“Whatever the result, the tennis world has seen

“Whatever the result, the tennis world has seen Rafael Nadal again. Do we know what we missed during his time away? I’d say we knew it when he hit that drop shot to save set point in the second set. We knew it when he stretched for a seemingly impossible drop volley to save a break point late in the third. And we knew it when he sat down on the sideline looking grim in defeat. Winning or losing, Nadal has a way of drawing emotion out of tennis. Few players have ever had the knack for getting involved in memorable matches the way he has, and he was part of another in his first tournament back. Nadal’s not the only one, of course; we’ve had plenty of emotion while he was away. Now that Rafa is back, we’ll have more of it.”
