He's been out boozing to celebrate Spain's win in the Euros.
This guy looks like a young Ivan Lendl.
Shia LaBeouf Leads 2-0 in the second
That was close because of Rosol just gifted the break back you know Nadal will come back with confidence, but he holds.
Let's see how long before Nadal takes a MTO.
hmm, to me he looks like if shia lebouf and ryan gosling somehow could procreate together.
I think the top players use early rounds to practice.
Well, if the umpire isn't going to stop the match then Nadal will have to take it into his own hands and take a medical timeout soon.
nadal looks really frustrated for a guy who is just practicing.
also, his fh is still in FO mode.
that said..its the first week, the courts and beat up and slowed down just yet, esp with the rain.
yeah.They don't want to finish their first rounds matches too fast.Need a little more training...
nah,,,,rosol wont win, but its fun to watch.
5 years ago I'd never have imagined Nadal would be staying in a tight match thanks only to his serve.
Hopefully Rosol takes this set, they'll have to shut the roof at some point surely? It could get to 9pm before the 3rd set is over.
Haha yeah i get it now. Well even if he's in this mediocre form Nadal can get himself through the match with only his topspin moonballs. Personally, I feel like he should be fined for disrespecting Wimbledon by treating it like clay. He moonballs no matter where he's playing.
I had the same thought responding to a comment in the wimbledon match thread.
Nothing useful to do?
Did Rafa ever get these racquets back?
Bcoz he wasn't good enough on grass to beat Kohlie and then went fishing, ****** lost his "weeks of practice" on grass. Stop with the excuses!
Like I said,Nadal will not make it out of the first week.
she is right tho..he is def in clay mode with those loop fh sitting up and getting crushed.
did those raquets ever get restrung or what?
I wish Rafa would play like this when he plays Murray.
Nadal has nt had time to practice on grass yet... STOP THE GAME!!!
It's just an observation. He often struggles on grass in the first matches.
Grass is so peculiar and they play so few matches on it. Players who don't play RG or crash out early just have a huge advantage in the first week. It has always been like that.
Ok so another tiebreak win for Nadal or does he break and win 6-4 or 7-5?
Lol! Did he think the umpire was going to get off his chair and check it? :lol:
Rafa's forehand is making an appearance!
At this point there really is no excuse that the umpire isn't stopping the match and allowing Nadal to practice for a bit on another court.
Rafa "Monfils" Nadal?
Nadal looks like a deer on ice, I was worried he'd rolled his foot over the ball for a second!
Looks ok though
The tournament was almost over there for him.
It's too bad.
i agree he must be a *******!!!
Nadal falling over is gonna make a few avatars i think. Nadal falling over and credit to him makes no fuss about it.
he struggles the first few matches because the courts are still slick, playing quick and the bounce isnt as high. you know, like real grass...like Halle.
by the second week its playing more like clay.
Are you joking? We don't need another slam awarded to him if it wasn't for injury like wimby 2009.
Rafa needs to get to the second week when the grass is all worn away. By that point it's virtually a different tournament. He'll keep fighting.
It's really unfair that Nadal has to play when there is still some grass left on the court.
Rosol serving for the set
Let's see if he chokes or not
What do you mean "if"?
Yup, slow first serve out wide doesn't work too well, go back to the ever reliable Jeremy Clarkson style of tennis and hit with POWERRRR!
Who here wants Rafa to lose ?
Not giving a **** is a step above being mentally tough.
This guy plays like he's in his backyard.
1 set all.
That was power serving.
Some of you people in this thread are truly cretinous.
Great job from Rosol to close out the set.
1-1. A real match now. Anyway I'm watching football. Ciao.
Nadal MTO yet?
