2007 MONTREAL MASTERS
RAFAEL NADAL v PAUL-HENRI MATHIEU
6-3, 3-6, 2-6
Paul-Henri Mathieu is enjoying his career best ranking of 23, so it was clear that Rafael Nadal was in for a real test when he faced the Frenchman in the third round of the Rogers Masters in Montreal. That the recent Gstaad winner would have the match for the taking early in the second set was less expected.
Nadal was not playing his best tennis early but summoned up his best tennis later in the match on the important points. .
The second set showed some amazing tennis by both players, showing off their shotmaking and scrambling abilities. Nadal eventually passed Mathieu at the net before finishing off an easy putaway. Nadal let out a big VAMOS and from that point on, his play was more aggressive and too much for the Frenchman.
