Nadal was beyond awful in the first hour and a half or so, couldn't keep a ball in play (when's the last time this guy had 39 UE's in 3 sets?), Nalbandian played about as well as he could. After that Nadal raised his level, Nalby's dropped because of this, and it was over.
are you for real? Did you not see their matches in 2007? Nadal played way better there then he did today and still got smashed.
Nadal was awful for most of the match today. Nalbandian was so-so, and blew it when it mattered. I was especially disappointed with the timid balls Nalby played most of the time. If you're gonna make this many UE's you might as well try to hit some serious offensive shots. Alot of his shots dropped short and landed in the middle of the court. If Nadal had been in better form, he'd have won this in 2 easy sets against this Nalbandian.
