PHOTOS: Rafael Nadal Reaches Quarterfinals In Doha

No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal defeated Robin Haase, 6-3, 6-2, to reach the quarterfinals of the Qatar Open in Doha. He saved both break points he faced.

After the match, Rafa said:

I’m very happy to be through. It was a great match, I think I played a solid match against a difficult opponent.

Our champ will play Russian Andrey Kuznetsov, who beat Ricardas Berankis, 7-6(6), 6-1.

    Very positive to see Rafael regaining his confidence and playing so well. What appeal he has with his natural charm and ability to connect with people. He is respected and loved. Vamos Rafaaaa

    It looks like a good win. Against Haase, more winners should be possible (I remind you, Haase is really very, very mediocre), but the real test will be in the final against Djoker. If Rafa does not make it to the final, then we don’t even need a test.

    Congrats RAFA, well played.

    RAFA is an accomplished player, unlike some haters here today. It is about time, that true RAFA fans just focus on RAFA and ignore negative comments. Responding to negative comments simply gives haters more fuel for their fire.

    WE ARE HERE FOR RAFA ALWAYS.

    Unto the next match RAFA.

    RAFA fan forever.

  6. The Best news ever RAFA great for all your fans to see you in such good form and we will be hoping to see you in dazzling form again at the Australian Open a Grandslam you have won twice before, when you have been in ‘scintillating
    form for most of your brilliant career, a career that has lasted for fifteen years and where you have been so successful winning 14 Grandslams, 10 of them at Roland Garros what an amazing achievement, and I think that it’s ;possible for you to win Grandslams again although I know you won’t speciificially focus on winning more numbers is not your thing, only being consistently good and showing confidence and being happy are more important to you, always the perfect gentleman in whatever you do kind and considerate and courteous to to others and treating people with respect are your characteristics because you have been raised and taught to do so. So Rafa welcome back to the winning circle and it would be exciting and tremendously rewarding to see you win the Australian Open again defeating either Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic in the final Yes that would be SENSATIONAL. VAMOS RAFA.

      Dear Miriama Harris,

      Point of correction: Rafa has only won 14 Grand Slams, 9 of these (and not 10) came from Roland Garros.
      I wish i share your optimism, but Rafa appears not to have peaked enough yet to face Djokovic. You can imagine Rafa being stretched to 3 rounds by Pablo Busta! And yet, you’re hoping for him to beat Djokovic! Maybe Federer, but certainly not Djokovic yet.

      But, we’ll see…….

      1. Deep thinker, that’s exactly it you think too deeply…come up for air, and be a little more optimistic…..RAFA still leads Novak HtoH and also Roger, we all know Rafa had a bad year, but he’s turned it around, even Novak gets beaten too, and everyone thought he would win RG but Stan the Man took it instead, it’s time someone dethroned Novak as good as he is, even the great fall, I hope its RAFA cause no one will be expecting him too, he will be brushed off with no chance, he is finding his MOJO again and welcome back RAFA your fans still love and support you…
