Re: Nadal's timewasting - who's to blame?

I will check now the final game of the match.
The Slams aren't run by the ATP first of all, they are under the ITF. Do it for the whole match, if you are convinced that he doesn't take more than the alloted time.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
