    Kristof has an early break, up 2-1, even Nadal's game is very taxing on clay as well.

    3:2 Nadal on serve
    yeah they get really tight on serve - a break on clay doesn't mean much, anyway.

    5-3 Nadal, Nadal serving for the first set, his test will come next match.

    Vliegen had his chances just couldn't convert. His fh is quite impressive.

    I have to say this is a high quality match from both, esp. Vliegen is playing really well for his standards. The best match today in terms of exciting rallys and shotmaking.
    6:3 2:2 on serve

    would be a nice match, like last year for sure, but with Corias serve atm...we'll see.
    The quality of this match his droped in the last 2 games btw.

    You think so?

    THe Kiefer/Coria match is making the Nadal/Vliegen look like a Borg/McEnroe classic. *rofl*

    and against either Coria or Keifer he won't need it, anyway!
    seems like Coria is winning 5:2 he saved 4 BP or better Kiefer choked them away :rolleyes:

    We haven't seen the best Rafa yet, but he hasn't had to be the best, has he? He's winning comfortably anyway.

    No, I'm in my living room in front of The Tennis Channel. Next best thing to being there. And a lot cheaper. ;-)

    But we have some members of our site there getting all the Rafa news.

    Saw the Encore on TTC.... great job Nadal... not his greatest fan, but I can definitely appreciate great tennis (on Nadal's part anyway)
