    Nadal is looking formidable.
    Less* backing around his backhand,stepping up the court and hitting a flatter ball,probably to save wear and tear on his knees.
    Seems to be working!
    *Fewer?!

    Nadal to play Joker it looks like.
    Tsitsi had moments in the second set but missed an open court with a forehand at 4 all,15 all and that was that. He has had a brilliant tournament and his time will surely come.
    ND cruising so far against Pouille with Amelie unable to help.
    Already murmurings resurfacing as to Rafa's authenticity.They don't stay away for long.

    Tsitsi is a bit too weedy. Probably all that cucumber.

    Weedy?*
    WEEDY?*
    He's lean. Although he could do with a little more muscle.I expect they're waiting for him to stop growing before he puts it on.
    * Said like Dr Johnson in 'Blackadder III'.

    I returned home,unaware of the Kvitova v Oasaka result.
    I put on Eurosport at 7-6.5-3 0-40 PK serving. She then won the set.
    Excellent I thought,I have time to watch and have my lunch before raising my home made FA Cup for the football.
    Im an add break I turned to BBC1 to see if Stanley v FLDFC was on.
    It was Osaka giving her victory speech!
    It rhymes with 'clucking bell'!

    Been a Novak fan since he was 20. I have faith.

    Faultless first set from ND,can he maintain this level?

    ND flawless in three.
    Rafa,whether nervous or struggling with his knees,reverted to his clay court mind set. two metres behind the baseline,not hitting through his grounds and Novak clambering all over his shots and dictating the points.
    Very impressive from ND.

    Well that must have been one of the quickest finals between the top guys ever!

    I expect so.
    Sometimes it helps to have had a difficult match. Nadal couldn't find his game when he most needed it.
