Fognini was excellent for the most part, despite some muggy service games in the 2nd set. And he showed a great attitude. He does care when facing Nadal, it seems.

Nadal, on the other hand, confirms his new status of mental midget. And his game as a whole is not getting any better (or the progression is way too marginal to beat great players on a normal day).

Barcelona 3R: Fabio Fognini def. Rafael Nadal 6-4 7-6 (6)

Beautiful match from Rafa. Best form he's shown all year. Roland Garros well within his sights now. The King is back. VAMOS.

Nadal and his naive fans thought that weak clay era will last forever:haha::haha: Finally we see Nadal's real level against talented players like Fognini and Djokovic hitting their clay peak:lol::lol:

You gotta be fucking kidding me, out of all people, Fognini is the first one since Djokovic 2011 to take 4 consecutive sets off Nadal.

Disgusting errors from Rafa, he's making a clown like Fognini look like a badass.

Last clay season was considered Nadal's worst. 3 losses. In 2015, he's at 3 losses already and still 3 tournaments to play.

Well

Not a lot of people expected Nadal to LOSE points in Barcelona (I think he made the QFs last year right?). Incredible choking from Nadal at times from what I saw and read.

What is going on with Rafa? He played solid tennis in Monte Carlo, he wasn't back to his best but he was still solid. So many miss hits from him in this match aswell.

I swear Nadal's luck is still endless. La Decima is still approaching. :help:

At least this proves his first win wasn't a fluke.
