Cincy R3: Nadal keeps on rolling, beats Haas 6-4 7-6(0)

Never in doubt.

At least Haas put some effort (not in the TB though).

Cincy R3: Nadal def. Haas 6-4 7-6(0!)

hilarious and shoking choke from Nadal when serving for the match at 6-5, after Tommy saved two match points to get it to deuce Nadal did the unthinkable, he double faulted twice in a row to hand the break back!!!!

yet Haas completely choked the tiebreak

and the streak goes on

Way to finish in TB after two DFs to get broken.

I fully expected Tommy to come to play tonight, and even thought he had an outside shot to win. Well done for Rafa, he's virtually invicible right now (still have a feeling the Joker might get him in the semis, though)

Extremely pathetic last two games + tie-break. It was the level of Futures players or even worse

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Re: Cincy R3: Nadal keeps on rolling, beats Haas 6-4 7-6(0)

Infuriating match to watch. Haas blew like 8 chances and played one of the worst games of all time to be broken at 5-5. How he could play such a diabolical breaker after breaking back defies logic. Vintage Haas performance.

Boy, Rafa choked when he served for it, but he cleaned up the mess he made of that service game quite nicely in the TB.

Congrats Rafa!

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

If his DFs and UEs in the 4th set of the Wimbledon final didn't bother him, nothing will. You have to admire Rafa's mentality on the court...

A rusty 1st game of the match and a poor TB the only differnce.

Unlucky Tommy.

Andy Roddick. Hero.

Re: Cincy R3: Nadal keeps on rolling, beats Haas 6-4 7-6(0)

Well, we can say that FakerNadal just pulled another win with cheeeating. was taking waaay too much time before 1st serve, before 1st and 2nd .. Haas just got sick of it at the end((

btw, now that the germans are back, it's great to see some real genuine anger at times, almost forgot how great it was ))
