2-5 to 7-6, Classic Nadal.
Nadal turns 35 on Thursday, Novak is 34, and Roger turns 40 in August. So much respect for the longevity of these 3 legends. We can all be motivated by their hard work, dedication, and discipline.
Popyrin walking around like he's still pissed that he got Nadal as his first match.
Well, it’s a wrap. Just give the guy the title and let’s go on grass.
Can’t believe they didn’t show Popyrin’s set point! Shocking highlights!
Nadal 2-5
Me: Don't tell me he comes back from this
Next frame of video: 6-6

This guy Nadal seems to be pretty good at tennis.

Nadal's backhand is stronger😬
Popyrin after getting to 5-2: "Omg I got a chance at this"

Nadal: *Lol I just feel a bit bad, letting you have some fun*

I'm getting the feeling he will drop 1 set to someone, but that's it. Maybe Tsitsipas in the final or Djokovic in the semi.

The poor kid cheered “c’mon!” once and didn’t even win that game.

This man is playing like it's his first Roland Garros! His passion for his craft is truly amazing. I wouldn't be surprised if he won this at 40.

I think they should have Rafa waiting in the finals and the others should be playing to face him 😭

Typical Rafa at early rounds also nice touch with the neon tshirt which reminds me the US 2010 outfit !

2-5 and winning 7-6 is only practicing under pressure situation of the King of clay.

I don't know why they even bother, by now the tournament should be a competition to see who gets to have a go at Nadal in the finals.
Luis Torres Santos
Luis Torres Santos:
A 3 minute highlight for a 3 setter, at times when they uploaded 5 setters of 3 minutes
Popyrin hung in pretty well. Took control of a good number of points too. Those passes were way too easy for Nadal though. You have to volley insanely well when you do get forward.

Vamos Rafa! Make history with this tournament!
If you play it at slow speed and again backward, you get a 10 minutes highlights and it's quite enjoyable.

I've watched the full match but find myself watching this highlight. Great start Nadal.

Man i want to see him in green..i wish i ask something else to God on that Time🤭😍
Nadal is as nailed on for RG as he has ever been, it would seem. Injury and external factors aside, who can realistically get close to him? Moving onto 21 slams would be a huge moment in tennis.
Damn 5-2 and the guy still didn't win the set?!

Jacob Schmidt:
Well, so much for Nadal getting a tough draw. Both Rublev and Sonego were very disappointing. Hopefully Sinner meets his end of the bargain, so Nadal at least gets some challenge before the semis. Popyrin is yet another example of players not knowing how to close a set that they should have won against the Spaniard. Tennis is so mental in that regard.

Last match 7-6 was amazing one ☝️
U do deserve GOAT as always Nadal 😘😘😘
Andreas Schulz
Andreas Schulz:
When these players volley, it reminds me on softball. They can hit winners from 5 m behind the baseline, but at the net, they play like kids.

He's a machine alright.
Proud to be Spanish as him

Popyrin, well done. You got the talent to be at the top in future.
Andy Haslam
Andy Haslam:
Sometimes that Nadal forehand is just unstoppable. When he takes a step back and unleashes it it is formidable. He already looks favourite to win again as he is still the king of clay.

j c:
man these 3 are not reasonable. they look vulnerable playing ATP tour and once GS started it's like they go install an extra leg or hand or something
1:47 Seeing the score, I really believed that Nadal was going to lose a set for the 28th time in 17 Roland Garros played.

that was impressive from popyrin.
top 5 worthy serve, and the baseline game to back it up.
exactly the kind of opponent that will battle harden rafa going deeper.
hope sinner gets to play him. then the preparation will be ideal.

Being Rafa's opponent at the French Open probably feels like being a pen with which history is written.

Novak already won AO, so I want Rafa wins this year FO title, Roger wins Wimbledon for one more time, and let the US open belong to the next gens, sounds fair, right?
