It's not a good sign that Roger got broken twice in the first set.

Relax. Roger often loses the first set; he's shaking off nerves and trying to read his opponent's play. He usually has it figured out by the end of the first set and then goes on to win the next sets.

Haven't seen the match but Nadal is a future multi slam winner so his breakthrough win had to come sooner rather then later

Hopefully it was because Nadal played well rather then Roger being sick, looking at the top half of the draw Nadal could go a long way

the important thing for him is to follow this big victory with a good performance for the rest of the tournament and make at least the semis

well looking at the stats, I think it was more of Nadal's doing, or i should say his serve of all things Roger was even on winners/errors, Nadal had one or two more errors. he was serving somewhere in the 80% range, pretty impressive. and I agree WyveN, if Nadal doesn't follow up this with another win, then it'll look very weird. I'm not saying he's gotta make the semis, but to just win his next match and avoid the let down

It's a painful match to watch as a Rogi's fan, but in the meantime so great to see a young talent with such great mental strength and wonderful tennis.

WyverN, whether Rogi's is ill or not I can't tell, I only know that Rafael was dictating the play right from beginning till the end, I almost felt like I can't "smell" any sign at all that Rogi's gonna win. I have to say that Rogi's being outplayed today.

There you go for those of you who actually think that Rafael has no chance vs Rogi

just watched the match. Roger's net points won was terrible. He missed all the first 6 or 7 and some lethal unbelievable UEs from his forehand in the 2nd set which directly caused the break.

Nadal was playing great, no fear, full of confidence and also made some wonderful shots that were unexpected by Roger.

But I felt his being ill on court. I saw that he was not be able to stretch himself in full run and thus affected his shot-making. Maybe I'm biased.

Anyway all credit to Nadal.

Well Roger can't win every one of them. Maybe the court is also a lil too slow for Roger's preference?
