OK Rafa, let's break now and get the title.
That slice winner he hit just then was unbelievable.
I didn't expect this guy to stay with Nadal, the way he has, even with Rafa having so much time off.
That was vintage Nadal
that shot was ridic
His movement still looks painful at times...
Poor return from Rafa there.
Zeb holding on by the skin of his teeth.
Grr ace. Zeb still playing well.
This guy is giving Rafa the workout he needs. Hope he winds it up soon though
What a BH!
Lol @ those saying this guy has talent.
He's a clay scrub who is getting whooped by an injured Nadal who doesn't look like he's giving 5% effort.
This guy reminds me so much of Gaudio.
Did Nadal just serve and volley on clay?
He does that occasionally, at RG too.
proves how little of a fvck Nadal gives about this, just using it as an opportunity to practice obscure tactics he'd never use outside of practice.
That "clay scrub" just won the doubles for Argentina in Copa Davis with Nalbandian against a German team containing Mayer and Kohlschreiber (whom Rafa-haters love b/c he gives him such a hard time at Wimbledon).
You might want to check your facts next time before frothing off at the mouth.
2003 Hamburg - Gaudio d. Nadal (6-2, 6-2)
2004 Bastad - Gaudio d. Nadal (6-2, 6-3)
2005 Buenos Aires - Gaudio d. Nadal (0-6, 6-0, 6-1)
pretty obvious who is best of all time
Rafa is not really making too many dents in the return games it seems.
Wow another TB. This guy is really testing the clay god
This has been more competitive than I expected but this guy is going to give it away now.
He's giving Rafa a good workout out there today.
Zeballos going for it.
Not pushing at all, hitting winners
Take a cold shower.
This guy has some fight, at least.
I'm nervous about how bad Djokovic would have beaten Rafa today.
Wouldn't have been gluten-free.
Er, isn't that exactly what I said?
Why? That makes no sense. Since Nadal has just returned back, and their first likely meeting won't be until MC, by which time Rafa would have found his clay feet.
Ignore him. He is biggest dbag on this forum.
You'll never see that happen. Nadal tends to play some matches before Roland Garros, and in this case it looks like he will play 6 or 7 events before it lol.
I was just getting a weird feeling with the whole god talk, coming from you. You did mention it before, no?
Sorry for the offense.
Can this guy actually take the tie break?
Dude, he can't be good enough to beat Djokovic after 3 matches in 8 months. He has time to get there and it looks like this guy is testing him. I'm stunned. But he actually needs a test like this
Now will this guy blow the TB or can he take it to 3? hmm.. I would usually say Nadal in 2 still
What guts from Rafa!
Amazing fight from Nadal.
Zeballos is clearly rattled. Did you guys see how awkward that last backhand looked?
What a ballsy drop shot!
"He is the Mt Everest...of mountain climbing...in tennis."
well that was predictable... but a return winner gives this dude a set point again
Wow, I was wrong. Zeballos just hit a Gasquet like return.
Wowzy cliffhanger TB. Just what Rafa needs to sharpen his confidence!
He deserved that set!
Zeballos wins the second set.
Gaudio was a Nadal beater so his his student, Zeballos!
Gutsy performance by Zeb!
Oh my goodness, he's taken the set!
On to set 3. Nadal does not even look worried.
its a dogfight now
Nadal will cook some bakery for this mug next set.
Breadstick or bagel - Zeb's choice.
