Sloppy match from Rafa but a win is a win.

Rafa's movement was not very good today, his serve - even worse. I am hoping that those improve as the week progresses. His forehand was average but he hit some nice winners DTL. The backhand is loopy and not very consistent.

Well, I will be lying if I said I was expecting Rafa to be on fire But he will get better and hopefully win the tournament!

Vamos!

The most anticipated matches of the Rio Open presented by Claro hdtv first round ended like the fans expected: with wins from Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer. The world number one defeated his fellow countryman Daniel Gimeno-Traver 6/3 7/5, while the number 4 in the ATP rankings breezed past Jeremy Chardy 6/2 6/3.

In a crowded Center Court, Nadal showed why he is the most feared opponent on clay. In his 800th career match, the Spaniard reached his 18th clay court win in a row - he is undefeated since he lost to Novak Djokovic in the Masters 1000 of Monte Carlo last year. Although Nadal had saved two early break points, he managed to break Gimeno-Traver’s serve twice in the first set and once in the second set to book his place in the second round.

“I have to raise my level match by match. It was really important to win after spending a week without practice. Gimeno-Traver was more used to the conditions than me since he played the recent clay tournaments. I played better than practiced, that is something positive”, said Nadal, who faces Albert Montañes next.


The Spaniard also said the back injury he suffered during the Australian Open final wasn't an issue in his first official match in three weeks. “I have worked to heal my injury since Australia. In the first match it is natural to fear a little, you don’t want to have the same problem again. But everything was fine. I hope my back keeps getting better every day.”

Rafa's next match, against Albert Montañes , will be played on Thursday.

Put the guy on ignore and you don't have to see his whining reps. Not worth paying attention to, mimi. I mean, you don't have to be blind to other opinions but that's just ridiculous with a person who only tries to wind you up so ignoring him is the best option.

thanks for the advice, but i have changed my mind. I am a vicious woman, i sent his rep to the mods coz i guess it is against the rules to accuse someone of doping? He had already sent me 3 bad reps in this month on post that i did nothing offensive

"I'm happy to be back in competition," said Nadal. "I had to face a player that's been playing for several weeks on clay courts. I have to improve some details, but I played better than I practised and that's positive.

"Latin America is very special for me, I feel like home. The people are great to me and it's a pleasure to be back in Brazil. I hope I can come more often."


Nadal is the sixth active player to have played at least 800 singles matches on the ATP World Tour, along with Roger Federer, Tommy Haas, Lleyton Hewitt, David Ferrer and Nikolay Davydenko.

The tournament gave him a t-shirt.




Rafa will play vs Albert Montanes not before 7 pm local time.
