Awesome job by Rafa. Made a future Top 10 player look really bad.

Nadal is in rhythm from the baseline now, he's got rid of the rust and you won't see 20+ unforced errors in a set again. Nadal hasn't reacted well to a week (and more) of rest. He played best when he played Chile-Brasil-Mexico-Indian Wells. Played poorly in Monte Carlo. And then peaked again when he played Barcelona-Madrid-Rome. Now he's hit plenty of balls at Roland Garros and is in the form to win Roland Garros.

Nadal just one match away from getting to beat Djokovic for a 20th time.

better from Rafa, but Nishikori never believed in himself, awful body language

Better from Nadal, but still not particularly convincing. At least he got a tiny bit more aggressive.

Nishikori never really had anything to offer, but it's hard to blame him with his skillset vs someone as good defensively as Nadal is on clay.

"Well er, it's great to er, win on my birthday, no? Kei was the clear favourite against me of course, no? Since he beat Federer in Madrid, and I did not beat Federer there, no?"

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Looks like Nadal is ready to make the SF somewhat competitive.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

The KING is back, the sun is back, we witness a great demostration of clay tennis: What else can we ask for?

His next opponents already start to wish they didn't come to Paris.

BTW, Cumpleaños Feliz Rafa!

- Smell that, son? You smell that?

- What?

- MTF poop, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of MTF poop in the morning.

slightly better from fafa but lets be honest if it was a better player across the net i dont think this would have been straight sets as most of his shots were very attackable but nishikori didnt have the power to take the chances

federer fan, del potro fan and ferrer fan
