Subject: Has Nadal become a doubles specialist?
Playing tomorrow in doubles final with Marc Lopez against
Nestor/Zimonjic, beat today Youzhny/Santoro 1-6, 7-6(2), 11-9(super
tiebreak).

Doubles final is after the Murray-Federer semi.

For 25 year old Marc Lopez the prize money(59k) would be more than 10%
of his career earnings and his first career title on atp level. :)

59k is per team, Lopez would only get half of it.

But obviously a big moment for him. Played a good match against Jarkko
at last year's FO.

It will be embarrassing for Nestor and Zimonjic if they lose to Rafa
and some nobody. After the Bryans lost to Fed and Stan at Olympics,
those doubles specialists have something to prove.

Yup. They'll probably go after Lopez as much as possible.

Btw, a correction...Lopez is 26+ years old.
