Re: Rome R3: Nadal double-breadsticks Granollers

Nadal looks very comfortable grinding away here.

I was going to say it was a quick match, but it was still 1 1/2 hours. An easy match maybe more appropriate, Granollers didn't offer anything outside a couple of games early on.

Re: Rome R3: Nadal double-breadsticks Granollers

Scoreline flatters Rafa some, he was pretty patchy but at least he was quite aggressive. Needs to cut down on the silly errors, especially those when he is comofrtably in control of the point. His serve was not as secure as against Flo either.

Granollers started brightly and could have gone ahead with a break. He was also making some poor errors throughout and wasted a few chances on return because of it.

Re: Rome R3: Nadal double-breadsticks Granollers

Thank you, Nadal. Reliable as ever.

A bit disappointed that there was no bagel, but still, a double breadstick is quite adequate.

Good work.

Re: Rome R3: Nadal double-breadsticks Granollers

The best part about this match was when Nadal was getting up from changover and accidentally knocked over his precious water bottles with his racquet. I'm surprised someone hasn't made a gif of this already. It was ROFLCOPTER WORTHY.

Granollers really did deserve more than 2 games.

Granollers, dude, do us a favour and... vanish from top 30 please. And take Troicki with you while you're at it.

Re: Rome R3: Nadal double-breadsticks Granollers

Some of those running forehand passes remind us what a miracle Rafael Nadal is.

Also a beautiful person, a beautiful person! That's why everybody rejoices when he wins, even against sub-par opponents, like today.

Tennis is lucky to have this man.
