Can medvedev break his 11th commandment: THOU SHALT NOT CONSOLIDATE BREAKS. a break doesn't count unless consolidated

Can anyone else see that Nadal does not like to serve within the 25 second rule?
He doesn't like to be 'rushed'.

Well, hopefully this is indicative of the match as it continues. Hopefully Med consolidates, but with the % he showed last game, I think that's likely.

As predicted Medvedev breaks. Nadal looks nervous.

As I said before, Nadal will choke and lose this one.

The first set is gone and the second is soon to follow.

Remember Med was up a break on Dimitrov a couple times iirc, and still got broken back.

And Grigor isn't half the returner Rafa is.

Rafa with several weird mishits already. Seemed like he was taking control of that 0-30 rally then poof.

Already 0-30 down... I think Nadal is just nervous at this beginning. If Medvedev hopes to have any kind of chance, he can't allow the break back here. But we all know it will eventually come...

Daniil is giving Rafa so many different looks haha, some intentional and some not.... Rafa hasn't got much timing at all so far.
 
WHAT WAS THAT MISS?????????????? OMFG, THIS IS 2015 LEVEL NADAL.

I never seen him so nervous on the court. Even against 2011 Djokovic he played with more confidence.

Rafa moonballs up a return and instead of running around for the +1 putaway, Med lets it float back to him and hit a soft backhand, engaging in a 12 shot rally.
