Nadal and Gasquet… LIVE!!!

KUALA LUMPUR–The score read 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 in favor of Rafael Nadal over Richard Gasquet last night at the Malawati Stadium here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. But that only tells a small part of the story. Nadal fist-pumped. Gasquet drove his topspin backhand straight down-the-line. The crowd snapped photos and screamed. It was a night to cheer, clap, and never to forget. Will post a full-length story soon. But for now, enjoy these photos…
