I'm just surprised that Nadal is playing mediocre tennis right now, perhaps the worst match of the tournament.

Even then Ralph is serving for the 3rd set.

Maybe some people are right about Muzza.. He's dipped massively after set 1.
gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh would you shut the freak up!! give it a bloody rest for once!

Yes but he's what 24? I honestly think he will have more shots in the future, he usually beats whom he's supposed to beat at Wimbledon, this is his 3d SF in a row there.
I think this is his chance. Rafa's as vulnerable as he's been here for a long time, he's not playing "that" well.

It's not that bad. He's playing well. 100%? No... but pretty well.

Agreed. TF3 is getting so annoying with the negativity and constantly failing predictions.

Nadal has like 6 UE's so far in nearly 3 sets... zero UE's in set 2

nadal playing mediocre ? WTF are you on about ? This is a low level of negativity ( and BS ) even by your standards !
 
Murray has earned my pity, now he has earned my contempt. Rafa needs to win now if there's any justice and hope for a good final on sunday

People shouldn't be so hard on Murray. When not injured, Nadal is almost impossible to beat at the French and Wimbledon. Murray would of had to play like he did in the first set, for the whole match, which is very tough for him to do.

Some of the people getting angry at Murray either had unrealistic expectations, or just don't want to see Nadal continue his dominance in Slams.

Nadal 2-1 sets

Nadal with 24 winners and 6 UE's in 3 sets

68% first serve... winning 84% (and 52% win % on 2nd serves)

This is Nadal playing badly? What are some of you smoking :confused:

I knew that forehand giveaway at the beginning of the 2nd set would turn things around. Murray just can't think positive.

Sure.. Nadal is playing his BEST tennis; did you even watch the Nadal-Delpo match :rolleyes:

The truth is Nadal was solid in set 2 and set 3. Sure he cut down the UFEs a little. But he didn't raise his level dramatically or anything. He's capable of playing much better on grass, usually does. See the same match last year, for ex.

Murray OTOH dipped massively. Looked like a different player from the set 1 Murray.
