Roland Garros R1:  Nadal def. Bolelli 6-2 6-2 6-1
Simone had his moments. Unfortunately, the movement isn't good enough, absolutely no consistency at all, no real gameplan or tactical ability, and of course, the man on the other side of the net is an animal. Some huge shots from Simone but he got too impatient too often and then got tired by the end. Hopefully he doesn't get too negative about this result.
Rafa was solid after a shaky start of the match and shaky moments in the middle of the second set. Very good movement and defense and some great forehands.

Don't see anything in Nadal's game today that makes me believe he will stop the Nole slam.
"And still deeper the meaning of that story of Narcissus, who because he could not grasp the tormenting, mild image he saw in the fountain, plunged into it and was drowned. But that same image, we ourselves see in all rivers and oceans. It is the image of the ungraspable phantom of life; and this is the key to it all. "- Herman Melville, Moby Dick
