This was a good clay court match. Guillermo played well but Nando was a notch better.
Nando started slow, he was down 4-2 in the first but he really picked it up and won the set 6-4 and in the second he upped his game, led 5-3 and than lost his concentration while serving it out and got himself broken. Finally he picked it up again in the tiebreak and won for a 6-4 7-6(2) win. Pretty solid overall, should be an interesting match with Nole. :devil:

Should've been 6-4 6-3 but oh well...

Rematch with Djokovic is next.

This is his fourth consecutive QF, impressive by his standards.

Next match with Nole should be a good one.

El Futuro has been playing with great confidence :yeah: He really believes that at the moment only Nadal is better on clay. Anyway I expect him losing to D'Joke, playing third week in a row should be a decisive factor against good Rome player like D'Joke.

:woohoo: :woohoo: Well done! Don't mind if he loose tomorrow, points defended now more of it it's profit. Of course, I'm considering that just because of the fact that Nando is on his 3rd week and must be tired. On normal conditions I would go for him against Nole again! :p

Did he show tiredness today?

A little bit, but like yesterday, the fact he's just better than the opponent and has so much confidence shined through. He played a pretty good match in general, just patchy.

Unless he completely falls apart and runs out of gas, he can really beat anyone outside of Rafa in this tournament, so he has good chances against Djokovic.

He´s gonna be DEAD tomorrow almost a match per day during three weeks...
