i will have to watch the highlights to see what happened......rafa should not have let this go 3 sets.....on to the semis, turkey time......
Did u watch the highlights, SdG?
Nalby is, I think, the only player that exposes the difference (in Rafa's disfavour) in talent between Rafa and the other great players of those times. The way the Argentine is able to outmaneuver Rafa and to make him run from corner to corner makes the Spaniard look quite disoriented at times. Not even Nole at his best is able to to that.
In the end Rafa prevails because he is a warrior of incredible mental strehgth and because his huge topspin messes with all his opponents heads, but those flashes and bits of humiliation that Nalby makes Nadal go through are just priceless for a painful Federer fan.
That being said, I think Rafa has great chances for a final but, still, I don't know if the Djoker will let the mental edge go in Rafa's favour by losing on Sunday. Great 2 days for tennis, probably not so great for a Roger's fan, but one cannot stop hoping, right, 0-7?
