Stick a fork in Nadal. He is done. It'd be funny if Murray wins the French. lol. As far as Rafa, I bet he will retire by the end of this year. No reason to continue playing you can't even win shitty tournaments in the middle of nowhere.

This match reminded me the PHM-Nadal match in FO few years ago, except Zeballos played better than PHM (better serves and drop shots)

Either this is the start of a new Zeballos, or he just peaked and played above his level today. He was very good. We're just to seeing him be so inconsistent. Today, Zeballos had some amazing shots and actually showed a lot of fight. To win his first title ever against el rey de clay is ridiculous, and even if he does nothing else in his career, he'll cherish this forever.

Nadal was passive and obviously not at the top of his game. None of his opponents this week had the weapons to hurt him, and Zeballos shocked everyone today. I'm sure Nadal will improve as he gets in more matches. It's hard to sit out for so many months and come back at this level

What's up with this presentation? Are they going to leave Zeballos sat there on his hide until tomorrow?

If this is after the match fair play to Rafa.

Nadal's last two losses:

against grass court journeyman in Wimbledon 2012
against clay court journeyman in Vina del Mar 2013

If Nole does not win this French Open, he might never. This is his chance just like Roger got his. Rafa is nowhere his best and the rest of tour are losers on clay

Amazing match, one of the best 250 finals you'll ever to see, thoroughly enjoyed it. Very tight match, could have gone either way and some excellent shotmaking from both, especially Zeballos. Congrats to Zeballos for winning his first title in such amazing way and for Nadal too: regardless of what some haters will say, he did very well considering he hadn't played pro tennis for 8 months I'm sure he will continue improving.

From the WWW thread:

So I couldn't predict Nadal servebotting his way to a set and a tiebreak but who could really ?

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

very happy for Zeballos. He choked in his only final against Stackhovsky in Russia and I didnt think He could win one after that but He did by beating Nadal on clay.

it was better than Rosol : it was Nadal on clay and Zeballos had a lot of variations, not just ballbashing

Wow
Congrats to Zeballos, he played his heart out!

Rafa, I don't know, maybe his tactics were wrong, being kind of passive at times. He shouldn't be too upset, though. It's just about playing this month for him, not titles or points.
