Re: Cincy R3: Nadal def. Ramos 7-6(1) 6-2
I only saw part of the tiebreak (at work), where ARV looked weak. Nadal must have been sleepwalking to let it come to a tiebreak at all.
Nadal is fortunate that he had a quick and apparently easy R3 match while his next opponent Kyrgios was 2 points away from losing. The weather is turning into an advantage for him. This is a golden opportunity for an easy 1000 points and a big step towards securing YE #1.
I support Federer, Murray, Karlovic, Shapovalov, Goffin, Dimitrov, Djokovic, Gulbis, Haase, and others on occasion.
A weak era is an era that becomes stronger when you remove the strongest players.
