USO R1: Nadal beats Phau 7-6(4) 6-3 7-6(4)

Too bad it wasn't as epic as the Nadal vs. Alun Jones match of last year.

USO R1 : (1)Rafael Nadal (ESP) d. (Q)Björn Phau (GER) 76(4) 63 76(4)

3 hours. Great great match from Björn, he fought soooooo hard and gave the crowd some entertaining stuff. Nice try, Björn. He made it a good match with some spectacular winners and rallies. Hopefully he can gain some confidence from this and gets back to the Top100. Auf geht's, Björn!



Congrats Nadal, and it was a perfect first round match for him. He already is into the tournament now.
