Rome 1/2: Nadal def. Gulbis 6-4,3-6,6-4

Nadal was on ropes but Gulbis didn't take offered . In finish of third set Nadal was very nervous and passive , surely had in subconscious last close matches that he lost and Gulbis had the match in his hands but it was very expected to finish like that . Shame that head isn't Gulbis's strong part

Super strong stuff from Rafa at the end, lots to admire, mentally.
Gulbis has certainly matured over the past half year. Though he did overly live-and-die by those drop shots

<---"Espera. ¿Dónde están?"

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

great stuff from both.. Brilliant moments with some bad drop shots by Gulbis..

Nadal played passively but, good test from Gulbis.

Gulbis has made mental progress but I think he really didn't like serving second. Oh well, Rafa into the final, expected.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Nadal cheater again managed to get lucky. The last one was an ace but the referee is obviously a spanish fan.

Re: Rome 1/2: Nadal def. Gulbis 6-4,3-6,6-4

Same story as end of Fed and Volandri matches, Gulbis lost his head at the critical moment. Unlike those two, Nadal didn't gift the match away.

Gulbis should have had double bp on the Nadal serve at the end, then totally blew his serve and the match with two woeful dropshots and two poor errors.

Such a shame. Awesome serving display though.
