Stan has a lot of chances in the first set but couldn't capitalize on them

Most of their matches go through the same pattern: First set is tough, Rafa wins and then Stan folds in the second :o

Rafa is not very sharp but that's expected after not playing for so long :yeah:

Insane first set, the tiebreak was ridiculous. Tons of chances for Wawrinka to close out the first.

Nadal was clutch saving the set points in the first set.

Nadal was shaky at times, my optimism is cautious.

Typical Wawrinka :)

He had advantage during the rally at 6:5 in the tie-break, two or three positions from which he should've played a winner, too tentative though. What was he thinking, that some choker is on the other side of the net :confused:

But he was never gonna do well in the second set after that terrible tiebreaker in the first set. Stan gets tight way too much, he wasn't hitting the ball well on any of his set points

Rusty from Rafa but it was understandable and he should be fine against Kevin

Nadal didn't play all that well, but as usual competed amazingly. Stan, for his part, just could not put away enough balls.

Nadal's draw looking pretty damn easy through the semis.

I don't like Nadal, everyone knows that if they follow my posts.
But I have to admit that he played really good today.
He faced a very strong Wawrinka with so much power and heart.

There were moments in the 1st set (specially during the tiebreak) that there were 2 gladiators in the ring.
Great match. Rafa, I appreciatte your match.

it was a good tough match to begin for him. Some clutch play. Rafa needs to find his range - 36 unforced errors / 23 winners today and still a straight sets win. Any other player would have lost in straights.

Rafito will find his range by the time Murray comes along in the SF...dontchya worry :)

Of course I'm pissed, defensive play and moonballing should not be rewarded with a win. One of the reasons the top players are all playing defensive crappy tennis and no one has any variety is because they win anyway when their opponents choke and pushing expends less energy. Wawrinka, despite being a mental mug, has a beautiful game and that is a dying breed of tennis. Look at the result of this match to see why.

what good is a beautiful game if it cant win you matches?. Go play in the mall or in a dress window. Rafa switches between defense and offense with so much ease that most just cannot keep up. If Rafa was just pushing how did he make 36 unforced errors, 4 more than Stan? Rafa had rust in his game and he was finding his range today on hard court - first game back since winning his second wimbledon and eight grand slam title ya know? The world number one is moving on and the challengers gotta raise their level.

Stan had his chances - he wasnt good enough to take them. Not too many people are. Suck it up and go watch some other tennis match and tune Rafa's matces out. Watch the recording of Stan's yesterdays match with Dancevic. And then watch it again :)

Soderling may not have a beautiful game, but at least he doesn't choke in tight situations and doesn't bend over for clowns like Nadull. Maybe if Wawrinka had made a little fun of Nadull's ass picking like Soderling he would have been fired up instead of meekly losing the second set :mad:

If you just look at the scoreline it looks like a good win by Rafa, but in reality he didn't do anything and even gave away a bunch of terrible freebies in the tb. Hey, at least someone's playing worse than Fakervic at this tournament :wavey:

Oh if only I could tune out Nadal's matches. That would require people actually beating him when they're supposed to though so he doesn't moonball his way deep into every tournament.

Funny though, I guess Nadull can't even push right. 36 UE :lol: Enjoy those GS wins, cause this is the end of the season for him. Those "injuries" that come out every hardcourt season would have appeared had Nadull lost that first set and will appear soon enough :(

Nadal played good with variety of shots but needed a lot of effort and concentration to finish the first set. This may weaken him before US open and he needs to stay focused and not exhausted.

You are completely wrong Mr. Magician.

Nadal didn't play his best tennis but he was able mentally to rise it in the right place at the right time. Wawarinka on the other hand played his best tennis but he couldn't beat Nadal. Thats because Nadal is the no 1 player.

At this level of elite tennis where both players are determined to win the match and has the talent to make different kind of shots, the winner will be the one who is able to use the most suitable game to win. And Nadal knows he is stronger and has more control of the ball to push Wawarinka till his last breath. It consumes a lot of mental and physical abilities of the winner too and I hope Nadal will rise his game before US open but this was the right game for the night facing focused Wawarinka.

If you can't enjoy this kind of tennis matches. I don't think you are a true tennis and sport fan.

I'm a Tsonga fan, so it's obvious what my favored style of play is, but I can bring myself to appreciate players such as Nadal and Murray.

The way I see it is that defensive players are the tests to an attacking player's game. If the attacker cannot get past the defender then it's his fault for not being good enough, it means that their tennis was shit for the day and they had no business winning. Also don't try to blame it on luck, defenders always play within themselves, giving themselves tons of margin so they don't need luck in the first place, it's the attackers that have to find their luck, and run away with it.

Honestly Magician, do you even remember the 90's? Aside from a few matches it was painfully boring watching 2 primarily attacking players (especially on grass) since most of them couldn't defend for shit. It became a forgone conclusion that they would hold, unless the other guy brain farts a service game away. At least today, we know that every game is up for contention. Advantage server of course, but not as mind-numbingly dominant as it once was.

I know what you mean and people are different but what Magician says is that Nadal is a bad tennis player cause he didn't allow Wawarinka to win.

08-12-2010, 04:27 AM
Rafa pushed a bit in the tiebreak, but that is a product of him being aggressive throughout set one, and making TONS of errors. He made around 30 errors, plus mishit several other shots, missed that easy backhand volley to allow Stan to win a point in the tiebreak, not serving great, he was completely off. He tried the aggressive game, it wasn't working, so he put more margin on the ball, grinded a bit more, and it worked. Can't hate Rafa for understanding what it takes to win. Even when he dropped the all out aggression, he was still pretty aggressive with his spin in moving Stan around and keeping him pinned to the baseline.

So overall, I think the gameplan that Rafa brought to the court, his competitiveness, his movement, and his determination were positives. But now he needs to add the execution to the gameplan. And with the draw he has, he should have every opportunity to find himself. Remember people, this was his first match since June.

08-12-2010, 04:29 AM
Oh, and Stan will never beat Rafa, I don't think ever, unless he's all out amazing and playing above himself and Rafa is below par, or when they are both older and Rafa is worn down. Stan simply doesn't have the game to beat Nadal and he doesn't have the confidence against Rafa.

A really muggy first set with Nadal making a lot of strange tactical decisions and typical Stan being unable to do anything when it truly matters. I think Nadal pulled the trigger too early too many times. Of course he is rusty, but tactically he looked quite confused, almost as if he forgot how to construct a point.

the first set was the match for all intents and purposes. wawrinka staging a comeback after losing a physically demanding first set against nadal is like trying to climb mt. everest with just a bag of trail mix.

plenty of ue's from nadal as he's trying to become more of a clean, flat ball-striker on hard court instead of spin oriented. against the likes of a wawrinka however, he could have just played his usual clay court style and would have beaten him handily 6-3, 6-2. it's against the likes of a delpo or donkeydenko when he needs to flatten out and have excellent depth on every shot because those guys will eat his short topsins for breakfast. nalby has been so successful because of the consistent depth of his groundstrokes. watch his rallies and almost every ball lands within two feet of the baseline...amazing.

all this moonballing shit. Hello, Rafa does it to break up the opponent's rhythm. How many times have I seen him hit three or four in a row and follow it up with a blistering forehand. Or he'll slice a few and then pound one out crosscourt or down the line. Sure it's a way to bide his time but at least he's thinking out there on every point....even when he's ahead. The guy never takes his foot off the gas. It's called strategy and grit.

Nadal played poorly in the first set but I knew as soon as he took the tiebreak, which Stan choked away, he'd win the second handily. Stan the man may have the game to beat Rafa but not the will or the nerve to go for his shots in crunch time. He's mentally fragile like most of them out there.

gotta give Wawrinka credit, as he always tries his best, but he's too mentally weak to hang with Nadal :shrug: :lol: He always gives Nadal at least 1 tough set, but can't quite convert on the most important points. As for Nadal, we shouldn't expect him to be at his best, as this is his 1st singles match since Wimbledon...he has a good draw to improve his level though.

im surprised no one has brought this up until now.
i dont care about his butt picking but he really does need to stop touching his nose straight after picking his butt. its an absolutely filthy habit.
i dont care if he touches his ears to move his hair out of the way after the butt pick, but to touch ur nose after touching ur butt is filthy.


even his butt picking has gotten worse from a few years ago, now he does it like 2 or 3 times before each point, before it was only once.

when u do these kind of things, u dont get many sponsors(thus more money) because dirty habits from an athlete is kind of associated with that sponsor.

love his play and as a person and is my favourite player, but i really hope he can one day stop this constant butt picking, and please no more nose touching after it.

Good draw for Nadal : Anderson, then Kohlschreiber or Lu... He's already in the semis !

Stan, you useless mug :rolleyes: :zzz:


Seriously all you Rafa fans how can you enjoy this guy's style of play? On half those set points he was pushing so poorly even the american clown commentators mentioned it :o Also the time wasting on Wawrinka's serve, which is not only against the rules but extremely disrespectful, is really low in such a close set.

im a guy and i like rafa, but rafa has alot of female fans aswell, and i mean alot.
most of rafas girls like his big butt, big biceps and long hair and all that business.

i dont have a problem with it, but i wish they liked him for his tennis not his body parts.

im a 23 year old guy, so at this age ur hormones are out of control.
im sure rafa is no different, he is a human being.im sure he enjoys having all these girls love him and chase after him even though he has a girlfriend. what young guy wouldnt like that. i bet it makes xisca feel special that she is the lucky girl to have him.
xisca had tears from hapiness after rafa won wimbledon this year, she does love him for who he is.just like roger and mirka.

and as for pussies being overrated, i have to disagree with u there man, not at my age its not overrated, maybe once im in my 40's or something i might change my mind.

Blah blah blah. Would you line some cheese with that whine?


:awww::sobbing:

Oh, Rafa. I'm mourning the USO already. Aw, well. He won in the end. Hope his next match will be a little easier.

Why? This is exactly the kind of match Rafa needed to kick off his HC campaign. He hasn't played competitively in almost six weeks and the rust was obvious. He got better as the match progressed though. I'd rather he struggle it out now, work out the kinks in his game and peak in good time than breeze past opponents without getting tested only to lose at a crucial juncture.

Oh if only I could tune out Nadal's matches. That would require people actually beating him when they're supposed to though so he doesn't moonball his way deep into every tournament.

Funny though, I guess Nadull can't even push right. 36 UE :lol: Enjoy those GS wins, cause this is the end of the season for him. Those "injuries" that come out every hardcourt season would have appeared had Nadull lost that first set and will appear soon enough :(

Your bitterness is blazing right through in that post. I'm almost embarrassed for you.

Some people are so salty here. How hard is it not to watch players you don't particularly like, instead of bashing them after every match?


Far too hard for some people apparently. It's highly amusing how some claim to despise Rafa and his style of game/habits/everything about him and yet they're riveted to his matches and continue to harp on about how much they dislike him. The height of ridiculousness.

The point at 6-5 in the first set when Stan had set point was the worst point I have ever seen at this level. Nadull was tight after hitting some easy FHs in the bottom of the net(Not even Federror does that) and Stan was extremly tight because of the score.

Rafa would've lost to a mentally stronger player with that kind of play today.

And if Roger had played someone better than Chela, so could he.

If Nadal struggled against Anderson like he did today, I will enjoy it.

I think I'll re-watch a certain Wimbledon semi that a certain player won. I enjoyed it.

what good is a beautiful game if it cant win you matches?. Go play in the mall or in a dress window.

Suck it up and go watch some other tennis match and tune Rafa's matces out. Watch the recording of Stan's yesterdays match with Dancevic. And then watch it again

:lol:......:worship: to the whole post, really.

Soderling may not have a beautiful game,

Wait a minute, you're whining about the demise of the "beautiful game" when you're fan of players don't don't have that game? :rolleyes:

Maybe if Wawrinka had made a little fun of Nadull's ass picking like Soderling he would have been fired up instead of meekly losing the second set

Like in that Wimbledon match Robin didn't win? Or like this past Wimbledon, 6-1 in the last set of the match Robin didn't win?

Oh if only I could tune out Nadal's matches. That would require people actually beating him when they're supposed to though so he doesn't moonball his way deep into every tournament.

:rolls:You don't really want Rafa to phase out. All you'd do is make topics about him regardless.

It's weird how much Nadal's victories seem to salt some people's life wounds. A little creepy.

One thing is for sure -- he really triggers hatred from self-declared experts who likely have barely even played tennis.

Since it's hard court season again and his clay and grass run this year was almost undefeated I guess the knives are out on GM, and until he loses a match there's going to be all manner of lame-ass whining about draws, looks (if pussies are so overrated then bow down to the ass, man), and moonball claims from Glenn Mirnyi wannabes. None of it erases the fact that this year already belongs to Nadal.

Nadull moonballing his way into deep rounds of hard court tournaments? Wow, seems like I 've seen this before. Glad I didn't watch this horrorfest - Stan should be ashamed of himself:yawn:

Toronto is a famously high-bouncing and slower hardcourt than Cincinnati or US Open. Porky is taking full advantage, but we all knew Wawrinka wouldn't take his chances.

Taking over 2 hours to beat a joke is really sending a message to the field about his USO chances and this is the slowest hardcourt on the US Open Series.
