Long-awaited singles return of Rafael Nadal attracted thousands of spectators. The Montreal Rogers Cup 2009 even sold tickets for “stand-up places”. Unfortunately, the crowd just got 36 minutes of Nadal’s action, since his opponent David Ferrer retired due to a knee injury. I suspect David to have trained too much in the past days, I saw him spend so many hours on the practice courts.

Simultaneously, Fernando Gonzalez and Tommy Haas gave the public a solid first set on Court Banque Nationale. It went to a tie break. However, Tommy had to give up because of his hand, apparently we could see his flesh…

All the tickets holders must have been so disappointed. Luckily for me, I didn’t attend that evening session, I needed a little break (I’ve already been there on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday). Some of my friends who were there were sooooo pissed*

*Olibou, I’m sorry, don’t be mad :)
