Nadal takes air in the O2

Rafael Nadal came back to the circuit after more than a month of absence to compete in the Masters Cup, an event in which he argues reached the final last year. Despite evidence of non-shooting, machinery is oiled Balearic enough to subdue an intermittent Mardy Fish who sinned inexperience at times.

Rafa Nadal is the player who played more games this season. So far 80 has accumulated behind her, with a baggage of 67 wins and 13 defeats. His last victory took place in an adverse scenario to your preferences, see indoor hard surface, with an awkward opponent like Mardy Fish , who ended up bending by an aggregate score of 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (3 ) after two hours and fifty-three minutes of play on Center Court to the O2 Arena. There was much anticipation to see how Nadal and Fish responded to the fore in London after the long period of rest of the Balearic Islands (39 days away from the circuit) and withdrawals due to injury (Basel, Paris) of the U.S.. The start was delayed because Rafa had to be treated for treatment of blisters on the thumb of his right hand. Fish accused in the early stages of debut nerves in this event (one of eight participants) and dropped his serve in the opening game where you left very clearly that his only commitment was to serve and volley game. Nadal showed lack of pace, but when all was right carbide easier. Even signed a new break in their favor before putting the finishing the first act.

The Minnesota took a 180 degree turn when the right party began operating. Perhaps it had something to do with his previous training as a left-hander Eric Butorac , but the truth is that Fish knew how to play Rafa. He signed an early break, began with a 3-0 win for and managed the basis of income class service, to exercise the art of volleying on the tape and be very safe in the rally from the bottom of the track. Nadal, intermittent flashes, improved in the final rush of September (September saved four balls on serve in the eighth game), but could not prevent the party was resolved in the last race.

The third and final set was a reflection of the fluctuations experienced in the first two. Nadal took advantage on the scoreboard to take advantage of their speed and altitude changes. Just when you signed it 2-0 in his favor had to run to the locker room, a situation that did not sit well with Fish. The American channeled his bad feeling in his racket and signed a contrabreak it took to recover the disadvantage acquired and even take advantage of the bright (2-3). In the stands, Toni Nadal frown denoted by the evolution of his pupil and nephew, however, returned to take charge of getting a degree shock intensity to the game, hitting got on track and taking advantage of mistakes again Fish added. With the game balanced and lacking fuel tanks reached the tie-break, where the right stellate against U.S. Tape Nadal gave oxygen to a fact that led to his room 'match point'.

Nadal leads momentarily Group B, which equals a victory with Roger Federer, who will face next Tuesday at the same stage. Interestingly, the repeat of last year's final.
