Impregnable. So at the moment the service of Rafael Nadal in the US Open, where already depressed the Elimination round to held against Philipp Kohlschreiber. The number two in the world, without losing his service and giving only two opportunities to break, liquidated to Ivan Dodig, in a match played mostly to rapid Cannon, 6-4, 6-3, 6-3.
Nadal, who has a mathematical chance of leaving New York number one, was a rock against a powerful rival. Untroubled by is impossible if rivals do not scratch you break opportunities. As well, in first round of twelve ‘big’ champions only conceded two to Harrison and a Dutra Silva.
After three games, you still lose your service. Novak Djokovic, for example, has given it already twice exposing nine ball break. Andy Murray, the champion, has already given a set with Mayer, has made him break on two occasions and has been exposed to losing it in eleven.
Rafael Nadal who won the US Open in 2010 only conceded five breaks in two weeks, but then he leaned more on power, getting stronger than ever. The 2013 version, stringing 18 wins at fast tracks, is more subtle. His balls travel more settled, with poison, and allow you to be sure winners remains. The Croatian Dodig, located on the step 38 ranking, was a nice player. He got it at times, but tried to scratch the rock broke fingernails. Nadal, to stress more its might, closed the match with an ace. In New York, it seems made of granite.
