I think berretini is a solid opponent. Physically elite. Bh is weak but he is the best in form opponent nadal has faced so far.
However nadals first serve has dropped.
Berretini has a big first serve and Rafa can't do anything with it. I think Berretini is pretty good and I was impressed with him in the grass season but he makes silly decisions on big points. That's an area where he has to improve and well as learn to control his aggression. But yea he can hit the cover off the ball on the serve and forehand.
 
3-3...Everything would have been so much easier if he at least got a break in this set. And he had chances to do that. Now probably too late for that.

He is real young too. I think we might have a handful of solid players in a few years.

Well, in first comment you were saying only about match against Schwartzman, nothing about injuries, so kind of wide open for guessing, no offense.

The talk about Nadal not lasting much longer begins somewhere around 2009, if not even earlier, as there was always this "Nadal will retire before 30’s because of his style" argument, which is now long past due. At this point I’m done with guessing how much time has left for him on tour, as I thought he was absolutely finished in 2015-16.

Just find a seat and enjoy the show. :)
I still remember the idiots who said he was going to have arm problems at 28 :)

Wow Ned looks terrible.

Is he injure?

Should he retire?

Why is Carlos Moya looking so upset?

Wow RAFA had 3 BPS and blew them all what is he doing?

Nadal should have skipped Montreal he's tired.

Broken back after breaking WTF Nadal?

Trainer is on the court.

That felt a lot closer than Ned winning 3-0.
