This match was as edge-of-your-seat as they GET. Verdasco BROUGHT IT to Nadal, big time. He was on fire and had an answer for nearly everything that Nadal brought his way. It was a phenomenal display of top notch tennis from two remarkably talented Spaniards. Whatever training Verdasco did in Vegas with Gil Reyes and his talk with Agassi obviously WORKED! I was so pleased to see Rafa through to the final after an epic match. This was worth waking up at 3:30am for - worth every second of lost sleep. If only more matches could be like this. Verdasco deserves HUGE applause for is performance and Nadal equally so for answering the challenge.
