No Coverage but a Victory for David & Rafa

In the end, there was no stream for it. But at least, David's and Rafa Nadal's first ever doubles match was a success - though it was close. After trailing 7-9 in the match tiebreak (played instead of a third set) and after saving two match points David and Rafa eventually managed to beat Pablo Andujar and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-3, 3-6, 11-9. After 79 minutes on court that seem to have been fun for both of them, judging by the photos from the match (a number of those now on the Photo Page).

In any case, their close victory last night means there'll be a rather interesting match-up in the second round of doubles tonight. When David and Rafa will be up against Oliver Marach and Horacio Zeballos.
But - no stream for the doubles.

Before the doubles match, however, and with coverage: David's singles debut.

More soon.

Edit: Here's another clip that includes the match point:
