Madrid QF: Nadal def. Verdasco 64 75

Closer scoreline as in Rome.
Fernando played some great tennis early in the second set, but Rafa raised his game to dig his way back.
Result never in doubt though.

If we don't stay the course, we are all dead! You hear me! (that was Verdasco's coach after Nadal went on the run).

This was terrible, just terrible! Comparable to the Roddick-Federer today, awful, awful match.

Verdasco is a choker, always has been, always will be. People dont change.

Nando you fucking clown.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

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

That looked like Spanish on Spanish crime. Call the cops!

Oz was a fluke for Verdasco.

Thank you for not reporting my post.

Nando choked spectaculary, Rafa's performance wasn't anything to write home about but he got the job done

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: Madrid QF: Nadal def. Verdasco 64 75

Utterly embarrassing choke by Verdasco. 4-0 up in the second set, Nadal holds, then Verdasco explodes. Gifts away service game with two simple errors and two double faults. From then on, barely could keep a shot in court, until Nadal was at mp.

Verdasco ended with 7 double faults.

Nadal didn't play well most of the match, you can see why he's been saying he doesn't like the bounce height and irregularity here.

Nadal enjoying the mental advantage.

Verdasco had the game to take a set (at least), but couldn't keep it together when it mattered.
