Nadal def Novak 6-1 7-6(3) 6-4 to reach US Open QF!

Solid from Rafa, still not fantastic but not bad. Novak never really caused too much of a threat to be honest.

Only 2 hours 10 minutes, I'm sure mirkaland will still grace us with some sort of a complaint

Vamos Rafa, the important thing is making Rogi's distance shorter and shorter every tournament

I didn't see that point in the TB. Friggin' ES showed only the last few games of the match and in those Rafa played worse than yesterday.

And what was the problem with the tape/ankle?

I'm allergic to morons.

Great job, Rafita!

That Dream Final of mine is getting closer and closer...

It was awesome, Rafa got lobbed, ran back, got it, couple of shots later Novak hit a shot which hit the top of the net and dropped over, Rafa somehow got it, Novak had a chance to put it away but Rafa sped across and got the volley. Would've been 4-2 down in the tie break, instead it was 3-3 and he didn't lose a point after that.

It wasn't too bad, I think the tape was just a little tight.

He took a time-out, surely it was gamesmanship.

Congrats Rafa, at least he won!

would have been really bad if old Novak won this match But although Novak hardly plays anymore, he did quite a good job!

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Nadal def Novak 6-1 7-6(3) 6-4 to reach US Open QF!

i only watched 3rd set and that was pathetic display
the worst rafa in a long time
mind you, he won in straight so who cares
especially with this joke of a draw lol
1/4 finale, no lost set with maybe 50% at his best
and the 1/2 finals is probable
he must raise his level drastically is he wants to challenge for the title
