  1. Just praying that if Djokovic does win his matches that he has to fight for them so that he will be tired when he comes up against Rafa as he was in Rome. Want so much for Nadal to win his 12th trophy but more than that his 18th Grand Slam.

    • No problem there. Rafa will not need any favors in a potential match against Djokovic.

      We need Djoker at full strength, and Rafa at full strength will beat Djokovic every time in a RG final.

      In 2015, yea Rafa had some screws loose in his head when he lost to Djoker. Rafa has since fixed that problem. Won’t happen again.

  2. If I was to be given a chance to coach Nadal or give him tips, I believe I can help him improve his game by 17%. There is at least 3 skills I have never seen him employ but which is used could hibe him a major boost

    • Please share with us those skills you think Rafa should employ, Kajafax69. What about the underarm serve as a tactic?

      • The first one is the ability to delay hitting a volley when he gets a lob from his opponent. I have noticed Nadal just commits and volleys regardless where his opponent is repositioned. He needs to train himself to hit the ball at last minute just to allow the opponent to commit like Rohwr and Djokovic and selected others so.

        Secondly, I think Nadal at his level of tennis has the capacity to train and learn how to hit drop shots that bounce perpendicular like Roger hits them. Nadal has the advantage already from the heavy spins he puts on his shots.

  4. I haven’t seen the first set as Eurosport’s replay started with the second, but it seems Rafa was very good in it – he even said so himself in the presser – that’s a rarity! David had been playing a good tournament, so it’s not too surprising that he won a set, but Rafa definitely deserved the other 3. Very happy to see Rafa through to the next round – vamos!!
