Nadal time between points (After score is announced by chair umpire to when Nadal begins service motion) also i don't do the timer between when Nadal misses the first serve and prepares his second serve sadly.

0-15 - 29 seconds
15-15 - 22 seconds
15-30 - 23 seconds
30-30 - 30 seconds
40-30 - 19 seconds

This is not a hate post, this is simply the facts. No warning yet that im aware of?

Nadal still able to hold his nerve. Great S&V in that penultimate point.

He has to hope that Med's level drops, some looks at some 2nd serves would help.

Rafa serving at 42% and Medvedev at 100% yet Rafa is still on serving.

Doesn't bode well for Daniil chances in this match, at one point his % will have to drop drastically.

that was an ok volley. not too easy, not too tough. commentators blowing it up. :rolleyes:
It wasn't a great volley. Maybe not even good. But it didn't need to be. Medvedev stands so far back to return serve. Even if you volley within the service line - you will win the point.

I don't know how Nadal still didn't get broken. He looks hopeless so far.

@Hitman As you see, I was right about Nadal's serve. It looked good when he faced bad returners. Medvedev isn't troubled at all by his serve.

Choking and ues? You guys saw another match than I did. Thiem was blasting the cover off the ball today, with such slim margins and his intensity and quickness were incredible.
Thiem played really well overall. Didn’t play the big points as well, but still really convincing overall.

I agree though, I don’t see Thiem losing this tournament

Not even close to Fed, sorry. Fed has the broader shoulders and looks better in his on-court kits. The Rafa kit in Paris and here isn't one of his best.

We'll have to agree to disagree. It's a matter of taste after all. I think Nadal looks great at RG and here.
That was an especially good look for Federer.
I feel Nadal is more consistent with how good he looks.

That was one of the best matches I've ever seen him play and I don't say that lightly. What a turn around from him on hardocurt earlier in his career. Often he was blasting 102 mph forehands and 95 mph backhands.
