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.
“There are always moments when one feels empty and estranged. Such moments are most desirable, for it means the soul has cast its moorings and is sailing for distant places. This is detachment -- when the old is over and the new has not yet come. If you are afraid, the state may be distressing, but there is really nothing to be afraid of. Remember the instruction: Whatever you come across -- go beyond.”
