Great Match - So much better than the Nadal_Fed Semi

And so much better than the Gaudio-Coria final last year too. A real classic. They both played great.

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?

It was a grat match. Too bad, there is no 5 match.

Agree. That's the one regret. It would have been nice for the match to have gone 5 sets. The match deserved it.

Re: Great Match - So much better than the Nadal_Fed Semi

Well said Chis. The Nadal/Puerta final was an impressive display of all court clay court tennis. Nadal is deserving champion and I can't remember a more deserving finalist in grand slam play than Puerta.

Egalite!

Australia final wasn't bad at all. Besides, Pierce vs. Henin was way better
