I was surprised how well Dodig stayed with Nadal for a couple of sets. I knew Dodig had beaten him once, but even so, it surprised me. What I think Nadal did today was outlast Dodig physically, but I don't think Nadal could do that with Andy, not now.
Nadal hasn't faced anyone yet who could really threaten over the long haul.
It fascinates me that of all the top players, it is only Andy Nadal is still yet to play since he came back. I find that intriguing. I also find it interesting when comms come out with rubbish like the only one who can beat Nadal is Djokovic. Yes, right, like at RG when Novak was too busy playing possum to bother playing? Still, it's a challenge that, one I bet Andy wouldn't shy away from.
Andy first needs to stop licking Paella Butt's ass
