Great forehand to end it.

Overrated match- it was on Blake's racket all the way through and he shit his pants.

Once again Nadal couldn't hold on in the 2nd set, loses it in a TB, then comes back to win it in a third. Pretty high-quality tennis most of the time.

never in doubt, Blake outplaying Nadal when he is trailing and not under pressure, and falling short when the pressure is on.

This is seriously a major offense by Nadal. I wouldn't call it racism but the fact that Nadal beats a brother so many times after being his pigeon clearly shows that something's going on. Aside from joking, Blake had a plane to catch. No fair.

Choketastic from Blake at the end.

Good heart to come back from a break down in 2nd and 3rd sets though, but bit meaingless if you're going to give it away at the end.

Good match, some nice bit of choking by both along the route...

Congrats, Rafa! Take your chances here... draw is opening up nicely for you!

Typical Blake. He has been losing matches like this the whole career.

Re: Shanghai R2: Nadal def. Blake 6-2, 6-7(4), 6-4

Blake sucks. He really does. He should've won this match. He gave that last game away. I thought after he broke back, he was going to beat Nadal. But he is clearly a step slow. Either too aggressive or not aggressive enough and Rafa isn't scared of him. But I'd be surprised if Rafa wins this tournament. I'd be surprised if Rafa wins any tournament without major help from players (choke jobs) and organizers.
