Nadal now extends his personal record to 17 years of winning at least a single title (2004-2020) (y)(y)
It's not just his personal record. It's an ATP Open Era record. (y)

And that's why I always defend him on that. It works. He should never stop until he's forced too. Unfortunately there are only 2 guys on the whole tour that are capable of actually making him move in with their serves.
And those 2 guys are the guys who are the most important. That tactic drops off steeply vs top opponents.

Anyway, Nadal playing very well, but due to opposition a somewhat unremarkable win. Just hope this means we'll get fire at IW.

Fair enough, but of all the gourd shapes they've certainly done their best to make it look like a generic pear
Certainly agree with you there. :p I'm too lazy to go searching for it but awhile ago the organizers themselves did confirm to some media outfit that it's a gourd, probably as far back as the last time Rafa won because that would be the last time I would have been interested enough in the trophy to read about it somewhere. :laughing:

Wikipedia says: "The winner traditionally receives a giant silver pear trophy."

It does feel a bit underwhelming, but let’s face it: no one is touching Nadal when he’s 100% apart from Djokovic, Thiem and maybe hot Kyrgios.
I saw the highlights and looks like Nadal's fearhand is back! Also he was serving great. I think he is a lock for FO unless Djoker reaches 2011 form, will be tough for anyone to take him out.
