Yeah, it was an improvement but I can only pray he'll be able to beat Nole. Nole looks mighty good still, and you know these mental issues... But I keep praying so hopefully it'll be a good season for Rafa.
At least his mood seems OK.
Rafa up 2nd again on Center today vs Gremelmayr. Vamos!

"I'm very happy about my level," stated Nadal. "I think I played a very good first set. The only moment that I didn't play well was the beginning of the second and after the tie-break. For the rest [of the match], I think I played solid."

After winning the first set, Nadal fell behind 1-4 before winning three straight games to even the second set. The two battled their way into a tie-break, and it was Kohlschreiber who grabbed an early mini-break, closing the 'breaker out with ease to send the match to a deciding third set.

Kohlschreiber broke to begin the final set, but was unable to maintain his advantage, dropping serve in the ensuing game. Nadal converted a second break to move ahead 3-1, and finished off the match with a routine service game to take the hard-fought meeting in two hours and 33 minutes. "He can play at a very high level," Nadal said. "He has fantastic shots. His serve worked very well for him in moments today, [as well as] his return. Sometimes I felt that I was serving okay, and sometimes his return was very fast. So it was difficult."

6-2 6-2 vs Gremelmayr, not bad, not bad. Very windy conditions. Let's hope Rafa will keep improving till the AO and all the injury worries are behind us. He actually needed the rest during the offseason after the Davis Cup.

Yeah well hopefully the Colonel is not the same he was in 2006.
SF vs Monfils would be tricky though. This Clownfils seems to be in pretty good shape still.

Quote:
"Today the conditions were difficult, but I think I played another solid match, doing a few things really well," assessed Nadal. "I hit good returns, aggressive ones, and good backhands. I think I played a complete match."

Playing with a slightly heavier racquet, Nadal won 33 of his 40 service points and saved the only break point he faced. The 2010 runner-up (l. to Davydenko) converted four of 15 break point opportunities for victory in 90 minutes. "I think I'm returning better, especially [compared to] the last part of the 2011 season," Nadal said. "So that's important, because the beginning of the points a lot of times are the key.

"I'm happy about how my return has worked the two days here and how a few things have worked well with the new weight of the racquet. I'm starting to have good feelings."
And yes he smiled again after the match. There's still work to be done but Rafa if anyone can do it. Vamos!
Mugs like Kohli & Gremelmayr are hardly any comparison though. Let's see IF he can reach the likes of evil Nole or even Murray at the AO again.

6-4 6-4 vs Youzhny. Was 4-1 two breaks up in the 2nd set when he let Youzhny break back. And almost f***ed it up serving for the match too.

Very good stuff from Rafa today, the mental walkabout at the end aside. Forehand was looking much better than the previous rounds and BH was still looking good. A trophy this week would be great for his confidence I'm sure, particularly as it will have to come against Fed/Tsonga.

Yeah well he wanted to kill me at the end with his 'mental walkabout'.
So not sure about the trophy but we can hope. Semis vs Clownfils 2nd on Center tomorrow. Vamos Rafa!

Rafa has played very well so far in Doha. Backhand has improved, return of serve has improved. However, his First serve is nowhere near his USOpen'10/Australian Open'09/Wimbledon'08 levels and his Second serve needs work too.

VAMOS!
