AO R2 Nadal def. Karanusic 6-2 6-3 6-2

Only amusing part of the match was Karanusic's non-stop swearing after 3-4 in the second.

Nadal didn't have to try hard to win this.

This guy is a professional? Go figure...

Rafa has a tough one next on paper, we'll see what happens.

Karanusic's attitude wasn't exactly all smiles and giggles.

I still believe in the one-handed backhand.

What happened exactly?

This guy was bullshiting previous to match that he was in better mental and physical condition than Nadal, only worse in technique

Did anyone know Karanusic had an bullet fast FH? he was hitting them over 100MPH..but for some reason he kept spinning them most of the tme.

Karanusic is a terrible tennis player. Ugh.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Re: AO R2 Nadal def. Karanusic 6-2 6-3 6-2

Im shocked at how bad some of these guys are but thats GS tennis i guess. Karanusic had the worst slice backhand ive ever seen, just floats it with nothing on in, exactly the way Rafa likes it. Rafa would have better competition playing a challenger, he better get his shit together againts Haas

Re: AO R2 Nadal def. Karanusic 6-2 6-3 6-2

Rafa should have done this faster. I was really really bored watching this so called "match"

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Because he couldn't hit it that hard anywhere near consistently.

I still believe in the one-handed backhand.

Re: AO R2 Nadal def. Karanusic 6-2 6-3 6-2

Karanusic acting like he actually stood a chance of winning was the best part of this match.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
