    GREAT TENNIS RAFA vs Zeballos. Just one more match after this one until you win your 10th Barcelona title.

    The original Olympians are with you, as am I.

    RAFA ROCKS

    Zeballos plays mainly on the challenger circuit; clay being his favorite surface. In 2013, he beat Rafa in the Viña del Mar final. He played a losing 2017 AO five hour and fifteen minute match against Ivo Karlovic.

    Zeballos may have the stamina to keep up with Rafa, but does he have the shots to win the match.

    RAFA ROCKS

        Thanks for filling in the gap.

        Yes, it was Rafa’s first tournament after his many months out due to injury. And it is the only title Zeballos has won.

        As Ricky [Grandstand] said, “This is obviously a much different Nadal, ….so a swift end to his [Zeballos’] stellar week will likely be in store.”

    1. I think so long as Rafa does not suffer an injury during his match with Zebellos he should be fine. His level of play at the moment is not only very high but he is playing with confidence and as we all know, a confident Rafa is very hard to overcome.
      Athough he faltered for the first few games against Chung he kept his calm and found a way to get back on track for a straight sets win. But congratulations to Chung who showed he has what it takes to be a top player one day.
