IW 2nd rnd: Nadal def. Clement 6-3, 7-6(3)

10 ACES but 6 DF by Nadal

That change of serve is really a 2-file weapon
Anyway a win is a win

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:

Nadal def. Clement | 6-3 7-6

As the commentator said, Nadal struggled but Clement struggled more. This was the worst display I recall seeing by Nadal. Certainly a worse performance than he gave in any of his recent defeats. Still, did enough to win which is what matters for him.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Clement had some chances but didn't convert. He dominated play on his 1st serve, but couldn't do anything against Nadal on Nadal's first ball.

Re: Nadal def. Clement | 6-3 7-6

i hope someone kicks his ass.

I used to like him in 05, but once he stopped federer from winning the GS, i lost all faith.

You liked him until he...won? oookay.

Anyway, not a pleasant match for him. He hit a few nice shots but overall struggled way too much for my comfort. Still, a win is a win. I'm sure he'll take it.

Well maybe he just needs to get use to this, he is trying to change. That's takes time and a lot of mathces and some losses, he'll figure out this new style. He needs time

Yeah some things you just have to ignore. But do you know if any one put the match up for download. Thanx

Re: Nadal def. Clement | 6-3 7-6

Finish was kinda shaky for Nadal. If he doesn't shore things up hes going out before the quarters.

Yeah I heard that too. I thought it's funny.
the match looked who's going to lose with more uncharacteristic errors, not who's going to win.
BTW Good Win for Nadal. I hope he keeps going by his better form.

The mind sees what it wants to see

Re: Nadal def. Clement | 6-3 7-6

It wasn't a good display from Nadal, but it was much worse from Clement. There were some very nice rallies though. Arnaud got very impatient with a ballgirl after going down breakpoints in the 1st set . Even Layhani told him: "Arnaud, be nice to them!". He sounded like a parent scolding his 5 year old.

Re: Nadal def. Clement | 6-3 7-6

today, in Dubai and even Australia, Nadal makes so many errors now, which he did not do last year at this time, its puzzling if keeps playing like this he will not be 2 for much longer.

Pretty poor from Rafa, but a win is a win. He can only get better.
