Think Andujar (if he makes it) will be the toughest player he could face here, even more difficult than Chardy. I remember RG 11 when he really had a tough time dealing with him.

So happy to see Rafa back on courts Heis now far from his custom version, but I hope to see him getting better and better day by day. The first serious proove will be an hypothetical match agains Chardy in Viña. ¡Vamos!

I'd give Nadal more of a match than Mugaco

Good one. I'm sure Rafa is quaking in his boots, scared by the mere thought of facing those reknowned titans of the game and mental giants to boot.

He'll be more tested this week by Chardy (if Chardy makes semis) than by those two jokers

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Of course he won't. Warlocq won't allow that travesty to occur

Nadal isn't going to get "tested" by Chardy. He's an elite level player, not Del Potro.

Maybe he will face the Warlocq this tournament. That would be a real clash of titans.

Re: Vina del Mar R2: Nadal trolls Delbonis in his comeback 6-3, 6-2

good come-back match, and surprisingly quick between points, nice if he can adapt to that new rule but I guess it might be different when matches will be less relaxed for him. He overall had a relaxed face, which I liked because usually I don't like his tortured face.

I stopped at 6-3 3-0, I had so much missed the "suspense" of Nadal's matches on clay

clearly he was playing very well in the first games of the second set

Good score after being out for 8 months which in tennis is an eternity.
