If he is champion on Sunday, he will equal Roger Federer with the record of 20 Grand Slam cups. Shocking Insane.
But for this there was a semifinal match. A eternal 14 minute initial game showed the pattern of what the match would be. Much more disputed than the result indicated was the first set. Were 67 minutes in which the Argentine, when he gave up initiative, let Rafa get into the aggressive field. Thus he maintained the advantage to seal the 6-3.
The worst moment of the match for Peque was the beginning of the second. Granting unforced errors and lacking in depth. Nadal does not usually take licenses in a similar situation and sentenced a new 6-3. Although he had the best of the best on land in front of him, Diego was seen to be upset, imprecise and uncomfortable. Far from being able to dominate what was within his grasp.
The best was seen in the third set from both. Breaks, discussions with the umpire, dribbles on the lines, touches, volleys and a high level that led to the match until the tiebreak where the Spanish brought out your candidate badge and put things in their place. He 7-0 made things more than clear.
As it happened with Nadia Podoroska, who debuted in a Grand Slam semifinal, the Argentine played his best Grand Slam. He jumped into the Top 10 for the first time and will be No. 8.
