Re: Rome R2: Rafael Nadal def. Andreas Seppi 6-2 6-3

Seppi at least played a decent 2nd set, though missing that forehand at 30-0 up in the game he lost serve, was poor.

The Toad is up next.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Great point at the start of the last game. Even a moment between Rafa and his water bottles

I have the feeling I've seen this match a thousand times before.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

yeah the bottles incident was the highlight of the match, especially considering it happened right after the point of the match.

it would be fantastic if someone could make a gif of that.

1001 maybe.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Huge mug this Seppi. He needs to do some serious doping if he wants to keep up with Blanka.
