Subject: Nadal was ready to concede the match in the last game he served.
He was down 0-30, his body language was very negative and his eyes
were teary.
He probably realized it was too much.

Probably true. It's that big fight that he puts in every point makes
you wonder if he will give up.

In a way, I agree. Had Verdasco got to 0-40 it would have been over. As it
was when Nadal did it in the next game.


HC, especially for Nadal is the toughest surface to hold his serve, save
many BP etc, grind, the way he does a lot. On clay/grass he may save 0-40 a
lot more often than on HC.

On clay he always puts more emphasis on baseline action, small chance that
the other guy could take over the point with a winner.
On grass his serve is more efective so he can count on that.

On HC his serve is less of a weapon than on grass, and his groundies/defense
combo is less of a weapon than on clay.


In simple language, it's his worst surface.

Short memory from your side: Wimbledon final '07 Rafa gave up that
match when he was 5-2 down IMO..ASnd there are other cases: Against
Youzy at the USO, against Ferrer

No point, I have not seen Nadal ready to concede matches before.

You make no sense...

You claim that Nadal was ready to concede because of what he looked like
in your opinion.

While the truth was that Nadal was 0-30 down and won the game and next
to take the match. That's pretty fucking far from conceding.
