It was a tense week for Rafa Nadal, but the Spanish superstar came out on top. After being struck down by nausea and dizziness, he fought back to claim a sterling victory in a five-set marathon against American qualifier Tim Smyczek. Some much needed sleep helped restore the world number 3 to glory, and by the third round he was back in full form, finding his rhythm and defeating Israeli Dudi Sela.
