was always in his hands, given his ability and power. He threw it away with a brainless display of tennis. Horrific.

Yeah, first set was all guns blazing. Second set was garbage.

The longest tie-break in Nadal's career, and IMO the best tie-break of the year.
