Wonder if Nadal will still play since he just won the French?  This is the first time he's entered Halle right?

Tommy won the match by ret.  He played really good, but it was obvious from the start that Tomic had some issues, he was really passive and uninterested.

At this point I don't know if he got injured, 'cause his ret. came out of nowhere....
