Rafa's gonna Rafa

All i wanted to see from Nick after that 3rd set was to keep his head and fight it out.
He did exactly that so hats off.

Is this the best it gets though ?
He's too stubborn for his own good , he even said " i can't get through him " - well there's more than one way to win a point mate.

Do you think it's old school tennis for a returner to stand 5-6 metres behind the baseline to return serve? Most courts that would not even be possible.
Nadal got lucky he didn't have to grind on the outside courts more because he won the FO at 19.

Nick has the firepower but besides his serve didnt seem to use his explosive forehand much the last two matches.

Also if he got the last match done in three would've he had a better choice.

He did well to make a game of it given his last match and the length of these sets as well. If he finished off Karen a bit earlier he might have been good for a win here
