this match is golden so far  :rofl_2: :rofl_2:

That hit by Nadal at Novak + reactions! I totally can see gifs coming  :rofl_2:

Djokovic is really not happy with it.

I know, but I can afford to have a nice laugh. I'm fan of neither  :rofl_2:

Turribl!

Only 2 1/2 hours. Don't you feel cheated? I hope you DVR'd the match so you have something to do for the next 2 1/2 hours.

GREAT MATCH! Wonderful hitting from both guys. Nole was a little lackadaisical in the beginning of the first set and in the tiebreak, but overall, amazing points. Rafa is looking primed and ready to prove his doubters wrong at the USO this year! Lethal aggression, serving amazingly well circa 2010 with multiple 120+ mph serves, hugging the baseline and attacking the serve, great net hands and approaches.

I doubt there'll be much to see tomorrow. Rafa looked lethal tonight, while Raonic looked mostly terrible with only the serve saving him. And Rafa showed that he's not afraid of big serving against Janowicz.

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

Btw Rafa has proved me wrong 101 times now. How many times have you stuck a fork in him only to watch him win...on hardcourts no less!

Yup! Now undefeated on hard courts so far. And tonight he took out the best current hard court player. Where's Herc? Gotta gloat to him some now!  :innocent:

I don't agree about serving.
Jerzy Janowicz serving is not as good as Raonic. Jerzy has too much double faults and has extremely low 1st serve in %. Raonic is way better than Jerzy in this department.   

Plus, Raonic's serve has much better placement.

That is true. Jerzy isn't nearly as consistent. But he's still got the big serves, and Rafa wasn't scared. Still hugged the baseline and stuck a lot of them in. Raonic will no doubt get more aces and service winners than Jerzy did, but I don't think it'll be impossible for Rafa to break him.

Nadal was brilliant. Can't believe he was that aggressive. That really came as a positive surprise for me.
Novak was short and passive too many times only to have that terrible TB in Haas style vs Nadal.

Again, this is a watchable Nadal, hope he can play like this so I don't have to avoid his matches.

On a side note... Raonic doesn't stand a chance, if Nadal plays like this.

I saw most of it before  :ZZZZZ) . It was a great match but I was very tired.
Take heart, Alex. Nadal never plays well at Cincy.

blah, just saw the first set, then I had a family emergency. Didn't even record the match, forgot, I had to run. congrats to Rafa and his fans.

I don't think Milos will be able to do anything against Nadal I don't really care for Raonic after that 'net incident' vs. Del Potro. Raonic is too slow for Rafa. Unless he serves out of his mind and Rafa drops his level he is doomed.

I couldn't care less who wins the championship altough I lost pretty much all respect for Nadal long time ago for many different reasons. 
 I think that Djokovic is losing his mental edge. I couldn't believe how many DF he made at some key points from what I was reading on the net.

I still feel so bad that Vasek lost to Raonic  :\. Vasek is a such nice guy. Much better variety in his game than Raonic.

Don't worry, Alex. Djokovic played much, much better in the second set and didn't double fault at all in that set, and through most of the third set. He's doing just fine. In this case, Nadal was just better and more consistent. A lot of the points where Djokovic upped his level of play and got more aggressive that usually trouble Rafa so much, last night Rafa was ready to take them and be aggressive in return.

I'm back in circulation!!!!! :grind dance:  I was in a small town in Texas this weekend....in the woods...with NO CELL PHONE RECEPTION WHATSOEVER!!!!!! :mad1:  I'm back home now.  I can catch up with the action that I missed.

Good win for Rafa over Novak.  And good opportunity for Raonic.  However, I see Nadal beating him in straight sets.  The only thing Raonic have in his corner will be the fans.  I can't see him breaking Nadal any time soon.

You should have enjoyed it even more because of it  :))

There's only a handful places where you can stay and simply enjoy quietness.

I wonder how stars look like in the middle of the woods there.
