    Was watching the Nadal-Gojowzyck match yesterday. Nadal still not back to form, backhand wing is not working. Even Gojowzyck began to work him on that side by the end of the match but was too inexperienced to execute his tactics well. That Nadal may still win the tournament is another matter. Court was pretty fast, pleasant surprise after the extremely gritty Shenzen surface. However Tokyo seems to have slowed down.

    Klizan levels with Nadal in the QF, deciding set in progress. Nadal lost a first serve to time violation while facing set point. Evidently pissed him off and commentators are making apologies on his behalf since then. I don't understand why it has to be such a talking point every time. A rule is a rule. Even Sampras was given penalties for time violation back in the day.

    Meanwhile, Cilic went off to sleep against Murray, the Brit triumphing quite easily and showing glimpses of the form that got him two slams not so long ago. Some spectacular and unbelievably effortless passes in that game. And Dimitrov did as Dimitrov does against Djokovic, waiting one more year to 'emerge' as the next big thing of tennis. Hope it will be before his retirement at this rate?

    Under pressure, Nadal pulling off some great volleys to defend his first service game of the third.

    Klizan was not to be denied in the end, won the third 6-3. The shot he came up with on match point - a leaping crosscourt forehand smash hit almost to a right angle and just painting the singles alley on its way - summed it up. He was fearless and even getting broken by Nadal didn't seem to daunt him. Nadal did try to mix it up a bit by coming in more often in the third but he didn't ultimately pursue that tactic with enough conviction and even lost some points as he netted the volley. Massive upset. Klizan did trouble him at Wimbledon and this time, he saw it through. It might be a once in a blue moon event, still Berdych better not take Klizan for granted.
