Watch Rafael Nadal’s Hot Shot against Marcel Granollers in Barcelona

Eight-time champion Rafael Nadal advanced to the third round at the Barcelona Open by beating Marcel Granollers 6-3, 6-2 on Wednesday.

Our champ survived a slight scare in the first set, when he took a hard fall, to put away Granollers in 91 minutes without wasting too much energy. He had 16 break points, converting four of them. He saved three break points against the 50th-ranked Granollers.

Rafa will next play Albert Montanes in the third round. The Spanish qualifier eliminated Joao Sousa of Portugal 6-1, 6-3.


  1. I am so glad my Rafa is back again doing the stuff he is known for in tennis. I don’t want to have any more goose bumps this year. You can make it to the top of the ATP Rankings and climb back to where we’ve always known you to occupy No 1. You can win against any opponent with your renewed confidence and determination. I am anxiously waiting to see you win more titles this year. I am excited being your fan! “VAMOS RAFA”

  2. what can is say simply jaw dropping stuff……… just reminded me of u of US open 2013 when u almost played same shot ……………..defense at its best………

    continue on same line rafa

    what i like most is ur attitude the whole match ………….u made ur opponent totally frustrated by ur play …….that what needs ……..demolish ur opponent ……..keep that attitude ………..the anger in ur game ……………..

    vamos vamos vamos

    remember to work on generating the high chest/shoulder bounce

    now i want to see rafa running cross court backhand/ passing shot …….
