Like it or not, it just ain't the same without Nole...

Notice how Nishi & Fognini are safely away from Nadal...who's going to stop him?

Tomic is gutless.

Fognini is actually only three matches away from Nadal...that would be fun!

...unless Stan the divorced man regathers emotionally and turn the new leaf...he can be so good on clay.

Stan always had trouble with the mental side of the game. Family issues, divorce etc. just can't get him to focus on tennis atm. I'll be surprized if he even reached the QF in Madrid.

Cause if you think about it, he beat nadal just once out of the many times they played...it was not on clay......Stan had a fantastic day with nothing to lose then while Nadal had everything to lose and certainly panicked.....probably his first sign of panick that AO14 final.

I can see Fed losing to Kyrgios tomorrow. Fed probably wants a rest.

Fognini-Dimi should be a good one, too!

Also,
Kei-Goffin
&
Murray-Kholi


Question of the Day:

Can Johnson do it?


He's got a booming serve and reasonable movement, (similar to but not as good as Sock), good start/breakthrough season so far...
I just don't know if he can translate his game to clay

Less likely, maybe 5% change of this happening. Nadal on clay is not going to be troubled by big servers.

Problem for Johnson is taste Nadal's spin for the first time....and on clay. So very unlikely. Though on clay a big serve is actually quite a weapon.

Estoril champ vs Istanbul champ in the 2nd round and I believe it's Kyrgios first ever time playing in Madrid, I think this will be the tastiest shotmaking match of the tournament.

Ah yea, but we all know Gasquet had that "coke" thing a few years ago from a club so that's good enough to strip him of Estoril  Devil

Ok so Nadal can breathe and be calm now that his owner Fognini has left the picture. Berdych keeps his form going for another day, dejavu.

To me this Johnson is easily as good as a Soderling. More or less same power but much more agile and versatile.

The plan from Sod was always to lose easily and look like an amateur in that match then show his true skills for the RG meeting Winking

It is weird how Nadal played a match with no deuces on his serve or return

Unfortunately, I couldn't see much of the match, had to do my French homework. Run

But the little I saw I noticed Nadal was moving really well, and that's the key for his game.

All looks the same as last year more or less...he'll end up playing drained Nole and win by the skin of his teeth helped by a set of weird circumstances...Wah

Kyrgios plays the same as Rosol: swinging from the hips, hoping for the best!

Well at least they both managed to beat Nadal in Wimbledon like that Winking
