Nadal King on clay again- Rafael Nadal, after struggling in the most parts of the match, was, somehow, able to outlast his opponent Kei Nishikori to win his first Masters Series 1000 title of the year.  After making a steady start, under confident Spaniard struggled to fight his mental demons losing the ground that he had gained early in the match. Sensing Nadal’s reluctances in playing aggressive tennis, the Japanese adopted an aggressive approach and started to dominate the World No. 1 in rallies. After playing some sensational shots, Nishikori sealed the first set 6-2 in 36 minutes by smashing 5 winners.

  WzAd: Is Nishikori injured or something or did Rafa just became Rafa again 

  legaungyi: hey comentatros tell us what happened? is Nishi got injured and withdraw??????? 

  Doi: He choked! too bad, he was doing so well. 

  goderer: bad luck nishikori.. have to be fit to beat clay runner... 

  Doi: It is called pacing yourself inspite of injury, he used it all on 1st set! 

  goderer: it seems so surprising and irritating when rafa beats or gets over an injured player he still is rewarded with so many adjectives and when fed defeated djokovic it was more djokovic's wrist than federer's game... loosers and haters end up being commentators i guess 

After dropping his 1st serve in the second set, 13-time grand slam winner Nadal came up with an unbelievable performance to turn the match on its head as he won last 17 points of the second set to clinch it with a 6-4 score line. Again in the third set Nadal made a confident start as he broke physically struggling Nishikosi who was not been able to move due to his back injury. After 3-0 down in the set, Nishikori decided to pull out from the match.

Nishikori seems to be really hurting here, he's virtually thrown in the towel. The big forehand and the big lefty serve continues to work for Rafa, he's got his focus here. This is exactly the strategy he needs to win today's match, attack Nishikori's backhand.
