Nadal def Ginepri 7-5 7-6(1) to reach Madrid Final

Wow who is this kid? I thought he could only play on clay

Congrats Rafa, impressive tournament so far, yet to drop a set.

I thought it might have been the case!
Madrid's on clay and if Nadal wins this we'll be hearing the "Roger was absent," "the field was weak" arguments again.
Well done Rafa, Now go get the title!

Re: Nadal def Ginepri 7-5 7-6(1) to reach Madrid Final

Yea for Rafa! Robby played well for a good bit of the match but his wheels came off in the end and he got really frustrated. Nadal did a good job of not getting rattled by Robby's well-thought angles that initially thew him off and got stronger in my mind as the match went on.

Maybe it was because I have a rather nasty hangover from our friend's birthday bash but I thought that the crowd and energy were not as fun today as they were during the Radek/Rafa match yesterday. I thought that yesterday's match was a bit more fun. Regardless, I am continually impressed with how respectful the Madrid fans are in regards to the opponents of Spanish players. Very classy.

Why injured in quotes? The MRIs show that he did indeed have acute tendonitis and I doubt that Nadal and Uncle Toni would vastly shorten their practice time on a surface where Nadal needs all of the practice time he can get just to put on a show. However, tendonitis is something than can flare up and then go back down so I think that his knee problems are no where near the Marat variety. Nonetheless, he may be feeling better right now but he should indeed at least pull out of Basel.

Re: Nadal def Ginepri 7-5 7-6(1) to reach Madrid Final

i guess people should stop saying nadal can only play on clay
no doubt he is unbeatable in on clay

but winning 2 titles on hardcourt
and final in indoor (possible a title as well) is more than just being lucky

people cant say everytime that the surface (other than clay) nadal wins on is a new clay, blue clay, spainish clay, whatever.... that is just stupid....

give this kid some more credits...

anyway

VAMOS RAFA!

GO AND GET YOUR 11TH TITLE THIS YEAR! YAY!!!!!
