Wow, he took the set. Med is so clutch though. He didn't really do much wrong in this game, though he could hit the volley better.

Nadal somehow wins the first set but it doesn't mean much. He needs to hold in the second set...

They both started really tentative, but by the end they were both really playing pretty well. I can't believe how much they were both at net! That's like 2, maybe 3 sets worth for these guys.:-D had to be done with each guys returning position, I guess.
 
This Giles Simon clone is gonna have to play much better to even trouble Nadal and was lucky the set was even that close. I predicted Nadal in 4 but he's gonna want to get it done in straights for sure.

Medvedev is playing so much better than in his previous matches here...Suddenly a very high % of first serves, and he serves them very well. I don't see Nadal winning a tie break against him, no way. Med will take this on the tie break and then finish Nadal in the next two sets.
Nadal’s balls are different. Plus Nadal varies his groundies a lot more with those slices, high topspin to the bh, flat to meds fh, Quick to the net etc.

RAFA only serving 47% but winning 65% of 2nd serve points! Making Jack Kramer proud! "You're only as good as your 2nd serve."
Sir Andy punching the air right meow!

They're not used to playing an opponent who stands as far back as they do.
