Re: RG R4: Rafa Nadal takes walking stick out from under old man Ljubicic, wins 75 63
Ivan makes too many errors for him to be a barometer for Nadal's form, much less a test. You'd expect him to bring down the game of someone who's obviously trying to rediscover his slam-winning touch.
I was looking for a tightening of Nadal's game (strong serving, no easy errors, quick consolidation of breaks) and didn't get that. But there was quicker regrouping, better management of the big points. So Ok from Nadal. I guess he's stabilizing somewhat.
His fans need hope that he "pulls-a-Williams" and ratchets up his level over the next two matches. Certainly possible.

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.
