RAFA is definitely the best player in the world right now. Let's see what's going on in Brisbane.

Nadal got just one more break than the small guy, that's not promising.

You could at least spell Goffin's name correctly.

Struggled a lot in the second. Goffin lead twice with a break and Rafa was very clutch at 5-5, saving 5-6 break points. Could have easily gone to a decider.
It seems Rafa prefers playing at night now.

Promising for Goffin, playing Murray and Nadal b2b is a nightmare for anyone, he managed to keep it really close. Could be a peak season for him ahead.

Nadal's level looks similar to that of the start of last year, hopefully he'll remain healthy this year.

Enjoy every moment of tennis. Enjoy the rise of the young, the brilliance of the peak, and the passion of the old. Enjoy dominance, enjoy diversity.

Fight. Drama. Shots. Epic matches, fun stats, tennis!

not sure if you can really base much of anything on exhos though, I mean if its not promising for Nadal to not dramatically beat Goffin then what would that say about Murray losing to Goffin? both are inconsequential. Although David is a great player at moments (rare rare moments)

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Stan Wawrinka <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Nadal was extremely clutch in the second set, has to be said. The 5-5 game in particular.

Waving Wilson magic one point at a time

KEI all the way!!!

Get well soon buddy, all the best for 2018
