Vamos Rafa

The first set was a practice session, he turned the GOAT mode on on second. what an amazing performance.

Kidos to Murray staying with Nadal and doing his best.

beautiful match.

Too bad for Andy. He needed this more than Rafa and played a great match. One of best Andy we have seen on clay. Shame wasn't enough.

As for Nadal, still playing shit and winning matches. I think it will stop against Dimitrov.

I really didn't want to see Rafa against Novak, it will end brutal. Hopefully he loses SF respectfully.

VAMOS YOU FUCKING LEGEND!

That was like the mental giant Nadal of old there from 2-4 down in the third. What a match! Murray totally on fire in the first and Rafa looked like a zombie, positions almost reversed in the 2nd, then a weirdly swingy third set, but great entertainment nonetheless.

Would be a-ok with Rafa going down meekly in the semi tomorrow to give Grisha a crack at his first Masters, I think these 3 epic wins have done his confidence a world of good win or lose this tournament.

Nadal found some good form and DTL shots. I don't have much hope he will win this tournament but he can represent himself well for RG.

Murray was good, Nadal aswell. Nadal's inhuman stamina won him a third match in a row. I don't know where he gets all the energy, it's unreal. Anyways, this form and his warrior's heart will win him RG yet again

Murray was utter shit from *4-2 on.

This was one of those matches where it's unbelievable how bad his serve can be for being 6'3". If he goes big it's out by two feet and if he puts a bit of margin on it he is serving like a taller version of Cipolla. Hilarious stuff.

Disappointing result but massively encouraging performance from Clayray. Maybe he isn't in as poor form as I thought.

Organisers once again scheduling Dull's match to last at 8pm to help him out. Well he needs all the help he can get to reach the finals.

I really hope he does, the roasting will be delicious.

Yep. He looked to be peaking physically in the last few games of the match

Match tomorrow should be interesting.
