Madrid R2: [3] Nadal def. Johnson 6-4 6-3

Safe play from Rafa. Without making things harder for himself.

Johnson tried his best, but it wasn't enough.

Steve is simply a joke of a player. How he's got to his current ranking is beyond me.
That backhand was atrocious. Nadal bullied him as if Johnson were one-handed. :facepalm:

Fognini would've beaten this Nadal 6-1 6-2 today. Too bad he faced Dimitrov instead.

He faces Bolelli next. If I recall correctly, Bolelli was the only person apart from Djokovic to break Nadal during RG 2012, so there is perhaps a glimmer of hope for Bolelli... we shall see.

Johnson is such a typical american. Sucks on clay but has a big forehand... His backhand is truly a disgrace though, it's not even futures level. You don't stand a chance against Baldito with that bh, especially not on clay.

Steve actually won more games than I thought.

Rafa did nothing special, played it safe.

Change Raquet again. Rafael is a twin. Unsure. Process....

Johnson was never going to trouble Rafa with that backhand of his.

Good solid tennis from Nadal, he did what he had to. The tests will get much tougher though...

You say that, but then I did spot that initially you put 6-4, 6-4 into the title. :p

Good win, looked strong physically, and sharper than 2015 standards

Time to focus on Bolelli

It is better to not comment this match. Johnson is good hard court player but not a clay player for sure. He has only 25 matches
on clay in his career and has lost almost all of them.

Creating a thread before the match is over is against forum rules.
