(UPDATED) PHOTO OP: Dear lucky stars...

"...muchas gracias..."

Rafael Nadal was more an escape artist than a top baller today at the Paris Masters today.

The Majorcan Matador had to save five match points down 5-6 in the second set and overcame a 3-5 deficit in the decider to oust compatriot Nicolas Almagro 3-6, 7-6(2), 7-5. The single-handed slinger clearly had a case of the nagging nerves and needed multiple rub downs for cramps during the 3 hour 15 minute bout. The second seed will face another Spaniard, Tommy Robredo, in the third round.

I imagine Rafa's form will get much better in the next round especially against someone who has no real weapons and who'll give him a nice, steady ball to hit. Oh, the 5-0 H2H in the 23-year old's favor doesn't hurt either.

UPDATE: Here's the new ad for the Balearic Islands that I previewed back in August. It's DEF not better than the first one Rafa shot. No chance.

  1. the ad is horrible, he better play tennis and go shirtless on court...

  2. It is kinda cheesy and for one heck of a long spot there's scaringly little of Rafa in it.

    But I won't complain about some open-shirt-Rafa-running-his-fingers-through-his-hair. o_O

  3. Nadal looks like ghost there in the first pic.He doesnt look fresh at all.
