NADAL SURVIVES ISNER’S ATTACKS IN 5 SETS
Tue, 24 May 2011 06:35 PM EDT

For the first occasion the 5-time champ Rafael Nadal played his opening-round match against American John Isner, and experienced his first ever five-set match at Roland Garros and also matched the amount of tiebreaks he’s lost in his career at the French Open.

Nadal did extremely well when he was required, winning the final two sets against John Isner on Tuesday to proceed to the second round at the French Open with a 6-4, 6-7 (2), 6-7 (2), 6-2, 6-4 triumph. Vegas odds.

The Spaniard, who is 39-1 at Roland Garros, played a five-set match at Roland Garros for the first time in seven visits. Nadal last lost a set at the French Open in 2009, when he was disqualified by Robin Soderling in the fourth round. He had never until that time dropped a set in the first or second round.

The current number one tennis player Nadal is attempting to match Bjorn Borg’s record of six French Open titles.

Nadal arrived to this tournament after being defeated by Novak Djokovic on clay in the finals in Rome and Madrid. But the top-ranked Spaniard is still considered by many to be the favorite at Roland Garros. Betting lines.

That didn’t seem to matter at first anyway to Isner, the man best known playing in the longest tennis match in history last year at Wimbledon. Regardless of losing the first set, the tall American held strong and forced Nadal into a couple of tiebreaks, where his big serve helped him put Nadal on the defensive. Sports scores.

But with only six unforced errors the rest of the way Nadal proved he is still the man to beat on clay.
