No. 2 Rafael Nadal responded to being one set from elimination against Robin Haase in the best way possible—he won the fourth set without dropping a game.
The beginning of the fifth set will be absolutely huge. In the two sets Nadal has won, Nadal has gotten a break in Haase’s first service game, and then gone on to win the set with some ease. When he hasn’t gotten an early break, Haase has won the set. It’s been that simple.
Will Nadal’s fifth set be as easy as Federer’s was on Day 1?
