Fernando Gonzalez deserved that win, though. He played absolutely amazing tennis! He's transformed himself and is so fit. And just hitting like nobody's business...
And frankly -- Nadal didn't play that well.
I wanted to smack him every time he tried to slide on the sticky rubber surface. (Smart, Rafa. Smart.) He probably re-injured his groin (at least he had to have it taped up).
And I wanted to smack him every time he ran around his backhand, too. What was that about??? In fact, he lost the match running around his backhand!
Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I are both sad to see him go out, though. We love Rafa! But he certainly didn't deserve to win... (I'll skip quoting Rafa's whining about the match, I think. I am not impressed...)
Anyway, it's going to be interesting to see how Gonzalez does next round against Tommy Haas!
Also, Kim Clijsters played a great match against Martina Hingis.
All in all, there have been some great matches during this tournament so far!
