Nadal-Gonzalez live blog
Nadal and Monfils swayed along the baseline in front of an enthusiastic -- more so than usual -- New York crowd Tuesday night, producing a few contenders for rally of the season. Nadal eventually wore down the excitable Frenchman in four.
Nadal sure didn't look hurt.
Gonzalez is still one of the game's most explosive players, and he'll be backed, as usual, by those energetic Chilean fans.
He'll need all the help he can get. Nadal has won five straight against Gonzalez, a comfortable straight-setter at this year's Australian Open included.
Stop back at 7 p.m. and let's have some fun.
