06/02/2013, the day tennis was sparked back into life. The Return of the King
Started off shaky, losing serve. But after that, he looked much better than I expected to be honest. Still some sloppy errors, but can you blame him after 7 months of doing nothing? There were some vintage forehands. We should be in for a glorious season
Vamos Rafa, so good to have you back
he was shaky at times, but I agree with you GSMNadal, he was really MUCH much better than I expected. I mean not bad to go 3 and 2 against an ATP player when you've been out of the game for 8 months.
he really began to find his form in the second set. what's great about Nadal is he is so risiliant, he seems like he will be shaking off his rust fairly quickly.
the next few days should be interesting. go Rafa!
P.S. I predicted 6-3 6-2 so cheers!
