Boring courts, boring match, boring sport.

Thankfully (turns into Brentos for a minute) I have 900 satellite channels, 100 radio stations and other forums I can do instead of watch dross like this on a regular basis.

IW always takes Nadal's shots incredibly well. Slow yet still very responsive to topspin, so his shots explode upwards and forwards.

Always difficult to judge a player's form when playing against a journeyman, but Nadal looked in fine form to me. Very fine form.
As his game is tailor-made for these courts (and his stats/results in the past six years or so clearly indicate this), he's my favourite to win this tournament.

Yes you may laugh at me when I turn out to be wrong. ;)

Well, he's right, you never know. I had my doubts after that loss to Djokovic, how he would react.

But what I saw from him after that, I knew that he knew he was going to do just fine. He has always played well here, lost a couple matches he should've never lost, otherwise he'd be going for his fourth or fifth title here.

last few years till he was sinking i wasn't able to watch Mayer playing so I almost forgot how useless and annoying piece of shit he is. Guys like him should be banned from tennis, if for anything those volleys are enough strong reason . Good to see Ellison's face hasn't changed the expression from last year though

Unbeievable performance today, Rafa! Vamos Spartan Warrior! :bowdown:

You've now only got four more practice matches until you INITIATE War with Nole 2.0. You MUST continue to improve so you can finally get this Issue Fixed, Resolved, Validated and Closed.

Oh yeah, and Message to Frauderer: If you plan on making it to court this coming Saturday, don't forget to bring some Egg Salad for your personal baptism as Rafa's Turkey. For once I'm actually hoping you make it through your Cupcake draw and don't Chicken out, and come ready to play in the Semis. I'm already basting a fresh Turkey for next Saturday and I'm calling him "Muger" in honor of the HUMILIATION Rafa is going to inflict upon you given your recent classless and arrogant remarks.

Something tells me your Ego may override your common sense, Muger, and you might actually show up thinking you have a chance to win. :lol: I just can't wait.... :)

:lol:

Didn't see the match, but from the comments here and from the stats, I like what I am seeing.

Indian Wells is always good for his game, and it was great that he took off the entire month after AO. No Rotterdam, no Davis Cup, no Dubai, well played. Well rested and ready to go all out from Indian Wells to US Open.

It is, however, only the opening round, and anything can happen, but I would rather he blow people away than have to struggle against guys like Devvarman like he did last year.

When i saw Mayer i thought he revenged that shamefull loss from Shanghai, but this is not that Mayer:D
I don´t know how anyone can jugde his form from this match, we will see how he will progress further in tournament, but no wonder that he will be doing fine here, IW courts always were great for him - i think IW are best possible HC for Nadal, slow but high bounce, that means he has both 2 major things here - slow means his deffense can be too much for anyone - guys like Federer will turn into error mode against him on such courts and high bounce - topspin effective, can dictate points.

Well.. after a dramatic loss in AO final and 5-6 weeks off - no 'rustyness' detected. That's not an indicator of a great form but at least a good sign, lets leave it on that

I believe I have good reason. Every court's slower than ass. It's boring and it's impossible to play attacking tennis and win. I complain when it's justified.

As I said in another thread, since Canas knocked off Fed in 07, IW and Miami have been nothing but shit quality errorfests on courts with sticky-as-shit bounces.

Monte Carlo hurry up.

You just need to read this thread to understand why nadal tards are the dumbest from all tards. He was playing a guy who is brainless, useless, ballbashing and head case combo, against this type of player all top players playing just to get the job done but our rafito usually pumps yourself like is playing life depending match . Enough for his tards to gloat the Goat performance . Vamos


PS Good top see rafito improving return skills, the deepest one was on service line :yeah:
