Barcelona R2: Nadal def. Garcia-Lopez 6-1 6-2

Good match from Rafa outside of a hiccup in the middle of the second set. He hit his forehand in all directions and hit it with confidence. GGL wasn't good enough and didn't really believe he could win, but good fight from him to not get bageled in second set since it looked like it would happen.

Tough one.

Rafa was good, his serve was off though. Trademark wobble and broken () at *4-0 in the second.

GGL was as bad, if not worse, as the scoreline suggested. Woke up in the end and played some decent points

My stream died after Rafa netted a smash to go BP down. Was all too easy until that point, GGL was pretty awful.

The Great Grass Lord bears little interest in matches such as these where most people expect the end result and the winner. He feels okay to win 3 games then get the fuck out of there to do something more worth his time.

GGL usually raises it vs fellow Spaniards, but vs Nadal in Barca? Hard to have much belief.

GGL strategic tank before RG title
Hard to tell how good Nadal was thanks to the brutal UE barrage Garcia-Lopez unleashed upon him

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: Barcelona R2: Nadal def. Garcia-Lopez 6-1 6-2

good times esspecially considering Garia Lopez's great form weeks ago.... then again this is clay, and one kind of had to expect that GL was going to try his best to 'go for it' and either hit his spots or have a ton of errors

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3
