Poor Rafa. He had to work so hard and tomorrow he will have
to work even harder only to lose.

What amazes me about Nadal, is the amount of energy he has, he just
keeps pushing everything back!

He will have to do this for five sets in the final except he can finish
it in three!

But nothing special about his strokes or game!

Tell you what partner, you try sending back a ball when you are 6ft
outside the court on an extreme angle; most players can't do it. Nadal
can do it and land the ball deep with topspin.

To understand Nadal is to understand his spin. Those who can't see it,
can't see his game. Then there is that super athleticism and genius
shot-making on the run. Absolutely breath-taking. Nadal haters are
missing so much...

Haven't seen such passing shots in a while. They have so much top and
side spin on it. By the time the ball gets to the net it's moving fast
sideways. No one on the tour is yet ready to deal with his spins. None,
including Federer. The only thing they can do is try to take time away
from him and stop him spinning the ball. But once he's out there
spinning the ball on you, there is no escape from his torture chamber
except surrender.
And it's only the hard courts right now. Wwith him in such great form
on hard courts nobody on the tour would want to think about clay.

What a match it was today. Baghy got a real taste of Nadal today. It
was him who got softened up for all their future encounters now.

As I said, if he manages via a miracle to get past Blake and the by
another win IW, well I will salute him. Untile then he is just the bumrooter
of all bumrooters.

i thought bagdaditis would play it closer than he did, but it was just
your typical nadal break-em-down match.

if nadal can beat bagdad, blake, and federer to win this, he'd be the
odds on favorite for the USO. oh wait, the USO isn't for another 5
months. nevermind.

If you grow up playing tennis 10 ft behind the baseline, then it would
be no big issue.

What I liked about Blake is that he executes his game without fear,
runs to the net to finish what he started!

that's why i said i will salute him if he wins IW. he will have earned it
unlike Dubai where he got a break and was lucky to win.

Won last 8 games - Bags was demolished - has nothing to hurt Nadal.

Looks like he woulda won AO had he turned up - he'd have even less
chance of losing in bo5.

I like James. Lovely strokes. Fast as lightning.

Plus the surface was much more conducive to the spin game than IW's is.

You have deducted Fed's 2004 US Open win from his resume, then?
(Walkover in 4th round.)

Nadal had to get clean--wash out the steroids he took in 2005.

have you seen the change in biceps?  in 2005 Nadal looks like the Incredible
Hulk.  In 2006 he has much less muscle mass.

So let me get this straight.
Grosjean softened Nadal up to be softened by Bagman to be (possibly)
softened up further by Blake?
