Talk about taking the scenic route.

2 sets and a break up, we wind up with 4 TBs. 4 and a half hours. Nadal will be pleased.

High quality match. Rafa fans bummed. Nick can definitely beat Rafa. Karen had no chance after 2 straight 5 setters.
Almost amazing KK would win two matches he should have lost. Big relief for Nick.

Absolute epic.

The light difference in the end was Nick junkballing at 7-8, then the loopy FH DTL and ended with a BH DTL which recovered the mini-break.

At 8-8 Karen pushed slightly too much and netted the BH DTL.

Understandable, given the circumstances. He was near perfect in critical moments before.

Shame, I really would have liked KK to win here who looked better the last 2 sets and recovered peak form right during this match.

It must be mentioned that KK was hitting hard from the end of the 3rd set onwards, and hit all his shots near the lines and into the corners..

he did all this for 2+ hours, barely hitting any UE's, and returning brilliantly.

Massive props to him, NK's serve kept him afloat just enough to eek it out at the end, but he was also very competent off the ground.

should have finished in 3 really, *4-2 in the third, leading two sets to love, and head goes, wastes too much energy and especially mental power too.

Exhausted against Rafa, will still be entertaining but nah I don't fancy his chances vs Spaniard.
