Nadal v Burgsmuller, Coria v Carlsen: the 2nd and 3rd triple bagels in the history of RG.

Burg is probably the worst player in the top 100

If Coria plays left handed and serves underarm against Carlsen he loses 5 games and if Nadal does vice versa he'll lose 4.

You've just insulted Linsard

*Edit: I guess I was mistaken to think he was still in the top 100...

You know this would be hilarious, if Lars was:
a) not a nice guy
b) the kind who didn't train very much at all

Rafa shouldn't lose any point if he plays at his 100% but I don't think Rafa will be that motivated vs Burgsmüller. So I'll say: between 1 and 3 ;)

I voted for 1 before I remembered that this is a Slam and therefore Rafa would need to bagel twice for this to happen.. I think anywhere from 3-5 is likely.

*knocks on wood*

I don't want to jinx the kid though.

No way a triple bagel. Lars will take 5-7 games.

I think he wouldn't play against Richard if he lost.

Look how well Lars is doing against Nadal today :D
And you didn't have trust in him :ras: ;)
He made more games and is after the 2nd set already longer on the court than most would have expected :yeah:

Nadal really had to work for this 2nd set a lot harder than expected and hence he had to celebrate this won set with a really big VAMOS and fistpump against a #100 ranked player who came into this match with a 1-5 record on clay this season ;)

A good match, Herr Burgsmüller! :worship:
(if you only played like that against most other opponents.... :cool: )

Burgsmuller always plays well in Paris. The result doesn't surprise me at all.

still a surprise for me
people who are claycourt specialists and who are ranked top 10 lost to Nadal in a blowout under 60 minutes
Burgsmüller comes into this match with almost nothing, ranked around 100 and takes Nadal to a tiebreak

In German we would say: "Er hat sich für seinen Wert sehr gut verkauft" ... and since he can't win the match, that was the only thing what counted for him and he can go out of this match with his head up.

Lars came to net as often possible and that's what got him into a tiebreak. I think Stepanek's first set against Nadal in Rome, where he came to net a lot and mixed it up, maybe showed some players in the locker room that to stand a chance against Nadal if you are lower ranked, just risk it and come to net and go for it. Standing at the back of the court and slugging with Nadal would have got Lars even less games. It was a good match to watch because of the contrast in net player v baseliner and Nadal was impressive.

exactly my thoughts
he did what he could do to go in a tie break against nadal on clay.. really didn't expact that :)

Well done, Rafael! :D

I think Rafa had a few nerves in this match, but he worked it out.

Exactly, Raquel. This match also reminded me a lot of what Stepanek tried against Nadal in Rome. None of them could successfully follow that strategy for a longer time, but yes, it was definitely better for Lars coming to the net as often as possible than waiting at the baseline until Nadal pushes him from left to right with his heavy strokes to prepare his points.

nice assessment. Lars ended up having a better scoreline than anyone predicted. ;)
