Man, I'm glad that Rafael Nadal-Nicolas Almagro match ended so quickly before I got the chance to write something preposterous, like "Rafa's going to have to be careful. Nic's won two titles on the dirt this year and is playing great here. He might be able to make Nadal do some work."
While I was thinking all of that up, Nadal did away with his childhood chum, 6-1, 6-1, 6-1. So, in his last two matches, he's given up six(!) games. That would be scary if he were playing in the juniors draw. To do that to top-25 ATP players is pretty much frightening.
