But RAFA did call the trainer and he gave him some kind of pudding to eat..... what was that about ????????????? if RAFA is injured ,, is this Rain a blessing ? will it give him enough time to get 100 % again ??????According to Corretja in spanish Eurosport, putting extra tape in his forearms is something Nadal does in very damp conditions. Rather than injury, it's a sign of discomfort.
I don't know about the other Nadal fans, but for sure there are five or so posters here who make up 90% of the injury poast trafficRafa wins a match 6-3, 6-1, 6-2 and looks unstoppable. Nadal fans: "Rafa looks fully fit and will win this. No one can stop him!"
Then, in the next match, it goes this way:
Nadal wins the 1st set 6-1. Nadal fans: "Rafa is in the zone, this will be a straight set win with two bagels".
Nadal loses the 2nd set 5-7: Nadal fans: "Rafa must be injured"/"It's the knee again"/"He has a blister".
RNadal wins the 3rd set 6-3: Nadal fans: "Rafa looks fit again. This will end in four. A bagel is coming".
Nadal loses the 4th set 6-7: Nadal fans: "Poor Rafa! His knee hurts him again".
Nadal loses the 5th set 5-7: Nadal fans: "Poor Rafa! He was injured from the get go!".
Yay, another Murray fanI’m not cool with Nadal winning unless DelHotro and Andy Murray are already out of the tournament. And I still don’t know IF I want Rafa to win this match because DelHotro is still in the tournament.
I have played a sport in real life and I most definitely disagree. As would a lot of people who have played. It's a matter of opinions.Only someone that has never played a real sport in their life would disagree. It's a stupid as believing that your level doesn't fluctuate day-to-day. Or if you play great one day and not the next it's because you're mentally weak or unprepared. The logic just doesn't hold up.
Toni? Isn't Moya Nadal's coach. And coaches can tell players all they want, they don't have to go out there and execute it, the players do.But Rafa was the one needing to change and he wasn’t. Why would Schwartzman need someone to tell him what to do? Nadal was heading for a straight setting if he doesn’t get told how to play. Disappointing in that sense I think. But that’s what happens when you’re used to being told what to do by Toni.
I take your point but the rain delay has affected Schwartzmans chances, that’s undeniable.
No ****, Sherlock! I couldn't have figured out this myself.Rafa won 3 games in a row, so the 2 became a 5
Thanks for the info.Nadal found his range and started standing up to the line, hitting deeper and taking control.
Diego hit a couple of good winners but couldn't deal with the extra pressure on serve. Also struggled a bit to find his timing after the break and wasn't able to hit quite as well in the heavier conditions.
Find me 1 Rafa fan who actually honestly believes Rafa never lost a high profile match when healthy. *******s smh...Rafa wins a match 6-3, 6-1, 6-2 and looks unstoppable. Nadal fans: "Rafa looks fully fit and will win this. No one can stop him!"

Nadal loses the 4th set 6-7. Nadal fans: Poor Rafa! His knee hurts him again.
Nadal loses the 5th set 5-7. Nadal fans: Poor Rafa! He was injured from the get go!.
Would be pretty easy to do. You'd just have to say "Fed devotee" a bunch of times and we'd figure it out.

but it was weird in that first set... Clearly I could see RAFA's shots were falling short with much less RPM and weight than usual in the 1st set....... but then at the end of that 2nd set,, Rafa's shots looked heavy with depth again and could see the crazy movement that he normally gets. Diego couldn't rip it anymore from middle of 2nd set on.I read somewhere that he told the tournament director it wasn't anything serious. Didn't look injured, just played a bit poor and Diego GOATed for some parts
