Nadal’s perfect record on the dirt for 2012 was marred as Madrid native Verdasco clawed out the opening set to stun multiple Monte Carlo and Barcelona champion Nadal, who, though he dug out the second set, succumbed in the decider. “Movement is very important for me and I couldn’t move.
I couldn’t hit ball the way I wanted. I lost because I deserved to lose.”
