Adequate from Nadal. Not an overwhelmingly great match from Rafa, but Nieminen simply does not have the ingredients to beat him and Rafa moved well and looked healthy. Some entertaining rallies, and Jarkko tried his hardest as he always does.

Nieminen was really really bad with random patches of brilliance as he frequently is. The pathetic-brilliant ratio was pretty bad though

Nadal playing at about 50%, Nieminen playing very well aside from the final DF.

7 games is a good showing.

No, Nieminen was good. Nadal quite avarage for his standard.

Pretty much everything I expected.

Really if Almagro plays well and doesn't choke he could push Nadal in the QF.

Poor quality but he would get it done eventually. Sharkko might be weaponless, but he likes trying his hardest when he wants to.

Jarkko played okish but he doesn't have the firepower to beat Nadal.

Nadal looked mediocre, quite a few errors from him which is surprising on clay.

Nieminen was really challenging Nadal's forehand and winning alot of fh to fh duels, Nieminen was just more offensive minded with his forehands than Nadal and taking the initiative. Nieminen's backhand is just not very good, that is the problem.

kneedal was playing on one knee as the result shows. nadal at 100% would've won 6-0 6-0, that's obvious.

Also nadal is undefeated when healthy so djokovic was lucky kneedal was injured for the past year and a half.
