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.

Long way to go for Rafa, but did well to get through none-the-less.
Well played, Istomin.

Istomin too nervous at the end, serve disappeared his last two service games.

To bad Istomin chooked a couple of service games, the last one being up 40-15.

Moonballer looks like a clown in his shirt and played like one.

The world #1 folks Istomin has no serve and choked almost as much as Nadal. Expect another QF/SF at Wimby with Nadal playing like crap this year, but no way he wins it ever again.

Nadal almost choked at the end.

Not good, but I don't worry. Grass is tricky, especially at Queen's and after RG. At least he is not out like Roddick and soon Djokovic.

Similar to the Nishikori match 2 years ago.

Good stuff from Istomin.

But the haters will say that Nadal is a:

Cheater
Mug
Disgraceful #1
Injury faker
Choker
Won't win Wimbledon

And some more I'm sure.
