You Gotta Hand it to Rafa

Gasquet was playing out of his mind in the first set and won an incredible tiebreak 14 to 12.  Then Rafa blows him away the next two sets.  No discouragement.  No mind games.  No defeatist attitude.  No 'wow the top seeds are all losing' running through his head.  He just plays like the next number one.  Maybe Yogi Berra was right.  The game really is 90% half mental.  Rafa has the head for it.
