99%, I'd say.

Please, can somebody please change the title of the thread? It's not San Pablo. It's São Paulo. Thanks.

and what about when he made 5 aces when led 0-40 after the crowd had booed him between first and second serve ?

he was running out of gas, he went for it, it happens

overall he was hugely admirable imo.

you can't only blame the courts but it's hard to compare them with the usual Nadal's beloved clay.

Almagro made 28 aces today

booing between the first and second serve is something I had only seen in Davis cup.

Berlocq was troubled when it first happened then reacted and made 5 aces but it could have cost him the break.

Overall I have the impression that Nadal has been quicker since he came back, does he still pick his ass by the way ? I think he has given up this one
Wasn't a regular thing, but the 3 or 4 times he did he took 30+ seconds, usually on a big point

Nadal was awful.

Berlocq played well for patches, but has the mental strength of a turd. I especially liked that he opened that last games with 2 straight double faults.

Embarrassing match. And Nadal vamosing and fistpumping like a retard though he didn't do a thing... NID.

Poor Charly, double-faulting in crucial moments in the third. He should have won, Rafa only played half-decent starting from the middle of the second set.
I have no explanation for Rafa's crappy return of serve - I counted at least 8 times when he netted slow second serves by Berlocq. Rafa's serve is non-existent - serving constantly at 170 - 180 kmh will not get the job done. His shots lack depth, it seems to me he is afraid to swing freely, especially on the forehand side.
The good thing from the match is that the fire is not gone, it is still there and Rafa is as competitive as ever. Hopefully he gets his confidence back ASAP and he will be looking much, much better on the court!

they keep on speaking of "Fedtards" being everywhere and I still don't know who they are.

Some just say that they are not "Fedfans", that's why we shouldn't feel targetted for some reason (even though the "revenge" is always to attack Federer), that's all I know.

I could only name 3 guys : Honestly-Samanosuke-Habibko, Feldman is probably also considered in that group although he's above all a clown.
