ATP Paris-Bercy: Rafael Nadal's MATCH-POINT meant semifinal!

Rafael Nadal is among the best four at the Rolex Paris Masters, last ATP Masters 1000 of this season, on the indoor hard-courts in Paris-Bercy, for the fifth time in his career thanks to the 4-6 7-5 6-1 against an excellent Pablo Carreno Busta.

The Spanish champion, who breaks the balance at the foot of the tie break of the second set, spreads as in the logic of things in the heart of the third set and obviously maintains the leadership in the upper part of the draw.

First two sets really well played by Carreno Busta, winner of the first one. Nadale recovered the disadvantage, equalizing the score at the tie-break of the second set. Nadal does not take advantage of a handful of break points at the start, but re-establishes the hierarchy of the challenge at 2-1 with a zero response turn and above all repeats himself at the foot of the finish line, setting the score at 6-1.
