Vamos rafa in the final

"And how to say this one? The Russian one, doesn't have a bad one also. What is his name, the young one, the tall one? This guy, you know (laughter)? The one not playing too bad. He beat once Sampras in the finals of US Open. Do you know him (laughter)? Safin, maybe Safin? I mean, I don't know, I consider myself I don't have a bad backhand. Not super, but I'm working on it."

VAMOS

Marat&Rafa
* a little bit more 4 marat because he needs it *

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

Re: Nadal def Gasquet 6-7(6) 6-4 6-3

Yeah awesome match. This is one of the first matches I've seen Richard Gasquet play, and I was very very impressed with him. He's definitely another exciting talent for the future.

Tomorrow's final should be exciting too. I like Rafa, but I'd like to see Coria win....... just for those in GM who have been writing his clay season off before it really started.

Gasquet played great and even in the 3rd when he was probably not able to run he was getting bps on Rafa's serve, great run for him and he has beaten Fed as a part of it....Hope Rafa will take the tourney.

Re: Nadal def Gasquet 6-7(6) 6-4 6-3

Congrats Nadal, back-to-back Masters finals... not too shabby....

Well done for Gasquet, very good performance. Only the last two games were a bit too fast, for the rest of the match he was always very competetive and challenged Nadal despite having entered the match as a rather huge underdog before. Promising showing, now the interesting question will be how he will be playing in the upcoming tournaments!

Incredible, both overhyped and overrated kids did very well this week

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Nadal def Gasquet 6-7(6) 6-4 6-3

Great match!

Richard was very impressive, with a wide variety of shot-making. (The backhand is indeed beautiful) I think that he is finally beginning to be at the level that everyone thought he would be. Too bad he was tired at the end.

Rafa showed some heart and was able to pull out of his nerves. I must confess that I don't think that Rafa played this match at anywhere near the highest level I have seen him play (outside of a couple of games in the second set)...but I think that Richard was the cause of that. But, at the same time, I think that this match was important because Nadal did have to steady his nerves when they were getting the better of him, and that is a skill that one needs. I loved how happy Nadal seemed at winning the match and how joyful he was when signing the camera.

My only complaint about the match was the pack of 13 year olds who were squeling for Richard. Their high pitched shrieking about made my ears bleed.

Can't wait to see more between the two of these fellows.

Hee. Either way, some people will be eating crow

I haven't seen the match yet - hopefully I get it on TSN after they are done showing Coria-JCF. We'll see. Until then, the best part of the match for me was seeing the two vile Rafa haters spew hateful garbage for ten pages then mysteriously dissapear when Rafa won. A big LOL at both of them

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Just wanted to add that I do not want to see Richard ANYWHERE near Rafa in the RG draw

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
