Nieminen was useless most of the time, woke up for a bit (winning an awesome point with a winner DTL off a smash) but eventually showed his true mug.

Nadal needs to be better for top 10 players.

Nieminen only showed up in the 2nd. He had BP at 4-4, and unfortunately he just gave up after Dull held.

Shocker!!!! Not a single thread until this one. I was looking for one.

Good match for Rafa than any of his clay matches this season. I think If he picks his game a little more against Berdych things should be back to normal.

never thought I'd see Rafa averaging 29 sec. between serves in a clay match against Nieminen

Better showing from Jarkko in the second but that was mainly due to Nadal's level dropping. Jarkko won some great points though, not that it's much of a consolation.

I didn't watch this match but I will watch tomorrow, I want to see him beat Berdych. I want revenge for Dimitrov lol. Also nice that Rafa is getting his confidence back. I really hope he keeps it up.

Nadal was better than he has been, especially at the start. Still not really convincing

Nieminen really didn't show up until down a set and a break though, and donated the last game.

Another epic after Monaco.

Nieminem tried everything, like a true warrior, but in the end Nadal was just too strong.

Rafa droped his intensity. No need to destroy an old timer. The Fin did have some good shot after 1-3 and broke Rafa. But it was never in Niemenens racket...

Remind me of almagro match,, although playing better this time.. Rafa is having mental lapses when he is 1 set and 1 break in the second mkatch up, He is having problems to close matches.
