Poor Andy...at least we know he can hang with Nadal.

Dimitrov *should* win tommorrow though, if he plays anywhere close to his best

Rome QF: Nadal def. Murray 1-6 6-3 7-5

Another day, same story. Nadal struggling and struggling and crawling back to recover from a horrible start. Just like yesterday Nadal reduced the number of unforced errors after the 1st set and won in the end

Anyway i doubt he can afford to make that many mistakes on sunday, even just for a start. But we'll se

Again Nadull hit merely 2 winners in the first set, and dulltards arguing dull is not a pusher.
The last two sets showed why Murray is so weak on clay. No serve, barely forehand winners, UEs exploding. And dull just beat this Murray by a slight edge.
I must say this staminadull is simply out of this world. Three 2.5+ hrs matches in a row and I can't see any fatigue on him. Science will breakthrough if someone solves this dull mystery.

Re: Rome QF: [1] Rafael Nadal Parera def. [7] Sir Andrew "Clayray" Murray OBE 1-6 6-3

Haha Nadal is called the clay goat but he only beats Clayray, back from serious surgery, due to a choke? Bjorn Borg would never.

TSONGA

DJOKOVIC

FEDERER
DEL PO-DIMITROV-MURRAY-WAWRINKA-GASQUET-JANOWICZ-BERDYCH

OBJECTIVE AND UNBIASED NADAL FAN
NADAL= Excuses, bending the rules, fluke 2010, weak clay field, classless celebrations, lucky draws, first player to lose 3 consecutive GS finals to the same man, 3 consecutive losses to players ranked outside 100 at Wimbledon including injured Darcis, only beats injured or UE strewn Djoko or Fed, embarrassed by Stronga. VAMOS!

Terrible match, even if there were 2-3 great points.

The choke was at 5-5 was foreseeable. It's like there is a plot.
