    Daniel looks very tense his shots barely finding the court.
    Rafa though playing this like its a clay court taking the ball shoulder height! great signs! there is the break :)

    Rafa looking tentative.

    Horrible start, could be injured, no?

    Did Daniel have to qualify? Or did he get entry into the main draw?

    Nadal is just looping the ball, but Daniel doesn't have the tools to do anything at all. Not to mention a weak one handed backhand. This is perfect for Nadal as a warmup..

    Daniel's footwork is not there and he cannot cope with Rafas forehand 15-40 :)

    We'll see if Daniel adjusts, but he is definitely lost now.

    Is this guy for real? Safina would have been a better opponent.

    Well, he already has his first ace. :)

    I think poor Daniel is just beset with nerves.

    double break 3-0 too early to talk of a triple bagel but it does look as though if things stay like this Daniel will need help from Rafa to win a game!

    It's been a snoozer so far. Daniel is not able to do anything at all, even though Nadal is hitting short and not flattening out his groundies.

    Daniel won 3 points in the match and all 3 were Rafa errors I think.

    I don't think Rafa will say he had to play his best tennis.

    (Some of those angles look pretty hot, though. :) )
