I raced home from job to watch this freaking match at noon (started at 9.30 here in Europe) and I got it at 1-1 in the 4th set. Thank you, boss

How Federer was the favourite for this match is beyond me. As a totaly neutral tennis fan I expected Rafzilla to win in 4 or 5 sets, featuring classic abuse of Olderer's backand and grinding him out from the baseline with too much UEs from Olderer on the end.

Nadal alien-like defence was just out of this world. Shots he got back were unreal, especialy the break point when serving for the match. A bit lucky, but overall just too good for Roger today.

Start of new season = fresh and hungry Rafzilla = Roger in big trouble

No guys no ...
I don't get you guys why are you thinking so much on it ? really ?
FIRST - YOU CAN BE like Djokovic as good at retrieving but with more offensive tennis with firepower.
SECOND - ROB NADAL OUT OF TIME and be nearly as consistent... see (Davydenko)

I have a feeling Novak will choke to Murray. He is grabbing his leg and pretending he can't breathe. Now that would be fixed when he faces Nadal. That's what happens when you own someone's ass. But I was hoping for a Murray Fed final Then again, I really don't care who wins as long as Fedal never happens. Heck. Even Roddick winning does not disturb me that much

This has happened so many times now in the same way, that I'm still surprised to see some much butt hurt from some Federer fans/Nadal haters in the first few pages

i don't ever see federer beating nadal in a slam ever again. to beat nadal he has to play full out attacking tennis and stick with it for however many sets it takes. he hasn't the nerve and maybe even the game to keep that up in best of 5 anymore.

the 1st 5 games he ripped at the ball and it was the way to go about it, but even then he started to doubt it with those 2 poor unsure volleys to get broken.

nadal hit some inspirational passes and some out of this world gets, that only futher put doubt in fed's mind as to how to go about winning the match.

For a guy who is sponsored by Rolex Federer's timing against Nadal is always off.

Federer needs to be aggressive for sure. But he needs to be patient and be aggressive at the right moments. That how Djokovic gets the job done. Federer pulls the trigger too early and makes too many mistakes. I thought he'd been working on his fitness, his biggest failing last year, so he could hang tough with Nadal and Djokovic in 2012. Looks like I was wrong as Fed is still making the same tactical errors as last year.

for me he doesn't have the backhand to rally with nadal like djokovic, when they get into rallies nadal does his thing of working over federer's backhand and then the point becomes NID for nadal.


i have to also say matts wilander is on crack. his commentating was beyond crazy at times, talking about swearing at his kids in different languages, punching people. his theories and stories were like a drunk on last orders.
