In schooling upstart Ryan Harrison in the U.S. Open's first round, Rafael Nadal pulled the trigger on a vivacious passing shot/overhead smash. And it came off of Harrison's own overhead shot out wide to Rafa's forehand. See it here:
Forever type A—that's our Nadal. The world's No. 2 ATP star went on to rout Harrison by the count of 6-4, 6-2, 6-2. In the wake of his compelling Cincinnati triumph, do you think Rafa reigns as the clear-cut favorite to claim this major championship? It would be his second among 12 Grand Slam titles total.
