Hey, I'm not the one who came up with Tomás tweeting Rafa about a shower. I was just responding to the brilliant idea!

From live commentary:

His opponent isn't a weaponless nobody, and Berdych took advantage of a less intense Nadal. Maybe Nadal will play for pride in this last set, and maybe he always intended to let it go to a third if he won the first so he wouldn't beat himself up unnecessarily over three. Who knows? There are many possibilities, and they're all thanks to this damned round robin format. Get rid of it and you also get rid of inexplicable matches like this one.
Also, people who take a result like this as evidence that tanking doesn't happen at this level are very simplistic. It's as if a player is either fully committed to winning a match or they're tanking it, and since true tanks are very rare they'll never allow that a player might have done relatively poorly because they simply didn't bring their A-game for the whole match. This was absolutely a case of a player only showing up for certain periods of the match.

Anyway, was a good match from Nadal in the sets that seemed to matter to him. Berdych always seems to make Nadal look good, so I honestly don't know what to read from his performance going forward. And yes, there was some shitting of pants by Berdych at the end of the match.

Rafa tanked the last two sets.

Nobody in Group A was a match for him.

Good rest while Plexicushionovic will most likely have to play Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

2nd set he play some quality shotmaking, only to return to puppet mod in the 3rd and choke in the ending of course.

Hopefully Delpo/Fed to end this nonsense joke next Sunday.
Nah. The Spaniard will raise the trophy.

This match proves beyond a doubt Berdych will never beat Nadal again. Nadal literally tanked the last 2 sets in that he gave about 30% effort level to conserve energy or the weekend. Berdych still couldn't win 2 sets in a row to win the match over tanking giving no effort Nadal.

Stan just tweeted this too. https://twitter.com/stanwawrinka/sta...36831414521856

Too good this Rafa - killing all his opponents with love. Wished Berdy luck in the Davis Cup too.

First set Birdy made one big mistake - crapped his pants serving the first game - Nadal made him pay. Settled after that and became Isner lite. Birdy played a superb second set with Nadal making stupid errors on his service game throughout. Both players played the third set very well. Nadal decided to return second serves close to the baseline and Birdy imploded with 2DF's. Pretty much the match. People bashing Berdych for no reason - the guy played better than Stan did against Nadal. Too bad he slept on Wawrinka in his first match. A shame really.

This. He couldn't even accept an obvious tank how bad of a player is he? Ugh. He's got so much talent. I just don't understand why he's such a mug
