Blake could not handle anything resembling a drop shot, slice and had trouble with lobs too. Mariano hit some incredible shots under pressure.

That last double fault was downright ugly. Worse than Venus!!

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

¡vamos negro carajo!

It was a long time since the last time he made a final. He needs to take this tournament.

Handful of SP's in the second set- couldn't get any of them, and throws in a double on MP. James...

Congrats to Zabaleta, really kept his cool. Good luck against Dr. Ivo, mate.

To be fair, Zabaleta played pretty much universally stunning points on all of the SPs that James had. I can't remember one off the top of my head where James made a mistake.

I would like to see Zabaleta and Canas playing the finals against each other naked. Just a thought.
