Nadal is now 53-1 at this tournament that he has won seven times, but Brands did get the satisfaction of seeing genuine relief in Nadal’s face as they shook hands at the net after Nadal’s 4-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-4, 6-3 victory.

Nadal refused to compare Brands performance to his loss to Lukas Rosolin June last year at Wimbledon. “I think it was a different situation. Rosol played the fifth set unbelievably I think. I would never have won that fifth set the way he played.”

Suma 53 victorias en el torneo a cinco del récord de Guillermo Vilas y Nicola Pietrangeli. Sólo Federer, con 55, tiene más entre los tenistas en activo. Está a seis partidos de ser el único tenista capaz de ganar ocho veces un mismo ‘Grand Slam’
