Nadal will lose, he won't be able to go 3 unless he wants further damage.

Re: Sunday (5/18/08) OOP & Scores

I think Rafa will give it a shot for about 3,4 games and then he retires.

Rafa isn't comfortably moving on the court.

Re: Sunday (5/18/08) OOP & Scores

Rafa really went for his FH there...

It looks as though he's going to try and keep the points short (for once)

Nadal fight off a Setpoint with a wonderful forehand.

Re: Sunday (5/18/08) OOP & Scores

rafa hits 2 bad shots for every 1 good shot so unless fed starts making errors it's going to be very hard

Re: Sunday (5/18/08) OOP & Scores

Ironically it's Nadal who's now playing the amazing tennis, after the injury time out.

Sometimes after a long match players come back out a bit slow. Rafa seems to be fired up now.
