Re: US Open 08 R4:  Rafael Nadal grinds down Sam Querrey 6-2 5-7 7-6(2) 6-3
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.
