Shanghai R2: [1] Nadal chokes again; def. Blake 6-2 6-7(4) 6-4

Rafa was very solid just in the first set
Second one was terrible. It looks like he wants to play 3-set matches in order to get back his well known "rhythm"
We saw a 50% of real Nadal today
A win is a win but Rafa should have won it in 2
Good luck against Robredo Rafa !!!

It's nothing fysical, Nadal just lost it and needs to find his game. 2nd and 3rd set were terrible, especially on returns...

Blake useless as usual at saving break points against Rafa.
Centre Court hasn't been empty for the first time in the third day of the event. Probably because of Nadal

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career

hmmmm James and Rafa have had some good matches where James has beaten Rafa - so it is good to see him beating James these last 2 times. I am waiting for 2010 and a really healthy Rafa to start off the year!

Robredo FTW

Still i feel when Nadal does lose here, he'll lose in straights.

Nadal now leads the head-to-head. They can shut up about Blake being a a bad matchup for Nadal. All their matches have been on Blake's favorite surface as well. Vamos!

Has Blake ever taken a set from anyone decent that didn't choke it away? I can't remember him ever beating anyone good that played a high quality match ever.

Nadal is a lucky little piggy. Blake is just shit. Had it been any top 15 player Nadal would've lost.
