Nadal shouldn't complain about the surface. He is the biggest favorite to the title anyway, and he will kiss it if he wins the whole thing.

Nadal looking dangerous. Serve clicking, adapted to the court well. That said, Davy had nothing to show from his side and so need to wait for a couple of rounds to confirm.

Nadal played well and Davy is off form, NID result. Nadal moved okay despite complaining about the surface. Davy seemed to have more issues with it.

Everko

The crowd was shit though. Nadal needed more of a test than Baldenko who fell away after some idiot whistled during his point at the start of the 2nd set. Damn it, someone needs to push him. He needs to be pushed to get back into decent form.

nadal is looking very dangerous....

after godo and montecarlo , he looks very good!!

he has his great defense like always but he is playing much more agressive , his backhand are better and his serve is very similar to the us open 2010 serve.

if nadal continues playing like this , i see rafa dominating this year.

nole made a big mistake challenge rafa in montecarlo and gifted confidence again

Rafa is only relevant for the clay season...once that passes he will lose again as always

70-68
05-09-2012, 03:04 PM
Nadal's serve had been clicking since Monte Carlo (except a few matches, like the Barcelona final vs. Ferrer), and this slippery surface will probably favor it even more.

Expected result anyways, but h2h is still 6-5 for Kolya :D

Clay Death
05-09-2012, 03:06 PM

affirmative. general. he was not really faced with any sort of a challenge today.

i am not happy with the backhand and also the return off that wing.

overall he did show some signs of progress with his backhand.

also did you forget about his 2 hard court slams and 2 grass court slams?

I don`t thin so.

if rafa keeps this agressive tennis and his serve .

he has serious chances in wimbledon and us open!!!

nole is veryy irregular now , he is not returning well , playing very deffensive and not solid from the baseline.

nole need to recover his agressive tennis ( recover his powerful backhand again and open angles again ) and returning if he wants defeat nadal again

Nadal playing like he's at Wimbledon - big serves, aggressive - 6 aces in 8 service games on clay is a lot for him! Funniest part - Spanish commies confirming Nadal asked Nike to put grass soles on his shoes rather than clay. :haha: Don't know if he ended up wearing those.

At least he changed his game plan knowing what the surface was like - expect Novak to be more aggressive tomorrow too. Only way to play this 'clay' tournament.

The tournament wouldn't allow him to do it citing the damage it would do to the "clay" as Robbie and Jason commented

Only if he wins RG without dropping a set like in 2008 and 2010. If he loses a set(s) at RG then he won't win Wimbledon. Nadal is the most predictable player ever.

Rafito press

"The court is not one that makes you feel comfortable,"
"The court is a difficult court, it's very slippery and it makes supporting movements and getting back to defend very tough.
"But the only thing we can do now is turn the page and we are not going to get the red courts back tomorrow so we have to adapt to the blue courts and the conditions as well as possible and hope for a change next year.

The blue might be eye catching and better for seeing the ball, but who cares when the players are clearly struggling with their movement on it? Ugly tennis.

What does it being blue have anything to do with the composition of the clay? The problem clearly isn't with the color of the clay.

But I could have sworn that Nadal reached the final of the first Slam of the year.

That's not the point. The point is, who cares if the court looks better on tv when the tennis itself is hideous? Whatever the cause, the courts are even worse this year than last year, and sorting that out is more important than changing the color for viewers.

Also, I might add that the problem may actually be with the color of the clay, no one seems to have an answer. Koenig offered an interesting theory during the match.
