Verdasco's fans should purchase a tape of the match
. He played an awesome match excepting the first part of the fourth set when he had a mental slump .
Nadal played a quite bad second set and from that moment he started to raise his level gradually and ended the match playing a great tiebreak being the best player of the end showing his rank in the decisive moment . Not a great match from Rafa but he ended the match playing well passing the exam when in the middle ( second set ) he was failing.
Even when Rafa doesn't play his best match he contributes a lot of things in the mental and psychological aspect . Verdasco with Robredo wouldn't have been the same player . Rafa was the leader of the pair and Verdasco offered the good game.
