Yeah, Rafa's serve looked better.
Awesome 1st set from Kendrick too.

Rafa was hitting short returns at first, but he got better and better as the match progressed.

His serve was actually pretty snappy.

I like a lot of players.

Good thing Rafa pulled off the first tie break. I don't think he would have been in too much trouble had he lost the first set. Kendrick is good but inconsistent.

Is it me being stiff or did Woodbridge just ask Rafa the most MORONIC question I have ever heard in a post match interview?

Good net play from Rafa. Service could be a little tighter. I think it's asking much of him to hit deep balls so early in a tournament, especially off clay, as consistently as he normally does. It's not too much to ask, but we know what Rafa is like on hard courts...

A more Federer-esque serve motion.

Even in the first set Kendrick's shots were inconsistant, on hollow ground. You knew it was merely a matter of time before it all came tumbling down. Next up...

Oh come on.

If Kendric couldn't do it at Wimbledon on grass coming as close as he did there was vrtiually no chance for him to make a dent today.

Captain Haddock has spoken

I now return you to your regular Rafa fawning program....

I heard that too. Hilarious

Rafa was standing close to the baseline to return 1st serves and a bit further back for 2nd serve.

What did Todd ask?

Good start for Rafael. The next two rounds should go smoothly. I'm rooting for him and Nalby to go far as I want to see a cracker of a match between them.

He said: "Maybe some fans don't know this but you sign autographs with the right hand and you play tennis with your left. Is there anything else you do with your left hand?"

Rafa and many in the crowd started laughing...
