Re: Abu Dhabi SF: Nadal def. Raonic 6-1 3-6 6-3
Another solid win for Nadal. Pretty stable overall from start to finish. Served well and used his forehand effectively when it really mattered. I like what I'm seeing so far, although the question is whether or not he can keep on going like this. I'm not convinced but we'll see how he fares from here on in. But he's definitely the favourite to defend his title here.
As for Milos, he was trash. He hit his backhand pretty well at times, especially in the second set. But the rest of his game, including serve, was a disaster. He couldn't really impose himself consistently on this surface. Had a number of poor decisions on the net plays too. But he was probably just rusty after a long lay-off. Still, there are some positive things that he can take from it, and build on. I think he has a lot to offer this year. He just needs to keep it up.
Hian about himself
No words can describe me.
Without me, it would be just aweso.
Never held a racquet in my life.
I've played the game for close to 10 years. This should come as no surprise to many.
