Nader? Trotsky?

I don't get it.

But good job, Rafa. He's starting to play better. Slowly but surely.

Re: Nader def Trotsky 6-4 6-3 6-0

Nadal, the only player on tour who can completely humiliate his opponent whilst hitting fewer winners

What the hell happened Troicki, fell apart after losing the break in the second set.

Good job Rafa!

I still believe in the one-handed backhand.

Re: Nader def Trotsky 6-4 6-3 6-0

The scoreline may be little decieving. Troicki had his chances in the first and second sets, neither were as routine as the scoreline suggests. However, the match itself was never in danger and Troicki basically faded after being broken back in the second set and never won another game.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Nadal was solid; Troicki was abysmal.

11 games won in a row after being dow 1-3 in the second. I think that BP at 2-3* in the second where Rafa hit a FH DTL from outside the court and ball went next to net totally crashed Troicki. He never won a game after that.

Congrats to Nadal
Victor, after winning two rounds, after being the first set down in both, I thought he would not melt that easy. But he did Still congrats to him for making the 3rd round at his first USO

Troicki gave a good fight in the first two sets. Still the outcome of this match was never in doubt.

Well done, Rafa!

Useless match. I'm happy I didn't watch it.

Re: Nader def Trotsky 6-4 6-3 6-0

Nadal was pretty good but he's back to hitting a lot of stuff too short for no apparent reason. I understand that that happens when he's under pressure but today he was hitting a lot of balls around or inside the service line even when they were fairly routine shots that he had time to set up for. It didn't matter though because Troicki was too easily rattled.

So, in other words, the match was in Troicki's hands but he choked?
