Wait. Zverev is playing Rafa and in the meantime Berrettini is playing Garin...?
...Oh sorry! I forgot Garin eliminated the Tsar of Clay! :-D

Baffles me that this guy hasn't won even a Masters event for two and a half years. Well, two years taking the covid break into consideration. The guy has the most spectacular self destructions and he's got strong competition in that.

Djokovic was right in 2007 when he said Rafa is beatable on clay. :unsure:

Was Rafa sucking in his previous matches here? This is first match I am watching of the whole tournament.
Rafa has been playing the same way here as in Barcelona. Only in Montecarlo he was noticeably worse. This is more about Zverev playing well than Nadal having a bad day, although of course, Nadal has declined heavily in general.

Yes, Zverev that titanic slam giant who had mentally recovered after the insane choke in NYC...
It doesn't matter. Against Nadal he always brings his absolute best, no matter how he does against others. A week ago he lost to Ivashka. Tomorrow Thiem will beat him like 6-0 6-1. But against Nadal he will ALWAYS show up.

Zverev was completely mediocre in set 1, good but not great in set 2.
