remember Cincy last year? where he lost to Nadal-- Nando was in "good form" for him at the time and Nadal had just burnt his hand at the oriental restaurant. Nadal played like garbage and could barley swing a raquet and Nando still couldn't beat him LMAO
Falla is a lot better than most people give credit for, especially on clay.
This was exactly my point here, the mentally weak nando would've likely not pulled this match up. How many times did nando just lay an egg in this exact spot?
That match in Cindy was approx a 4 hrs three set marathon,,,, at that point they both needed medics in that third set tb. Plus that was on hards,,,I'm really just making this point with regards to nando on clay. I know ppl will claim he's a better hard courter, but I don't believe it. Spaniards are naturally born on clay and feel like they can beat anyone on this stuff, at least the top guys do
