Rafa played a nobody at 15000% to get the lucky win. Shameless!

On the other hand:
Quentin Halys is really good. Some holds were impressive(He is just 18 and Ranked 296). Some of his FH and dropshots winners were really good. BH might need some time to tune. A good match for a WC. Overall a great prospect. :yeah:

Rafa was good on and off. Some FH DTL and Inside out FH winners were very good. But still not convincing. He should have dished out a bagel or breadstick in the first :facepalm:. A good test to start the RG, nonetheless. 67th win at RG. :worship:

Let's see if 2015dal can play 2 good matches in a row. Good luck champ. :)

French Open R1: (6) Nadal def. (WC) Halys 6-3 6-3 6-4

Considering the circumstances, I thought Halys gave quite an account of himself. He should be very proud of the way he played against a legend.

Question is -
Did or Did Halys NOT choke?

really good performance by halys. he acquitted himself very well here. I love his game ,really displayed some great stuff

Halys served well and was attempting a lot of things after his serve.

Nadal played ok fora first match, never was in any danger. He hit some nice forehands cross courts. Still some errors on the BH side but decent match.

Nadal definitely looks beatable here. He wasn't in any real danger here (mostly because of the inexperience of his opponent), but Halys was still able to keep it relatively close and make it somewhat competitive. Any other player wouldn't have been as generous.

On the beginning Halys was bad. Really bad. Maybe nerves, different reality, that kind of stuff. Much better in next two sets. Definitely worthy WC for this Boy Doubles champ from last year, serve and forehand combo really nice. :yeah: :yeah:

Rafa was pulling the trigger from his forehand when he had a chance, which is good thing to see. Hope that trend continues in next matches, or even will look better. Consistency is everything.

Halys played well. Especially on serve. Odss are high that he would have taken at least a set from Federer.
