    It's a shame. With a bad case of mono / glandular fever, a newly born baby and being age 28, it's probably a decent bet that he won't be back.

    Nadal is bringing back pretty much everything. Can someone explain to me how Del Potro won 8 of 9 games at one point? I didn't watch that.

    What a sick shot!

    Too funny.

    I just tuned in, only to see Del Potro's leading and suddenly he starts spraying errors all over the place haha!

    Great touch from Del Po though, who knew?

    He really does move really well better than someone like Tsonga who is considered a good athlete.

    Nadal celebrated before the ball landed. Should be a code violation

    There is no doubt, Del Potro has the best forehand in business

    Nadal was leading 3-0 and had 2 BPs to make it a double break, then Delpo hit back, won 6-4 and broke for a 2-0 lead.

    I didn't care much before this match who won, but am definitely on Delpo's corner now. Rafa's constant "vamos" screams are annoying.

    okay thanks, i just don't see how that could have happened. Was Nadal making errors? Delpo hitting winners from all over the court?
