Re: San Pablo QF: Nadal def. Berlocq 3-6 6-4 6-4

Berlocq ran a little bit out of gas but played great and was admirable : some of his backhands and volleys were great

Nadal decided to fight as well in the end, which is nice. Not sure the final will be as tough.

I wonder what would have happened if the umpire hadn't overruled Berlocq's serve on gamepoint at 3*-2.

Overall I think he was a little bit unlucky and deserved better.

That's his average grunting level, it's quite annoying. Nadal was grunting like in the 4th set of AO '12 final, a little too much.

I don't think so : he often looked fed-up about the court and balls, and I don't think he would have been that hurt by a loss.

They'll be back when Nalbandian beats Nadal though, being more obnoxious than ever before

Overall I have the impression that Nadal has been quicker since he came back, does he still pick his ass by the way ? I think he has given up this one

Don't buy it man, the only one that was slouching was Charly. djokovicgonzalez will say anything to discredit Nadal.

I've seen several people saying it was a horrible match, but honestly I found it good, whereas Nalbandian-Almagro was awful imo

Re: San Pablo QF: Nadal def. Berlocq 3-6 6-4 6-4

I can tell how happy Rafatards are. Beating Warlocq is a huge achievement (even if he does just gift the match away due to good sportsmanship), bigger than CYGS. That's why Rafa's celebration is of an acceptable standard.
