Re: Halle QF: Kohli def. Nadal 6-3 6-4

Kohly played a GREAT match. Rafa was ok, but he won RG on monday, you cna't say nothing to him
Also, the surface wasn't good for Rafa's game.

Whatever, great points by Kohly, one of the best victories in his career.

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

As expected in my book

TOMMY HAAS

Philipp Kohlschreiber - Stanislas Wawrinka - TB - NM - GD - EG - IS - DL - RF - DT - JWT

Collect money, check.
Get some singles practice, check.
Get some doubles practice, check.

Now must go home to sunny Mallorca.

Not sure. Though Rafa came to Halle for practice, and was never going to go for broke here, I really think he wanted a few more sets before Wimby. So unobjectionable and deserved win for Kohli, he had already played some good matches against Rafa.

Great performance by Kohli, made Rafa look impotent on the true grass of Halle.

YES YES YES! That wasn't the tank I expected, it was just pure Domination from Kohli. Really showed Rafa how to play on this grass. Well deserved seeding in Wimbledon now.

^^This.

Halle grass plays as grass should... Nadal can play doubles in Halle a little longer and then get a bit of rest for Wimbledon. Unfortunately for him now, Nadal now needs Djokovic to lose in the Wimbledon QF or earlier, combined with a win for him to get to #1 post Wimbledon. Nadal will be ranked #3 when the Wimbledon points drop, so he must go further than Federer does at Wimbledon to remain #2.

Respectfully,
masterclass

Expected. Doubt Rafa wanted to risk a loss to Berdych given the dominance he has over him, his good form and the fact they could meet at Wimbledon.

Kohli was good, served very well.

Should move Wimbledon to Halle, play on some true grass and get away from that other crap

Re: Halle QF: Kohli def. Nadal 6-3 6-4

I didn't think Nadal played so bad here, Kohli was just too good.

Rafa has lost QF in Queens/Halle in 06, 07, 10, 11, and now 12
