He was never up a break in the 5th. He came close on two occasions but Federer served some bombs and Nadal couldn't come up with the goods.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

I mean, on what exactly are these pundits going? Fed's incredible grass streak? Perhaps Rafa has a mental advantage but Fed DEFINITELY has the edge on grass with him. Just no doubt about it. Though I do think Rafa's closer to winning from Fed on grass than Fed from Rafa on clay. But still, if I were a pundit (), I would've picked Fed to win Wimbledon. I hope the contrary of course.
Lots of people want Fed to go down badly and hope it will come as soon as possible... Any "on form" player will be their pick to do the job, Djokovic at the beginning of the season, Nadal these days... Roddick will probably be their pick to take him down at the USO

He got pushed in the 2nd round by some unknown American to 5 sets.

i think federer will beat djokovic and roddick in straight sets if they meet at this wimbledon but i think nadal will beat federer in 3 or 4 sets

True, Nadal won't lose a match till he retires. Period.

Why ?
And to whom exactly ?
He owns Federer thanks to the match-up.
Djokovic is to weak mentally and physically to ever beat him again
Ferrer is a spaniard so he automatically bends over when he plays Rafa
Davydenko = mental midget...
i see absolutely no one who has what it takes to beat Rafa nowadays.

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.
