Unexpected result. How did he let Gonzo take 6 games?

Football is one of the few areas of life where even if you're untutored, you can go to a ground and see George Best beat three men, and you can realise, 'I have seen genius.'

too easy. Played really well for a stretch in the middle and then put it on cruise control

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

Actually Gonzo played awesome. both traded grandstrokes to max till Nadal showed who is smarter, yet Gonza is beast till the end. Nadal is anything but love challenge and Gonzo's playing style today. Good practice for tomorrow.

Good training for Rafa.

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

Gonzo peaked in the 3rd Game.

And some people say that Fed's dominance was boring.

That shot from Nadal was incredible. All his weight was going one way and he whipped the ball the opposite direction.
