I read that Nadal knew about Nalbandian's bad hip and was sympathetic, so perhaps it is genuine.

Also, some ATP statistician has revealed that Nadal's ball has twice the spin and twice the speed of any other ATP player.  I'd like to see that close up rather than on television.

Twice the speed? Hmm.

Been watching the Nando/Gonzo match at the gym, the power of these two would blow down the Eiffel Tower, incredible.  shocking

Twice the speed is ******** - he would be hitting forehands at 240 km/h if that was the case.

Watching it too.  I really like Gonzalez.  He looks like a cheeky wee monkey and as if he'd be a lot of fun.  Oh, and he can play tennis too!  yes

Nadal's ball has nothing like twice the speed. He consistently hits fewer winners than his opponents. Murray even hit more winners in one set against him in Monte Carlo than Nadal managed in two sets. Murray also doubled Nadal's winners at the US Open 08 and the Australian Open 07. He hits with far too much spin for it to penetrate through the court like the ball of flatter hitters.

It's amazing how these things go round and round ...... it was said by one of the female SKY commentators.  Perhaps she was just talking about the spin - could that be it?

It must be. If Sam Smith said that it's twice as fast as anyone else's, she's off her head.

I think I have been very sloppy in my post with regard to what Sam Smith said ...... she was talking about the number of revolutions in the spin being twice as many as any other ATP tennis player ......... she then went on to attempt to amplify by saying something along the lines of "and this makes it twice as fast".  Maybe she thought that made the whole situation clearer - I understood what she said at the time she said it - however I can see some murraysworlders are knee deep in confusion.

The Barcelona cameraman really loves Nadal - every time Nadal is serving the camera shot glides up from his shoes to his face!

What a warrior Ferrer is ... I was really expecting to see Gonzo today.  It is 2-2 in the second set here.
