After 1000 Rafael Nadal also makes 1001 wins: in fact at the Rolex Paris Masters the Spaniard beat Jordan Thompson for 6-1 7-6 (3), reaching the quarter-finals of the Parisian ATP Masters 1000. Pablo Carreno Busta will be waiting for him.
Thompson has time to move the zero from the game box before essentially acting as a non-paying spectator. If nothing else in the inaugural stage. Nadal serves well, responds well, moves well. He manages prolonged exchanges almost perfectly and eliminates unforced errors from the tactical project.
He even looking for the way of the network in the vast majority of occasions. After a rather prolonged phase of study, obviously consolidated by the quality of the service of both, the tie break almost inevitably turns out to be the safest refuge.
Even if the Majorcan at 5-6 still needs to cancel a set point, the son of a double foul. Nadal, who needs an arm wrestling to position himself on serve, breaks the balance at 2-1 and consolidates the advantage near the finish line.
By fixing the score at 7-3.
