Cincy R2: Nadal def. Dent 6-2 7-5



Rafa didn't need to play his best against Dent, just put his foot on the gas when it was needed

Nadal was atrocious. One of his worst display of all time. He made some Federer like errors.

Subpar performance from Rafa. Dent 21 UEs in the first set, but led 4-2 in the second. Needs to step it up.

R3 vs Julien.

Dent has awful serve placement . Somebody else with his serve speed would be unbreakable

Re: Cincy R2: Nadal def. Dent 6-2 7-5

WTF happened in the second set? Embarrassing from Rafa when he actually played quite well in the first set.

Oh well, not surprising if you're a fan. He ALWAYS plays badly in the early rounds, especially on HC. At least he won, which is the most important thing. He also avoided a third set, which is good.

He needs to improve though. This is not good enough if he wants to win the tournament, let alone USO.

Edit: not enough winners, too many EU's. And what about aces? Not ONE from Rafa? Sucks. He's supposed to be the best player in the world, and he can't even produce one ace when he plays a fat guy ranked around #100? Really?!?!

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

You mean "Nadal outmugs Dent 62 75"
Horrifying stuff. Nadal is looking like he will keep his New York success going at the USO at this rate

Good in parts from Dent. The 149mph missile being the highlight of the match.
Rafa not impressive here, dont let anyone kid you otherwise.

Glad Dent was able to recover from the first and make the second set competitive. Also glad Rafa rescued the second set, didn't need to be playing three sets today. The nature of the first set, with Dent making so many errors, stopped Rafa from ever getting going today. But with each passing match that he doesn't show some kind of consistant form I worry a bit more for his USO chances.

12 winners from Rafa... He didn't need to do much, but I really wasn't thinking Dent would actually be up a break in the second set. He's got work to do and his movement looks so awkward to me

Re: Cincy R2: Nadal def. Dent 6-2 7-5

watching nadal on hardcourts makes me ask myself why on earth am i a fan of this guy.
rafa is awful, horrible, abysmal, disgusting, shameful and clueless on hardcourts, especially the ultra fast cincy and USO courts.

rafa's record at cincy is won 10 matches and lost 6.


can someone please tell him to stop playing after wimbledon, because he is an embarrassment on fast hardcourts.

i missed alot of work to watch this bullsh*t from rafa.

that francisco roig coach must be the worst coach ever, and nadal will never win a title if he wears a pink shirt.

Re: Cincy R2: Nadal def. Dent 6-2 7-5

Nadal didn't bother too much at 2:4 in the second set. How many options there was? 6-2 7-5 or 6-2 7-6 or 6-2 3-6 6-3. Nadal must have been stoned to lose to Dent
