Proving once again why Paire will never get to the upper echelon.

RodSmooth 04-25-2013 02:16 PM

Monfils Could've dusted them both 0,0

7/6 nadal first set, not too bad pizza man

veroniquem 04-26-2013 01:51 AM

Not too good from Rafa but good enough!

tipsa...don'tlikehim! 04-26-2013 01:55 AM

paire still fighting in the second, actually he's good when he feels no pressure, nevertheless i have to agree, rafa does not look too good, i worry about his french open

veroniquem 04-26-2013 01:58 AM

He has several weeks to get ready for the French. I'll start worrying about the French if he doesn't do well in Rome.

break nadal ...

Maybe Nadal is declining as Paire would never get this many games against Nadal of three years on this surface.

veroniquem 04-26-2013 02:01 AM

Well done Rafa. Swift and smooth now please. You have another match later...

Nobody cares about games. The only thing that matters is to win in straights most of the time and even that I'm not sure. Djoko was losing sets left and right in M-C and he still won the tournament.

Rafa is playing like he is half asleep. This is bad.

veroniquem 04-26-2013 02:08 AM

Relax. He's leading 4-2 and he's probably gonna break for 5-2. Half asleep Rafa will still own a guy like Paire. :)
Annnd right on cue, Rafa will serve for the match at 5-2!

Paire is gifting points left, right and centre at this point. Rafa doesn't have to do much.

veroniquem 04-26-2013 02:13 AM

Routine win for Rafa. His next opponent only just finished the first set (it looks like it will be Ramos). Everything peachy.

That's what I'm saying, Rafa could probably beat Paire IN his sleep :)

classic scenario, good resistance from the frenchman in the first, owned in the second
next!

Rafa really isn't at it at the moment is he. I rewatched the Monte Carlo open final at the weekend and am surprised he pushed Novankle as hard as he did with so many unforced errors (35 I recall) and with his topspin just not biting. Unless Rafa gets his act together pretty sharpish and the sun comes out on the clay season, Novak is going to go into RG the favourite in my book.
