Bagelling the tour's punching bag and then breadsticking Rudolph the Servebot, RAFA might even make a QF at slams next year.

That breakpoint Nadal won in the 3rd set was hilarious, incredibly impossible ball for Raonic to get after it danced off the net.

When the ball kid was crawling on the court and wiping the Abu Dhabi logo in front of Nadal, that looked royally awesome, a bit of slave action.

Throughout this match I was thoroughly impressed with Raonic's emotion and personality that he doesn't usually display. Lots of reactions to each situation, very emotionally invested, and maybe his new coach has promoted this.

Typical antics all came out in this match: faking injuries, grimacing and cursing, trying to peg Fed, trying to start drama, undeserved final based on an exhausted old man and a joke draw.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Why is this and the other SF thread still here?

Why do you even participate in this thread, Fedtards? If you don't care, GTFO.

RAFA is LOVE! RAFA is LIFE!

Yeah this one should be in exho forum. I made one for Goffin match there. However as a regular mod I don't have the power to move it there. Maybe @Arsenalex @Time Violation can move these.

You have mastered the art of telekinesis but you can't move threads within a forum?

PS: Let's not move it too quickly, this thread provides some excellent entertainment.

Nadal is so back that he might even win the Abu Dhabi exhibition again like last year.

Milos played well in second set (with Nadal losing touch on return) but getting broken too easily at times. His BH seems to be more dangerous now, will go for it more when the opportunity arises, wrongfooted Nadal a few times going crosscourt.

RAFA was near perfection in the first and third set. He channeled his inner 2015dal in the 2nd and let Botnic steal a set. RAFA is improving and that's great news for the whole tennis community

Thanks. As long as he hasn't gotten hurt yet, that's all that really matters to me.

Yeah we both can empathise on this basis. I've sort of lost track... Who is coaching him now?

They are obsessed. Their life, incomplete without Nadal.

Sadly the same can be said about some Nadal fans.
