Get $1500 Fast Cash loan in 1 hour at bestfaxlesspaydayloans.tk Soderling upset Nadal at the 2009 French Open in the fourth round. The hard-serving Swede sent the Spaniard home without a Roland Garros title for the first time in four years. Nadal, however, avenged that 2009 loss during this year's French Open championship, handily defeating the Swede in straight sets to claim his fifth title in Paris. The difference in Wednesday's match between the two rivals was Nadal's consistency versus Soderling's inconsistency. Soderling committed 35 unforced errors in comparison to Nadal's 12. Soderling only managed to place his first serve in 60 percent of the time and was forced to rely heavily on a shaky second serve. He only won 38 percent of his second-serve points. On the other hand, Nadal's second serve was spectacular, winning 61 percent of his second-serve points. Nadal broke Soderling's powerful serve five times throughout the match.

Nadal generally plays an aggressive behind-the-baseline game founded on heavy topspin groundstrokes, consistency, speedy footwork, and tenacious court coverage. Known for his athleticism and speed around the court, Nadal is a capable defender who hits well on the run, constructing winning plays from seemingly defensive positions. He also plays very fine dropshots, which work especially well because his heavy topspin often forces opponents to the back of the court.  Nadal is primarily a baseliner and seldom volleys but when he does come to the net he is a capable volleyer. Nadal employs a full western grip forehand, often with a "lasso-whip" follow through, where his left arm hits through the ball and finishes above his left shoulder—as opposed to a more traditional finish across the body or around his opposite shoulder. Nadal's forehand groundstroke form allows him to hit shots with heavy topspin—more so than many of his contemporaries. San Francisco tennis researcher John Yandell used a high-speed video camera and special software to count the average number of revolutions of a tennis ball hit full force by Nadal. The first guys we did were Sampras and Agassi. They were hitting forehands that in general were spinning about 1800 to 1900 revolutions per minute. Federer is hitting with an amazing amount of spin, too, right? Twenty-seven hundred revolutions per minute. Well, we measured one forehand Nadal hit at 4900. His average was 3200."  While ...

14.11.2009. BNP Paribas Masters 2009 (ATP 1000) - Serbian Novak Djokovic extended a brilliant run of form by outclassing world number two Rafael Nadal 6-2 6-3 to advance to the Paris Masters final on Saturday. The Serb, who beat world number one Roger Federer in the Basel final last week, will face local favourite Gael Monfils or Czech Radek Stepanek in the final of the last event of the regular season on Sunday. Spaniard Nadal, who has not won a title since beating Djokovic in the Rome Masters final last May, will now prepare for the Nov. 22-29 World Tour Finals in London featuring the worlds top eight players. The first set was tight until Djokovic earned three break points in the sixth game, firing a backhand winner on the first. Nadal kept struggling on his serve and went on to offer his opponent three set points with an unforced error two games later. Djokovic hit a return winner on the first, wrapping up the set in 33 minutes. The 22-year-old Serb stayed on top in the second set, winning the first two games to love and breaking Nadal in the second with a forehand winner.

I have composed this ballad as my reaction to the news that Rafa will be coming back in time for the US Open. I'd be delighted if this happens... A Ballad for Rafa Tomorrow's gonna come When the sun blazes Its myriad hues Blue cotton hovers Swiftly ushering in, sparkling moods. Tomorrow's gonna come When the snowy maned lion Lurks the ethereal-like dungeon Its pillow-soft dagger floats, tenderly piercing through The sharp-edged volatile rants. Tomorrow's gonna come When the tranced fandom climbs The infamous sycamore tree Impishly spying at, the thunderous thuds Of bygone missed shots. Tomorrow's gonna come When the breathtaking bloody-red horizon Flashes its anaesthetic smile Swigly sucking out the seas ebb-tide Producing an arid camels desert. Tomorrow's gonna come When earthly weakling keepers Stand up in muscled arms In unison, pursue to wrestle the faithful fawning of figwort peccants. Tomorrow's gonna come When all has healed To the worn-out helmsman Quick return as the lightning dances Following an electrifying thunderbolt. Tomorrow's gonna come When Rafas minions Be swayed back to addicting scut work Logging on at rafaelnadal.com Or at rn.activeboard forum. Tomorrow's gonna come When Rafa returns to top spinning Pants tugging, hair shaking And all those trophies We all so dearly miss.
