Doha R2: Nadal def. Gremelmayr 6-2 6-2

Mwa, routine stuff, Rafa was terrible on breakpoints.

Forehand looking better, backhand still surprisingly good.

Rafa improving his performance again. Looking good today! Perhaps still a few too many UEs but definitely on the way up.
I don't think he needs to worry too much about his shoulder - or anything else. Playing here is the perfect way to make up for any missed time on the practice courts to get ready for the AO.

His opponent was obviously not in his league (as expected), but played suicidal at a lot of 'big points'. Nice try from Gremelmayer, good tournament for him.

Gremelmayr missing routine putaways just because Nadal was on the side of the net.

Nadal looking pretty good.

Gremelmayr has such poor movement, a pain to watch.

He played very well. The trend is getting better every day. Well done Rafi

Gremelmayr should be fined for every ball he hits

If you must know - Marco Chiudinelli, Marsel Ilhan and Rainer Schuettler. Then Potito Starace allowed him to go a step further.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Damn, Gremelmayr, don't think I've seen the guy play since he took a set off Djokovic at Roland Garros.

Congratulations, Rafael! Much sharper performance today. Of course, this turned out to be an easy opponent, but you needed a bit lesser pressure for change.

All the best against Youzhny in the QF!
