Nadal beats Istomin at Queens 7-6 4-6 6-4
Not a great match for Nadal. Lots of wide forehands, the slice wasn't always working either. Istomin played well at times, especially the second set. He's got the guts to play against the top guys.
Nadal couldn't serve out the match at 5-3 40-15, (wide forehand, missed smash). He had to work hard to hold his service games and got broken a few times.
Definitely needs to step it up if he wants to get Wimbledon.
