Rome QF: Nadal def. Verdasco 6-3 6-3

Some entertaining forehand to forehand rallies but Nadal was just too consistent again. It was competitive at 3-3 in the first and 2-2 in the second but the winner was never in doubt.

Disappointing match really. Neither at their best. Rafa looked poor in the first few games, started playing safer, and Nando made the errors on the big points. He played an absolute shocker to get broken in the 2nd set.

Pretty easy in the end for Rafa. Up against Pico or Gonzo next.

Horredous match. Dreadful play from both.

Hope Nando is okay, it looked like he was crying when the physio was working on his knee.

Those "6-3 6-2 if I play an awful match" pics should be in full swing in this thread. Uninspired from Nadal, but just enough to win and win without too many hassles. Some good stuff from Nando but wildly inconsistent. Hope the injury tweak isn't serious

16.

Congrats' Rafa ! It was a tough match... Fernando made 20 winners and Rafael did only 6...

Rafael in semi final, that's the point.

Rafael Nadal is the king.

1 Australian open, 4 Roland garros, 1 Wimbledon... what's next?

36 TITLES

Ce gars est juste phénoméNadal...

I just can say, Nadal knows how to play Nando... The result is inevitable...

Djoko can only keep up with Nadal for 1 set. He has absolutely no chance vs. Nadal in a 3 out of 5 set match. He can't stay focused for that long. He cannot keep up with Nadal in a 5 set match mentally or physically. Nadal is just too good. SICKKKKK defense. You need to hit like 20 amazing shots in a row jut to win one point.
