Are you getting those stats from Wimbledon site? If so I wouldn't trust them that much, Nadal definitely made more UFE from what I've seen.
Very true. There's no way Federer made 9 or 11 unforced errors in 5 sets of a match he lost. Impossible. I'm guessing unforced error at Wimbledon is when you don't have to move at all to get to the ball, or when you move forward after a very weak reply.

Nadal serving LESS than 60%, Murray close to 70%. Usually the stats are reverse.

Nadal made tons of UFEs in set 1, both from backhand and forehand. Mostly on clutch points.

He continues in the same vein in set 2.

Had "this" Nadal played against Delpo, he would have lost in straights..
Give some credit to Murray, I like Delpo's game more but Andy is a much more proven grasscourter.

Had the real delpo won, he wouldn't have lost.

yeah Becker was remarking on the number he was making too, no way Rafa only made 4, unless it's a very generous set of criteria. He missed a lot of makeable "Rafa"-type shots.

It's safe to say this is a must win set for Nadal. If he doesn't even it up here, he's not going to win 3 straight sets.

I don't even have to watch the stream whenever there's a roar from the crowd you know Murray just won a point

If Rafa was playing at even 1% of his normal level, this match would be over right now.

I think it's pretty obvious that Murray had no personal role in winning that first set.

They say W has been kind to winners/UFEs count. I don't hold any weight on that stats.

Murray is playing with great authority from the ground and being more offensive than I thought he would be. You should give him some credit. I know Nadal's not playing his best, though.

He's looking for his game. If he had played like this versus Juan Martin he would be fishing by now.
Exactly.

When Nadal is trying S-V because he cannot dominate off ground, it means trouble.

He hasn't played with ANY authority whatsoever from the back. The forehand lacks bit, backhand is off and footwork is slow..

The guy who played against Delpo was like a totally different player..

Murray has to put that miss out of his mind. It's the kind of thing that's derailed his whole game in the past.
 
What's your issue. Trying to have a serious discussion. He didn't hit enough 1st serves when it mattered. That's grass court tennis...
No issue, just get sick of these ****s claiming Nadal is not playing his best and he never loses if he plays his best. That's completely false.
