R.Nadal def Sybille Bammer 7-6(6) 1-0 ret.
The match was lag-normal but there was some big spikes of lag (pretty like wind) and it made us miss a lot of shots, especially in some important moments..
I expected a though match, and it was, he was defending very well and attacking good too, i played a bad game and he took my serve. He held his serve till 5-4, where he had to serve for the set. He had 1 or 2 set points, 40-30 and Adv-40, that i saved and i managed to debreak.. Then in the tiebreak there was plenty of mini breaks, he had one more set point but i finally won the tie break 8-6.
He did win 3 more points than me in this first set.
In the 2nd i took his serve in the begining, and then he told me that he retires, from the match and from TE.. because he has no more motivation to play the game, but i think he'll explain it himself later.
Anyway, enjoy the time you won't waste while playing TE
R.Nadal def Tati Cornet 7-6(3) 6-1 7-6(1)
I expected a though match here too because after playing much with him for training i know he's really good.
I started the match really bad.. As always i must admit.. I gave him my serve 2 times because of bad service perfomance and some stupid choices, and him playing nicely.
I took back one serve immediately, the other one after much opportunities, later at 4-3 or so.
In the tie break he was quite unlucky with some missed shots while he was on the way of the ball. And i played it perfectly too.
In the 2nd i was quite dominating him from the baseline, he was doing much faults so whether i was waiting for his fault whether i was attacking with good result.
In this set he came 6 times to the net (with 50% net pt won) instead of the 30 times(67% won) of the first set, and it was easier for me to win his service games.
In the 3rd i had the break, but he changed strategy and it was more difficult for me, i lost the break. It went to a tiebreak, and then he had been quite unlucky too, and me playing good so after 6-0, i concluded at 6-1.
I enjoyed the match, and wish you GL for next tournies..
