Lisa Grebe talks about Rafael Nadal’s first singles appearance at the Rogers Cup. After a tough and nailbiting first set versus Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka , Rafa picks up the pace and shows Stan who’s the man. He takes home the win with a 7-6 6-3 win. The tie break took 92 minutes and was the longest in the Spaniard’s career.
“My goal was to win,” Nadal said. “When you come back after (some) time without playing, tournaments are always difficult. I just tried my best and tried to find my rhythm.”
Rafael Nadal now faces Kevin Anderson on Thursday at the Rogers Cup.
Allow me to be the millionth person to acknowledge Roger Federer on his 15th Grand Slam title. What news could be greater for a soon to be father? This isn’t something we will see the last of from Mr. Federer.
