Rafa loses the first set again. Will win in 4. Kukushkin will not be able to sustain this level.

This happens every Nadal match now. Wish I'd placed a bet on him to lose the first set. Nadal will still win.

Damn, there is a problem with my cable. Transmission getting disrupted on the most crucial points. Missed the SP conversion.

Nadal is such a clown. Losing the first set again & again :mad:
WTH is his problem?!
It's Indoors today. It'll be much tougher than the first 2 rounds to comeback.

Just lame! Too much clowning.

Everytime these no-name players play Nadal, they just go for broke and sometimes everything works. It's unbelievable.

What boggles my mind is Kukushkin beat him with actual point construction, something Nadal is supposed to be the best at in the world. He doesnt have a huge serve, he doesnt hit crazy winners like Rosol and he doesnt serve and volley. The majority of the match has been played from the baseline. Amazing stuff!

The next set I think will be close maybe anoither tie-breaker of 7-5. If Nadal wins it he will steamroll the next 2 sets. Genuinely never gave Kukushkin a chance is this match, I thought this was Nadal having a pass to the semi's. Proven wrong

Kukushkin played great in this first set.

Nadal is definitely more vulnerable on grass and even more when the roof is closed.

Still I think Nadal should win this match (I voted Nadal in 4 yesterday so lets make it!)

I will just add that although Nadal isn't playing his best in this tournament, all 3 of his opponents started fantastically
