Well my 6-2 prediction was wrong!

What on earth is Rafa signalling about. Looks like he's playing charades.

I just managed to watch the 2nd set. It's tough for Rafa and Zeballos is playing great.
Pity I have to go to bed now, am working early tomorrow. Frown

Night, night, you'all!

Night Night.

Zeballos is putting so much spin on the ball. Murray should use this tactic against Rafa more. In Monte Carlo in 2011 Murray put so much spin on the ball and look where it got him taking a set off Rafa.

Andy can easily play the type of tennis Zeballos is playing right now. However, we have to take into account that this is Nadal's first tournament in 7 months. Zeballos simply knows this is his best chance to get Nadal and he's capitalizing it. That's how it should be. I don't think Nadal has anything to lose here. This is all about getting in shape and gaining confidence before RG.

I don't think it's so much a strategy as one player relaxing a tiny bit and the other getting fired up. Certainly happens quite often though. I think Andy broke back instantly in all of his first three matches in Melbourne, and he got broken a fair few times in those games.

Yes, I guess you could say that. The reason why I say it's a good strategy is because not often you'd see players get all fired up after getting broken. It's Andy whom I've seen it doing more often than not and that's because he's aware of the fact that his opponent might be a bit vulnerable holding his own serve. Most players tend to duel on the fact that they have just got broken and tend to digress.
