Rome R1: Mayer d. Raonic 7-6(5) 6-4

Wow. Bit of shock.

Milos' returning was absymal. He won 4 first serve point out of 39 against Mayer's serve - 10%!! Compare that to Mayer winning 22% of Raonic's first serves. You can't win clay matches (real clay that is) on serve alone. And if you are going to do that you need to serve more than 8 aces.

Good result for Nadal.

vamos Rafa!

9!!!!!!!

Rafael Nadal Perera, the best there was, there best there is and the best there will ever be
14 Grand Slams while he was plagued with injuries is remarkable and he isn't done just yet
Mad respect for the most beautiful player I've ever seen, Roger Federer
People talking about Nole winning 4 in a row and Rafa/Roger not being able to. Peak Nadal and Federer would have won multiple CYGS against this field

Not a big surprise. On slow surfaces, Raonic's serve loses a lot of its effectiveness and he's much easier to neutralize.

Not surprising by itself because Funky Flo really is a bad match up for the big servers, but it's a shame that we still have to keep waiting for a Raonic-Nadal match to happen.
Flo should give Nadal a fight as well though, beat him last year.

Typical, all hope is now on Berdych to do something magical against Nadal in QF.

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

slower clay means milos's serve is less effective and therefor he wont be having the types of resluts in tournaments like rome and roland garros that he does on clay like madrid's

Toni must have fed him that dodgy fish Rafa caught yesterday.

Luckdal.

Someone had to say it

"In my opinion he's the best player ever. When you play tennis, playing Federer is kind of a dream because you can see he does everything you would love to do on the court" - Fabrice Santoro
