    Off the bat, the good ol' receipe: abuse the weak backhand, draw short ball and go for the kill.

    Nadal is playing very well but he is very venerable....Djokovic is in amazing form but luckily he got the easiest draw...with Tsitsipas out and no Thiem, no Wawrinka, no Medvedev.....just may be Federer in the Semi Finals

  5. JOHN Q

    JOHN QPřed 23 dny

    If he wins this slam going through the probable of Kyrgios, Thiem,Medvedev and Roger or Novak while reaching 20 slams this will only excel his Goat status conversation.

    I'm afraid his match with Kyrgios will tire him if it goes 5 sets, but he gets a full days rest right? But he seems great so far, Nadal is known for grueling rallys

    6+ minutes of highlights, and if there was a single for Carreno Busta, I must have blinked. Yet the score claims he won 7 games.

  16. Edison DeOliveira

    Edison DeOliveiraPřed 24 dny

    Interesting I get better coverage from espn on youtube than on its site which I pay to watch but only has marginal matches available. Even the "highlights" which is more like a bag of leftovers shows more bs talk than the actual play which ones expects to see on such format.

  24. Cesar Pahl

    Cesar PahlPřed 24 dny

    Extremely slow courts, any doubts Nadal is favourite ? Australian open cashing in big from sponsors extending the matches for extra 30-60 minutes, very clever from them but it will kill the serve, approach and volley sort of tennis. Nadal did play well though, amazing to watch.

  25. DJQuan718

    DJQuan718Před 24 dny

    Dang this interview felt longer than the actual finals interviews 😂. That was a lot of questions but forget that Rafa played outstanding. The conditions were great and he smacked some down the line winners. Hopefully he can stay consistent

  29. Κώστας Αργύρης

    Κώστας ΑργύρηςPřed 24 dny

    It's hella funny seeing comments like "Nadal in pink is unbeatable". You know who did beat him in pink? Nick in Acapulco. Can he do it again? Doubtful. But even a 50% Kyrgios has a much better shot than a 100% Khachanov.



    If Rafa gets past Kyrgios which he should, he may face Monfils and Wawrinka instead of Thiem and Medvedev. Both Monfils and Wawrinka are seasoned players with enough experience and ammunition required in GS to beat the younger but higher ranked opponents.

    Leon LeoPřed 24 dny

    Nadal busted him.. I still find it amazing how Federer is able to beat Nadal sometimes. Fed is no where near as powerful, faxt, or athletic as Nadal. Shows you how great the top three in tennis are STILL

  39. Funnyduck o

    Funnyduck oPřed 24 dny

    @Maine McEachern also federer seems to know just where to go

  40. Maine McEachern

    Maine McEachernPřed 24 dny

    Fed is almost as fast, and is as athletic (they're both extremely coordinated), and generates plenty of power through efficient technique. It's much less about muscle mass to generate power in tennis, and far more about full body coordination, core stability, technique, racket head speed, etc. PS. I'm a Rafa fan.

  41. Pranav N

    Pranav NPřed 24 dny

    If we see a fedal this time it would be like X24(Nadal) going again Logan (Federer), except x24 is a good guy here

  44. Mitos YT

    Mitos YTPřed 24 dny

    All of the highlights plays were points won by Rafa like, come on, we all know that Rafa was dominating but there had to be a good point by Carreño's side...

  45. Mitos YT

    Mitos YTPřed 24 dny

    @pi314159pipipi Hmm, poor Carreño then, I didnt watch the match so I didnt know that, thanks for saying!

  46. pi314159pipipi

    pi314159pipipiPřed 24 dny

    Mitos YT I watched this live there really wasn’t. Most of the points he won were 3-5 shot rallies on serve he only won 13 points on Rafas serve the whole match

  47. Vipul

    VipulPřed 24 dny

    Sometimes I feel that is it some conspiracy that Nadal is almost always put to the biggest tests in Grand Slams, why does he always gets the toughest draws. Kyrgios, Thiem, Medvedev, Djokovic/ Federer, this is seriously inhuman.

  48. Vipul

    VipulPřed 23 dny

    @Max you have a valid point, and I agree that facing one of the 2 is better than otherwise. But here the case is different. If you ask me to choose between facing Kyrgios, Thiem, Medvedev one after the other or the other scenario where you face one out of the two, I would surely choose the later as anyone would. That's why the draw of Nadal is toughest. But you obviously have the right to have you point of view as much I have to have mine.

  49. Max

    MaxPřed 23 dny

    Well it's that way because you only seek evidence that supports your point of view. And actually, this draw favors Nadal. Here's why: Djokovic and Federer will likely have to beat each other AND Nadal in the final, whereas Nadal only has to beat one of the 2. As good as Medvedev and Thiem are, in grand slams, the Big 3 are still the biggest challenge to each one another. So the best scenario for Nadal, Fed and Djoko is to be sure not to have to face another of the big 3 until the final, which is Nadal's case. Tell me, would you rather Nadal faces BOTH Federer and Djokovic, or Medvedev and one of the other 2?

  50. MrGenexxx

    MrGenexxxPřed 24 dny

    Sometimes I feel that there's some conspiracy that there are so many clay masters and none on grass.

  51. pi314159pipipi

    pi314159pipipiPřed 24 dny

    Vipul in 2018 USO his draw sucked also, but he gets his share of easy draws imo 2017, 2019 USO 2017 French. Tsitsipas losing makes Djokovic and Feds side easier as well but in general I think it’s more the young guns keep losing early more than Nadal always having the tough draws

    Marilyn Wasserman because the probability of being a left and a tennis player is low and why did Toni force nadal to play left even though he was born righty ???? Because lefty have advantage in tennis duhhhh
