Tonight, Rafa played fellow Spaniard Tommy Robredo (#22) in the US Open quarterfinals. Much like Rafa, Tommy’s having a good comeback year. Unlike Rafa, his momentum came to a complete and total stop tonight. I don’t know what to say about this match that won’t sound disrespectful to Tommy and he deserves better than that. But this was a total beat down from Rafa. Rafa’s through to the semis: 6-0, 6-2, 6-2.
