Roland Garros R3: R. Nadal survives E. Schwank 6-1 6-3 6-4

Battle of the gods.

With the demigod prevailing.

The real final is over.

EDIT: If the match would have been best of 7, it's obvious that Schwank would have won. Look at the scoreline... The next set would be a tiebreak for Schwank.

And then, the same but reverse.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?

In second gear from what I saw, not very good, losing 8 games to Schwank

Still, just getting through in easy fashion. Still on his way to a 7th RG and has only dropped 17 games. Not as good as against Istomin but still good. Looking good, 36 W, 16 UE

Nadal looked pretty bad. Idk, Monaco might sneak a set, he plays a bit like a better Schwank (though more defensive)

There's no thing as a "better Schwank".

This was as boring as "War and Peace."

Still, we're privileged to see Rafa Nadal in action.

Nadal was all business in the first, then it looked too easy and just started coating in the next two, playing enough great stuff to counteract the wayward nonsense.

14.

The crowd sang happy birthday in French to Rafa after the match.
