Rafa in 2012 Indian Wells, Quarterfinals

(Somebody's feelin' it!)

This evening, Our Hero, Rafael score a come-from-behind victory over David Nalbandian of Argentina 4-6, 7-5, 6-4 in the Indian Wells Quarterfinals. Nadal previously hadn’t lost a set in the tournament, but Nalbandian was playing at the top of his game, impressively winning the final three games of the first set to take the early lead. Then he led 4-3 and 5-4 in the second, but Nadal refused to surrender and fought his way back to take the set, and level the match. Then Nadal went up 5-2 in the third, but then Nalbandian rallied again to bring it to to 5-4. Nalbandian had a few more chances, but could not capitalize, and Rafa took the match. Thank goodness!

Next up: Federer in the Semis! That's going to be crazy. I'm hoping he can win against his long time super-rival. I would also LOVE a John Isner win over Djokovic in the other semi. And let's not forget Rafa is still alive in the men's doubles draw. He plays for the doubles final tomorrow! Lots of tennis still left to be played. I hope tomorrow the luck of the Irish is with the Spaniard! VAMOS!.
