As Rafael Nadal looks to add to his 12 Grand Slam title wins, he’s faced against Croatia’s Ivan Dodig in the third round of the 2013 US Open. Nadal was able to pick up the US Open title back in 2010, and this year he won the French Open as his momentum picked up. After missing last year’s US Open with an injury, Nadal’s hungry for another win.
Currently up 6-4, 3-2, Nadal is looking sharp in today’s third round. He’s been back to his usual form as of late, causing Djokovic to remark that, “First of all, Nadal is definitely back, and he’s playing maybe the best tennis that he has ever played on hard court, really. He was very aggressive and he seems like the changed his game a little bit. He’s stepped in a little bit more. He knows that know he has to be a little bit more aggressive than he usually is because of, I guess, his knees and everything and because hard court is not clay. It’s not his favorite surface. It’s faster.”
Nadal’s wearing the Nike Air Courtballistec 4.3, a model which is built with durable DragOn 2X material and breathable mesh. The Nike Air Courtballistec 4.3 features Lunarlon cushioning in the forefoot and Max Air in the heel for impact protection, while a XDR outsole adds traction and long-lasting durability to the model.
