Stop whining about the time. That's not why Nadal won the match.
And when he got the violation it was windy which it why it took extra time - I think he deserves the violation generally but that was a stupid time to give it.
As for the tournament director cheering - both him & Ellison have made no secret of their Rafa love - probably not the best but it is what it is. Loved Stiller in Rafa's box too - Zoolander this year; it was Jesus (Jim Cavezial) in his box going nuts back in 2009.
