How fat was that. Hour and half of good effort ruined by volley - drop shot - DF combo . Once a BBM always a BBM . Third set BP drop shot was also priceless. better stick to the burgers Dave. Gifted win 500+ for rafito

Default Indian Wells QF: Nadal def. Nalbandian 4-6 7-5 6-4

The mental strength from Nadal triumphed in this. Dumb game Nalbandian played at *5-5 to get broken, easy volley not put away, the missed dropshot. Once that happened, momentum changed and Nadal was able to get it done.

Nalbandian trying a dropshot when he had 2 break points at 5-4 in the 3rd.

Nadal definitely can't complain about lack of crowd support in Indian Wells.

Default Indian Wells QF: Nadal def. Nalbandian 4-6 7-5 6-4

The last half of the match was painful.

This lacking-in-confidence Rafa is not gonna do anything vs Nole should they play in the final. And really, Federer and Isner, if he beats Djokovic, should look at this match and take a lot of belief in beating Nadal.

Too bad for David, was the significantly better player the first two sets. Just couldn't cross the finish line. Rafa just started putting more balls in the court, really. Which was all that was required.

Default IW QF: Nadal outchoked by Nalbandian 4-6, 7-5, 6-4

NID

The match seemed over as soon as Nalby makes the DF at 5-5 30-40 in 2nd set. But it wasn't.

Nadal was very bad today, specially in the 1st, but credit to Dave that gave everything he had, but in the end show again why he is slamless and a mental midget... He returned very deep the Nadal serves. Nadal in the end try to show some HUGE signs of chokeness, but in the end, he was still the best of the 2.

VAMOS RAFA!

Strong fight. Lots of great rallies. Level fluctuated, but that's to be expected given the healthy break Rafa took for a well-paced season.

Good test for Rafa. Expect his form to get better in more favorable match-ups like with Federer. But if he meets Nole in the final this match may give him additional confidence.

Hope David just builds and builds from this.

3 billion threads, wow. Lots of tight play from both, but I can't say it wasn't entertaining.
