Berdych tried. He really do. But when Rafa's forehand fires like today, result can't be different. He just refused to miss today. Awesome display from that wing. :worship: :worship:

While I wasn't convinced yesterday, today no doubts - Rafa was great.

Berdych's got easy power, but tennis at this level is about difficulty and fighting through...and all that incessantly varied, banana-shaped, surface-hopping spin is a nightmare for a player who loves to generate his power baselining by hitting cleanly.

Forehand DTLs at will -- with both frequency and potency. Absolutely loving this version of Nadal.

Nadal played 100%, Berdych 70% with alot of choke.

Overtakes Federer in the Race. At 5-5* 15-40 I got pissed that a man with 9 RGs could be this insecure on clay. Apparently Nadal heard it because since that exact moment he started to play more aggressively.

Nadal found some form against a one-dimensional player with no belief. Rafa finished playing at 80-85% of peak, but healthy Nishikori will destroy him.
