Wimbledon 2010: Nadal Down Two Sets To One Early, Federer Repeat?

Michael GathaganContributor IJune 24, 2010

Robin Haase has come out firing early on Rafa Nadal. Haase has over 20 aces already and is bullying Nadal around the court.

Haase appears to have fallen and hurt himself. Since the fall, Nadal has won almost every point. Haase has seemed to given up on the fourth set.

The score is currently 7-5, 2-6, 6-3, 0-4, in Haase's favour, but Nadal is dominating the fourth set and it appears he will make it to the fifth.

Nadal is picking up his game while Haase seems out of sorts since the fall.

This match has evoked the first-round battle Roger Federer had to overcome.

It appears that both will be battle-tested, but can Rafa make it through?
