Unqualified observations after watching 1/2 the highlight of Dustin Brown v. Rafa Nadal:
I think even in his prime, Nadal would have fallen to Brown.
- Brown disrupted Nadal's rhythm.
- He also abused Nadal's serve.
- More 1/2 volleys hit during this match than in the entire preceding decade of ATP.
- Same for FH dropshots.
- Fearless, absolutley fearless tennis from Brown.
Not bad for a 30 y.o.
I'm no fan of Nadal, but let's not get ridiculous! Rafa was spraying the ball incomprehensively! He wasn't missing by inches; more like YARDS! You can't overlook he did win Wimbledon over Roger back in '08 after successfully defending another FO title!
