IW R4: Nadal def. Dolgopolov 6-3 6-2

Dolgopolov reminds me of Golubev when he isnt allowed to slice, erratic and out of control with streaky periods of amazing winners and even more amazing unforced errors.

His backhand was really ***** today by Nadal, unable to return the Nadal 1st serve and unable to do anything useful with Nadals heavy topspin forehands, this slow high bouncing court wasnt helping poor Dolgo aswell. Overall Nadal is not playing good tennis but crazyman Dologopolov is too good of a matchup for Nadal to have any problems.

Now I wonder if Nalbandian is too old to hang in with Nadal on these slow courts in QF?

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Another school by the Clay Warrior. He's been the better player so far in IW.

As expected, Nadal's first three rounds were boring like heaven

It's a shame Dolgo was injured on the left leg and couldn't move at all.

Nadal is cruising to the IW title guys. It's slower and higher bouncing than Monte Carlo out there. Book this as Nadal's 20th Masters title as Djokovic isn't 100%, Murray's taken an early bath and Federer has zero chance of beating him on this kind of surface.

33 UEs by Dolgo, average of 2 per game...

Rafa should get to the final, probably will win it.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Rafa was decent and Dolgo was all over the place, didn't look 100%, and had no real gameplan or answers.

Not really much else to say. Rafa has yet to be tested at this event and looks to be cruising to the final.

Typical Dolgo performance - very nice attempts of fabulicous play at times, but failing on whatever a big point. Jack Reader should explain to him the meaning of the words 'patience' and 'safety play'. It's apparently lost on him.
That said, it also makes up for the attraction. Better luck next time Dolgo. 4rth round, not bad at all, and losing to Rafa is never a shame.

As for Rafa... difficult to judge on where he stands right now, still. He didn't have to do all that much, just wait for the opponent to implode. Still I maintain my opinion that he's the major favourite for the title here. Well done, Rafa. Keep it going.

It's lucky for Nadal that a) Dolgo is an idiot in terms of tennis strategy and b) Mohammed Layhani will sit and laugh as Nadal takes double the allotted time on each break point. Not even one warning for taking over 30 seconds, which he did countless times.
