    LOL...hyphenated bagels are yum yum!

    Seven is my guess...maybe 7-5, 6-2.

    Carefully, Daniel is a pretty good clay court player with e decent serve. There might be some fight

    Sounds like a description of Ferrer...okay, I'll up my ante to 9 games, 7-5, 6-4.

    I can't wait to see Nadal back in action today. Djokovic should be quaking in his boots at the sight of Nadal back on clay. Looks like Nadal is going to win his 12th slam, an 8th RolandGarros title, be 59-1 at RolandGarros (assuming no walkovers, which has never happened to Nadal at RolandGarros). And Nadal will break the Borg/Sampras/federer/Nadal tie of winning 1 slam per year for 8 consecutive years, by winning a slam for the 9th consecutive year. :p

    Nadal also met Daniel Gimeno-Traver at Barcelona2011, where Nadal won 6-1 6-1. :p

    Isn't Rafa supposed to be playing now? Was his match scheduled for 6p VDM time?

    Nadal is looking really good in the warm-up. Gimeno-Traver is visibly nervous... as any player should be right now. :p

    Nadal has said he is playing with no expectations and expects to lose. But judging from Nadal's first match, he is improving very quickly (he is one of the quickest learners in the game, learning how to beat federer and show balls against him since Miami2004 and probably earlier if they had met before then). I wouldn't be surprised if Gimeno-Traver only got 2 games today, just like during Barcelona2011. :p

    Nadal scratched his pants back already and it is only the first game. It is a sign that bub is in big trouble today.

    Wow, Nadal is already looking really dominant. 4-1 in points so far, Gimeno-Traver looks helpless. :p

    Good first game. I like that he's playing faster between points too.

    Further proof that Nadal is an extremely adaptable champion (and let's not forget that Nadal won the Channel Slam TWICE in 2008 and 2010). I can't wait to see him do it again in 2013... :p

    Nadal has 0-30 in Gimeno-Traver's first service game. Not looking good for Gimeno-Traver... :p

    Nadal can make any player look bad. See federer in 18 or their 28 matches. (And 8 of their 10 slam matches.) :p

    Nadal looks like he's standing further inside the baseline than usual.

    Nadal's inside-out forehand has definitely improved since last match. Djokovic isn't going to like this Nadal... :p

    3-0 for Nadal. Can Gimeno-Traver win more than 2 games against Nadal on clay? :p

    This is more the nadal I expected so see in the first match, that said traver is still afraid to play him, no first serves in and not moving nadal much. If he keeps playing like this he will be ot in less than an hour.

    Love how Nadal runs back into the court and punishes Gimeno-Traver for TRYING to pull Nadal off-court. That's what you get. :p

    Nadal's forehand down the line is much better than in his first match at Vina del Mar, when he was missing it more often. :shock:

    Gimeno-Traver holds. :mad: Will he be able to do it again? :p

    Great point, shame Nadal couldn't win it. :mad: When Nadal improves some more, he'll be getting those balls back more often. :p
