Vina del Mar Final: Zeballos stuns Nadal 6-7(2), 7-6(6), 6-4
Zeballos has an amazing serve and used it effectively to get himself out of trouble, as well as bag himself a couple of love holds. He wasn't exactly vintage in the 1st set, but he definitely stated to hit the ball much cleaner in the 2nd and 3rd. Nadal seemed a little passive during many important points but Zeballos seemed unafraid the entire match. Went for the power when the opportunity arose and was content to rally with Nadal when he needed to.

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
