Zeballos has always been a player to watch, but this was certainly unexpected especially after Rafa broke him at love to begin the third set.

But as always, until RG, you really can't say much about Rafa. Now if he lost at RG this year, something could be said then, but as is, really nothing can be made of this.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Just gotta love these tards who come up with shit like this. Bleacherreport is full of shit articles like that one. I used to go to the site but I just don't bother anymore.

Nadal is still undefeated when fully fit, motivated and rust-free.

I wasn't so sure before, but I can confirm that I'm overjoyed that he's back. Tennis was getting depressing without the possibility of a piggy roasting for 7 months.

The only thing that I didn't like about the ceremony at the end was Zeballos biting the trophy ala Nadal. Really dude? You just beat the guy and now are doing his signature move in front of him? Of course Nadal doesn't have a monopoly on it but I thought it was more than a little odd.

It looks like these two met at the 2010 FO. Nadal won 6-2 6-2 6-3.

Anything can happen in tennis.

Nice to see Rafa fans taking the loss well despite fedtards best efforts at goading.

wonder if the guy he greets from the crowd is his coach or his dad?
Is it me or did neither of them shake the umpire's hand?

is there any way to attach the final set of Rosol's Wimbledon match to the to the back of this video? It'd be more fun that way

Gotta say, the way you've basically turned into a Nadaltard these days is fairly disgusting, considering you hated both Fed and Nadal with a passion for years. Have some integrity.
