As an european and a fan of clay tennis I always love this part of the season. I was watching Nadal vs Gasquet and it was so refreshing. Rallys were very good, point construction was great and very smart. Both players played with inspiration and the speed of the court allowed them to deliver a true tactical battle with a point only being finished at the second bounce. This is the return of clever tennis. Nadal played so much better than in any of his HC match this year.
