Nadal is trying to go for TOO MUCH on his first serves. That is why his serve percentage is low. He knows if he doesn't have a good serve he will LIKELY lose the point as Med is dominating the neutral rallies.
But he still hasn't lost serve with so low first serve %?

Nadal is over 25 seconds on average, but it's ok.
Did they show a stat showing that? Coz that confirms what i've been saying. He's had at least 5 times it go to around about 30seconds and no warning and not even a quick heads up from the umpire to speed it up. I saw one of the statistics they showed that Med was averaging about 1:50 per service hold and Nadal was something like 6+ mins.

Watch Nadal take this set now, even though Med has been vastly the better player. It won't matter when Med's mental strength is a POS.

Medvedev is getting jittery and missing serves. This is why I picked Nadal in 3. He is in Medvedev's head and he should have broken a long time ago and instead he is going down a break to a Nadal serving under 40%.

That's why I was sure Nadal wouldn't lose to Med. Served perfectly and now played a sh*t game with little first serves.

People overrate this guy too much.

Almost 40 seconds on Meddy's BP a couple of games ago, when he had 3.

Instead of warnings, he steals the set.

Oh yeah Nadal not playing well at all, Medy is playing his best. Too many trolls who don't understand tennis are here.

Suddenly Medvedev plays a very bad game with no first serves at all. Surprise break from Nadal. Will he serve it out though? Given his mentality I doubt it. He is losing all big points recently.

Can Nadal HOLD? In the past vs Thiem and even vs Titspas - Nadal got BROKEN immediately after breaking,

Moment of truth for Nadal. Can he hold?

Nadal just out manoevuring Medvedev and putting pressure on him to hit errors. He's beginning to neutralise Medvedev's strengths and that is ominous now for the Russian's chances.
