So close to that Fed/Nalby match and yet so far.

Did u watch the highlights, SdG?

Nalby is, I think, the only player that exposes the difference (in Rafa's disfavour) in talent between Rafa and the other great players of those times. The way the Argentine is able to outmaneuver Rafa and to make him run from corner to corner makes the Spaniard look quite disoriented at times. Not even Nole at his best is able to to that.

In the end Rafa prevails because he is a warrior of incredible mental strehgth and because his huge topspin messes with all his opponents heads, but those flashes and bits of humiliation that Nalby makes Nadal go through are just priceless for a painful Federer fan.

That being said, I think Rafa has great chances for a final but, still, I don't know if the Djoker will let the mental edge go in Rafa's favour by losing on Sunday. Great 2 days for tennis, probably not so great for a Roger's fan, but one cannot stop hoping, right, 0-7?

he's just being a little inconsistent and that's making the difference......he never used to miss with his off forehands and the backhand.....one could define consistency in word saying nadal.....these days he is misfiring a lot and that's reflected by that 39 ue stat......

The game to lose serve in the second set was pure genius. Drop shot error in the middle of the net. Shite putaway volley that Rafito got to and passed him with. Forehand error at deuce and double fault on BP. Dave

Ajde.

Nadal seems to be serving weaker than usual this tournament. He's obviously going to have to go for more against Nole if that match happens. On the flip side he seems to be more willing to step in and take some cracks at the backhand down the line, which is something he almost never did last year and that could be a good development for his game. Also Nadal hit some incredible volleys that seemed lucky, but the fact that he did it multiple times suggests otherwise. I guess the doubles paid off.

Nalbandian played well but I think he was still a bit off his best and played it safe a little more than he needed to with his ground strokes at times. There were a lot of situations where he could have unloaded and taken control of the point but he held back. To me that says a lot about the kind of threat he can still be to Nadal if he keeps regaining his form and confidence.
