Shanghai R3: [1]Nadal def [14] Robredo 6-1 6-4

Decent match. Nadal seems to be getting better. Or maybe it was just Robredo playing crap with 14 Winners to 30 UE

YAYYY~!!!

When I saw Rafa would be playing Boredo, I immediately took him off of my betting blacklist - I mean, him losing to Robredo - NO WAY.

Rafa seems to be in good form right now, and with all of these retirements going on, has a good chance of getting far. Good luck in the next round, Raf!

rafa has reached at least the QF in all the masters 1000 so far. I think it's the first time he's achieved such a thing, not bad at all

W Indian Wells
Qf Miami
W Monte Carlo
W Rome
F Madrid
Qf Canada
Sf Cincinnati
Qf Shanghai

Same for Nole

"Hit the road jack"

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Yes, this was 3rd game in the 2nd set for Rafa to break back. Good game, yes.
I still liked this match no matter how bad you are making Robredo to be playing. Yes, he made UEs, he was hitting balls with his BH that were flying somewhere in the stands but still Rafa was playing well. He was coming to the net quite often and won most of those points. If not anything else Rafa is building up his confidence and trying out some of his shots. What worries me is that Rafa became a bad front runner. Whenever he's having the lead by a break he gets immediately broken back

Good luck against Ivan, Rafa

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better
