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.
That will be the last victory of Rafa for quite some time.. With his joke mentality and pathetic game, I hope the disgusting player loses every single match next season. He's disgraceful. He should just retire. He's a joke.
