Agreed asmazif. Tidy first set, good solid play, but fell apart in the second.

Probably less said about this the better, at least he won.

Nole, who is about 70% or so of his top level, is still beating top 50 players comfortably in straight sets. That pretty much says it all.

Second set was really crappy. 22/35 for Nole.

I only saw the first set and it was stunning by Nole.

Decent first set, especially the backhand down-the-lines, which are doing magic over and over.

2nd set was extremely ugly by both. Too many breaks. WTA-esque. Too many DFs. Too many UEs. Nole stepped up at 5-5 that's why he won.

And treat those two impostors just the same"

Believe in yourself, Novak.
That's all I ask of you.

It will be more interesting tomorrow (against Nalbandian or Isner).

Both Nole and Rafa struggled today, but at least Nole didn't struggle against a fat player ranked around #100.

I don't think anyone has said anything about his draw in Cincy. This is actually one of the few times he has a difficult draw. He definitely deserves credit if he can reach a final here.
