VIDEO: Rafael Nadal absolutely nails this passing shot against Alexander Zverev

Watch Hot Shot as Rafael Nadal nails a scorching passing shot past Alexander Zverev at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters.


  1. I don’t want to sound negative but Rafa’s playing really lousy. In matches like this each time he breaks serve I often see him to nervous and consquently gets broken right back WAY too often. Not liking this at all!

  2. VAMOS SWEETHEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) : ) : ) Great 1st set with lots of solid moves and a lead of 6 : 4 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) : ) Love watching you tigerring away with purpose and drive with Sharp sweet ACES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) : ) : ) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) : ) VAMOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) : ) VAMOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) VAMOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) ………….”Lets go Rafa lets go”…….

  3. Quite a lousy set from Rafa to be honest :(.

    Rafa doesn’t like night matches like these at all.

  4. Wow. Somehow Rafa got the set, but really Diego was hitting harder and deeper and more consistently, and it was Rafa scraping through.

    But…. Rafa has won many a match with just that approach.

    I have to abandon match, in faith Rafa will win, but worried about how he will deal with Goff if Diego is giving him this much trouble.

    It’s cold now and that may be contributing.

    Anyway, fun watching with y’all, see you tomorrow ….

  5. If short-man wasn’t playing Rafa right now , i would probably be rooting for him.Yes first set Rafa , you know what your up against now, give yourself a talking to and get out there and show him who the boss is

  6. This can’t be happening. Maybe we shouldn’t have shown so much glee in the demise of the other top seeds.Hopefuly it won’t come back and bite us on the bum.

  7. Jeeezuz Rafa broken again. Diego has def found some new level in his game … Rafa should still win and if he can’t beat Diego he certainly can’t handle Goff.

    Az was a deceiving match bcz Az was so off his game. Hard to tell how much was Rafa or AZ just being lousy.

  8. VAMOS DEAR RAFA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) : ) : ) ******************* GO RAFA GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) : ) : ) : ) : ) Looking so solid & feisty out there leading 4:1 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : )

  9. Short-man , certainly packs a punch , a real little pocket rocket but no match for Rafa .

  10. I predict a straightforward win for the Spaniard.

    Diego hits the ball well, but this kind of tennis is ideal for Rafa.

    Match of the tournament so far! Previously it was also Goffin vs Thiem to me. πŸ™‚ I got exhausted watching it. Goffin really delivered! From the start of the tournament from I what I saw it seemed he’s on a mission, so much heart, so much fight.

    In the final game I was thinking if Novak came through this, unless he got drained, it would be a disadvantage for Rafa as β€œthe king of saving MPs” might ver well have been waken up.

    Goffin played really solid in the third match. At 5-5 in the decider on his serve, I was worried as the sun seemed to be troubling him a lot. So glad he got through that. He played bravely and deservingly won. Congratulations!

    Now back to our champion vs Nishioka aka Ninja of the clay court.

    Good luck and Vamos Rafa. πŸ€πŸ€πŸŽΎπŸŽΎπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

  12. Wow Diego looks even shorter than Goff, though thicker.

    Rafa must feel more relaxed knowing the outcome of the match prior.
