Spanish second seed Nadal, chasing a calendar Grand Slam, recovered from losing the third set for the second straight match to beat Lithuanian journeyman Ricardas Berankis 6-4, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.

Being up 2 sets to 1 is not really a scare, and the fourth set wasn't even that close.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Djokovic will most certainly annihilate Nadal, but it is less likely that Nadal will even reach finals...

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

I agree that I think it's alarmist to call being up 2 sets to 1 "a scare". Swiatek going to a decider is definitely closer to scary for her, I'm sure, though.

Vamos, Rafa!

0 ( +1 / -1 )
