Just average play from Nadal. Why can't he just put an impressive performance like in MC?

Solid. At times scratchy from Rafa. Though it's rarely effortless with him at RG; I suppose you could say it's his way of making things even more effortful for his opponent.

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Bellucci belongs to WTA tour with that serve - should have been leading 2 sets to 1 by now

The second longest match so far of the men's 4th round Bellucci put in quite an effort, but just a slight sense of inevitability after Nadal won the second set

Bellucci had some good game but Nadal was far too solid. Bellucci was coming under huge pressure in every single service game and the result was never in doubt.

Things getting a bit tougher each match for Rafa, but he raises his level just a bit each time aswell. Perfectly acceptable performance today, and good fight from Belluci.

15.

Nadal is getting better with each match he plays.

Nadal wouldn't have liked losing serve 4 times. But as others have said, it's a solid performance and still looks on course to go all the way.

Some crazy D by Rafa. His movement seems back to old heights.

Re: FO Rd 4: Nadal sends off Bellucci 6-2, 7-5, 6-4

I liked that match.

Both players are such great returners and for the most part they were having to pick up their second shot after their serve off their laces so it is no wonder that there were so many breaks. Thomaz played well in parts but bad shot selection let him down and a lot of it had to do with inexperience. One of the biggest letdowns for him was his lack of faith in his backhand - he kept on running round it and leaving the court open for Rafael to hit into. It's frustrating because his backhand, particularly down the line, is a very good shot. A good showing for him though, career best slam result and he gave Nadal some problems. Still love watching him play.

As for Rafa he was much more aggressive than usual and although there were a lot of errors and loose points i'm happy that he's upping it. Hopefully the more he plays aggressive, the more comfortable and confident he will become at it again because if he wants to be successful on other surfaces again then he has to. Keep on moving!
