Toronto QF: Nadal def. Kohlschreiber 3/6, 6/3, 6/4

As expected, Philipp made it competitive and took at least a set. Philipp had his chances in the third but could not convert and subsequently got mentally down on himself and let Nadal back in. Nadal will have to step it up against Murray who is playing very solid. Nadal started playing some inspirational stuff near the end of the third set against Philipp, but he needs to sustain good play against Murray.

Nonetheless, Philipp is always fun to watch, great touch and hits the ball big. It was a good week for him.

Stats-


Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Kohli knows his place in tennis and he's not about to budge from it..

Nadal was horrible in the first set and Kohls was playing pretty well.. Hopefully he'll do some damage at the US Open..

this loss really hurts kohli had 0-30 and 30-40 in that second set and if he could have broken it quite possibly could have ledt to his first win over nadal

Philipp had chances in the 3rd set but couldn't take advantage...Rafa wasn't playing that well but was able to turn that one around well. Nadal-Murray will be fun

Even Nadal at his worst can beat guys like Kohli. Good job Rafa!

I personally guessed Rafa in 3 and I was right. Like I said, he usually have it tough facing Kohli.

DELPO

Also supporting known chokers Verdasco, Lopez and Monaco

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

Re: Toronto QF: Nadal def. Kohlschreiber 3/6, 6/3, 6/4

Nadal didn't have to do anything. It was NID Kohli would choke if he had a chance to actually win, and that's exactly what happened on the third set bp. Sad that only the top players have the mental stability to take each other out, but that's the state of tennis at the moment

Nadal had slow legs today.
Kohlschreiber had his chance while served at great level

Nadal didn't play great but he played well enough. Philipp's serve completely vanished in the third after being great for the first two sets. Competitive stuff. Looking forward to Murray-Nadal.

Kohli did better than I expected him to.

Now get the title Rafa!

Rafa was woeful in that first set, just awful. Much, much better after that though, sometimes exceptional. Match hinged on the first six games of the third which were all very very tight, bar one love service game for Kholi. Good effort from him though, never went away, made Rafa step it up to beat him.

Seen this script play out a million times before.

Nadal against offensive player that gets out to hot a start but folds when Nadal cuts down on the errors and goes into retrieving mode.

Snooze worthy stuff
