Good two first sets from Rafa. Third set was a bit shaky, but he got it done in the end.

Zeballos is not a bad player at all, so I think Rafa did good today, well, at least better than against Mina.

DELPO

Also supporting known chokers Verdasco, Lopez and Monaco

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

It's a shame Rafa couldn't keep his 6-2 set streak alive in the third.

Pitiful play from Rafa. If he doesn't improve his game he won't last long in the tournament.

Essentially an intense practice session. He'll need to step it up if he plays Lleyton tomorrow.

That is not true, Nadal played very good, Zeb wasn't afraid, he knew he was going to lose any way but he tried to take the most points from Nadal, this is more tricky than playing a player who is careful and wants to win the match.
Also Nadal is not trying to only win, he wants to adjust to faster courts and different balls, he wants to try, to play the best, this is totally different than playing a tough opponent where you try to only win and not trying to play the best shots.

Drop shots can cause Nadal a lot of problems, Federer is rubbing his hands.

No, it will give him few points but will also take other few points. Nadal will be so lucky if Federer comes to the match hoping to beat Nadal by using drop shots. I like Roger and hope plays a good match but drop shots will not make a good match with Rafa.

Re: rg: rafa def. zeballos 6-2 6-2 6-3

Zeballos was intent on drop shotting Rafa every single time he got a chance, but unfortunately, that plan turned into a failure. He's got game though, so I'll give the Argentine some credit for competing well. Rafa was solid and adjusted when needing to. Got a feeling his next opponent will be too worn out and just might get blown out.

There are times, rare moments, when the greatest of champions fall. Maybe because of a bad day or maybe there's pain within. One thing you can be sure of, is that all the great champions will bounce back again. It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. But one day, they'll be back again. And they'll be better than ever. Why??? Because that's what great champions do. They survive.

It hurts to watch avarage onehanded backhands against Nadal's topspin.
