It won't matter. Cold and rainy hurts Nadal against Djoker, but even in the cold and rain, Ferrer or Tsonga won't hurt him.

Rafa is the FIRST to qualify for WTF this year! :D

Great, great, great point from Nadal! Not at all tentative about it being break point!

.....I'll leave you guys to it.
The quality of this highly touted megasemifinal isn't anywhere near it's billing.
Time to print some Benjamins. :big boss:
You mean to say you are not enjoying the match?   :rofl_2:

Nice play by ND - I hope he can break back.

Good man! He obliges!  3-3 in the 2nd set.

Good hold by ND.  4-3.

I get the sense that he is relaxing and getting into some sort of stride. Needless to say, he'll need it - RN looks formiddable out there thus far.

Well that was a superb game by ND to just remain eagle eyed & take his chances with flair.  He breaks to go up 5-3 & serving for the set.
