First Murray blowing tons of opportuntities in the 5th set on those break point chances. Don't me started with Nadal. Amazing no one can beat this guy despite so many chances to do so. Its not like Djoker is acting "Federesque" and blowing out people from the onset like Fed used to do. So many chances there to take this guy and no one can do it despite a plethora of chances

You better thank the Djoker. Nadal has Sampras's slam total in his sight. I for one would not like to see Nadal tie Sampras.

Nole did some chocking as well, but the minute Rafa missed that easy BH at 30-15 on his own serve against Nole at 4-2 in the 5th set, I knew it was over.

Yeah it has nothing to do with Nole raising his game in crisis points at all does it

He smashed a return winner MP down against Federer, he saved the BPs against Murray at 5-5 with a crushing DTL forehand and service winners, and went into beast mode against Rafa today

Hows that? You can pretty much write Nadal off if Nole is around. Nadal has no belief he can beat Nole anymore. Nadal will be lucky to win even 11 slams much less get to 14.

You can't really blame Rafa much for losing this one though. We're talking about someone (Nole) who has owned him (Rafa) hard recently and he had to face this guy on his favorite surface which is Rafa's worst surface. The fact that he was so close of winning this match is amazing.

These are my top three players of all time 1. Rod Laver 2. Federer 3. Sampras. I want it to stay that way. Sampras is a legend and is in the same bracket as Laver and Roger. Time for Murray to step up and help the Djoker in his task.

Nadal and Murray both hit it with a lot of top spin. Thus, they use more energy in their shots than someone who hits it flatter like Novak.

I don't blame Rafa too much, but Murray served for the match both this tourny and in Rome, and he still lost. Murray is the king of chocking. His serve is very inconsistent, it pretty much sucks. People keep saying Murray will win one eventually, but I could see Novak beating Murray for the rest of their slam careers.

As for Samprass? I think he had the best, most clutch serve in the history of the sport. If he was serving for the match, no way would he chock like Blandy Murray.

Yes he has been fortunate. Fed should have put him away in NY and Murray and Nadal could have both put him away here. But he has extremely high confidence right now, he should get some credit for barely missing a ball at the end of these matches and going after the ball when possible. Rafa, Murray and Fed all got tight, he didn't.

That suggests a strong era! Winning a semi then a final in 5 sets shows he can know come out on top in tough competion!looks better to win in a even battle with a apponent of similar abiltiy that to get crushed, like Nadal did to fed at the french final one year! 6-1 6-3 6-0

Tell me about it. Nadal was clutch all match (look at the breakpoint conversions) and did amazingly well to get in front. He makes one easy error (at 30-15, not even like it was a 30-30 or break point) and he's labelled a choker.

Yes, Murray served for the match in Rome, and should've done so in this Semi. Anyone with a brain knows this is what I meant, only a nit picking retard, who had no actual points to make would not understand this.

Yes, it's spelled "choke", my autocorrect messed up. So that's one misspelling. Where are the other "misspellings"? If it's just ONE misspelling, I'd think you just made a huge ass out of yourself by exposing yourself as an retard. And where are the "misstatements"? As in multiple.

Well, we know Nadal isn't a choker. Novak just matches up to him incredibly well, and this is not a great surface for Nadal.

Murray on the other hand is a career choker. His serve is garbage, and he is in denial. I look forward to seeing this ugly duckling never win a grandslam.

Re: Is tennis becoming inhumane ?

I don't why making them play in extreme heat/humidity/ slow courts is a good thing. It lowers the quality of tennis, makes injuries more likely.

Djock recently complained that he still wasn't getting the big sponsorship deals like Nadal and Fed. And that he is still paid less to appear in events than Nadal or Fed.

Djocko just hasn't connected with the public in the same way. I think he tries too hard, and play acts too much. That nobody knows the pain I'm going through look, really put a lot of people off.

I don't like his personality, but Novak is going to finish with a lot of slams. He will over-take Nadal, the question is can he approach Fed?
