Federer beats Nadal 3:1. Jesus, those were some fun last 20 minutes.
I was at times just baffled by what kind of balls they weren't even running for.Nirvana said:Like I said after Roland Garros nowadays Federer has the physical edge over Nadal, probably (I say probably because we don't know what could have happened without the sandstorm that affected the match in Paris) still isn't enough for clay but on fast surfaces is Federer that he has to loose, today Nadal lasted two sets, in the third he started to make errors after errors, especially long rallies almost always ended with him throwing the ball in the net or outside the pitch, only in the end he tried desperately to fight a bit but was like a wounded beast whereas Federer still looked like he was just come out on the pitch.
Anyway is incredible how they have declined since their prime, this morning Sky aired the 2008 final and compared to that today looked like a slow motion, the level is really low if they still dominate the scene.
On other news Nadal was already qualified for the finals after the QF win and if Federer will win the tournament he'll maintain the first place in the race with a 300 points lead.
Just the two? Feel for those of us who watch cricket and F1 as well. It’s a mega weekend and the remote, iPad and phone are going to be working hard :lol:sir fly said:Will be a tricky weekend for fans with Wimbledon finals and the Tour at the same time.
I've totally forgotten about cricket and F1.Pricey_sky said:
Had plenty of #1s without Slam titles recently, so she's not that bad.gunara said:I hope Halep can be more consistent throughout a season. I always think she's currently the real number one in this far-from-amazing period of women's tennis, but for that she's achieved so little.
Yep she played her absolute best tennis. In particular her backhand was incredible, turning defence into attack.BullsFan22 said:Halep played really well. She played like Djokovic, hardly missing (literally had only 3 Unforced Errors), returned everything, forced Williams to hit the extra shots and played aggressive when she had the opportunity. Mental toughness in these big matches, GS finals has been a question mark for Halep, but now winning her second slam it should relax her and hopefully she continues to play well and win more.
