Re: Vina del Mar Final: Zeballos stuns Nadal 6-7(2), 7-6(6), 6-4
Zeballos played pretty well. especially in that last set.... Nadal was ehhhh ok ok. much like whole tournament, good at moments, and other moments weirdly bad with either no movement or lapses in concentration, hitting the ball too short.
I'm actually surprised Horatio has much much more game than I had realized.
anyway of course this is the first tournament for Nadal back after 7/8 months so hard to say if he's going to be able to get back to tip top form or not.
but pretty good result, almost winning the tournament after such a long break. obviously a little heartbroken at the end there but Horatio played well and it's probably dumb to have such high hopes when Rafa has been gone for so long.
maybe he will regain his amazing clay court form again. or maybe not.
I hope he does.
congratulations though Zeballos, tonight is great night for you friend, drink up
