Rafito taking control of this match.

Impressive patern of play from him the last couple of minutes.

Can we please not blame the director

Vamos for Rafa for fighting back
I hope that Delpo can turn it around.

I already thought several times "a linesman could return the ball" considering where Nadal stands at the return

Little bit of both, but you can't deny that Potro beat Djoko and Murray. Do you think they would have won today?
Rafito did beat the competition fair and square, although Gulbis probably should have finished him off.

At least he is running around like a rabbit again so saying he is only 70 percent or something is total bullcrap.

Re: Rising Francesco vol. 18 - Diana says sorry to all her fb friends

Djokovic would beat Nadal today. Delpo from yesterday also just he wasn't 100%, look at his serve speed, at least 10kmhs slower than usually, pace on the shots is also relatively slow for his standards, you'll never see Delpo hitting so many slow pace forehands like today.

And for competition... Just the fact that healthy nadal hasn't won HC title for over than a year, now comes back and in first HC tournament wins a 5th slams, i mean i am not saying he isn't great player but c'mon...

Re: Rising Francesco vol. 18 - Diana says sorry to all her fb friends

yeah exactly DelPo seems a little worn out from set 2 and onwards, should have put him away in straights.

on one hand it's remarkable that he comes back and wins this title. let's not bagatalize his effort, but Berdych was absolutely shitty/ Fed was injured / and DelPo is dead tired. Still it's a MS1000 he is snatching at the moment.

I'm scared what he's gonna do in Claycourt season. Do you think Nole can stop him?

Re: Rising Francesco vol. 18 - Diana says sorry to all her fb friends

personally not a big difference for me if nole winning anything or nadal winning everything, wouldn't like to see nole winning carrier slam but nadal is ony man who can stop him, so lose-lose situation for me, really can't believe that in last 5-6 years single one decent new comer hasn't arrived, that's how this era is pathetic

Re: Rising Francesco vol. 18 - Diana says sorry to all her fb friends

maybe there's coming a Rosol/Zeballos stopping him. It doesn't always have to be the big names.

Anyway I'm off to bed now

Re: Rising Francesco vol. 18 - Diana says sorry to all her fb friends

congrats to Rafa and his fans though, nothing but respect for the guy.

hopefully Federito will have a record standing (slams or something) when the big 4 is retired.
