US Open 08 R4: [1] Rafael Nadal grinds down Sam Querrey 6-2 5-7 7-6(2) 6-3

Wow what an amazing match still think that if Big Sam took the 3th he probably could have pulled off an upset.

Can't believe that Nadal is actually played worse than Federer.

Piss poor stuff by Rafa after blowing a 5-3 lead in the second set.
At least he won.

That was a very hard slog for Nadal - harder than it seemingly needed to be at 6-3 5-3.

Not his best performance, and Sam went redline for a while.

well played Querrey, he had a chance to do a bit more if it wasnt for that 4/16 in BP conversion

Rafa should be thankful for his draw. Playing Querrey (despite he gave all his heart tonight) in 4th round and Fish in QF is the true definition of a mug era

horrible display from Rafa. Sam managed the wind MUCH better than Rafa did. His forehand was sailing all day long. He's QUITE lucky he wasn't playing somebody with a good return.

Hideous match. Both guys were sloppy at key moments.

Congrats to Nadal for the win.

And big congrats to Sam for how he played. I didn't think he had this match in him.

Very exciting match!
Rafa below par, that's obvious - but there should be credits towards Querrey, who absolutely gave his best ever.

Congrats to Raf :hug, kudos to both gentlemen for the entertainment!

It really doesn't matter how hard the match was, because he's sure to pick up his game in the next couple rounds, and he has a good draw. Fish, match-up wise, is no problem for him. Del Potro and Nishikori are way too raw to do more than perhaps take a set, and Murray and Wawrinka have a proven losing track record against Nadal. He does have to focus on keeping those forehand errors down, but the first serve percentage is sure to improve (it was fine the first couple rounds).



I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.

Nadal clearly struggled against Querrey's height. Sam is really good. It was great to see Rafa's relief after he won.

Keep up the good work, Rafa!
