randomly ESPN switches this match to ESPN2 which I don't have, but I guess I don't really care to watch Rafa anyway
I thought he would match well against RAFA even before they played for the first time. Tall ball basher. Expected him to score a win but he hasn't so far.Crazy how KK has matched up so well against Rafa now, I remember watching him play Rafa in Wimbledon a few years ago he was utter useless.
I don't see Fed's forehand to the deuce court/Nadal's BH to be the key. Nadal is not going to be hitting to Fed's FH. He's going to be hitting to Fed's BH, like he always does. The key for Fed is his 1st serve Pct. If he can serve the way he did against Tsitsipas in Dubai, high 70's % for much of the match, he'll have a good chance against Nadal.Fed's FH is absolutely cooking into the deuce court. That's to Nadal's BH.
Fed's plan is clear.
