I really was rooting for Rafa to win this match, but it wasn't meant to be. I hope that he ups his play at the US and Aussie Opens, at least, and maybe even makes the Wimbledon final next year...
Funny thing is, I thought I would vomit if Federer lost. How embarrassing would that be, decked out in Nike gold with Borg in the stands...Yep, me too. This match literally had me doubled over, full puke mode. He was so close. Really would have been fantastic to see Rafa hold that trophy. Going into today, I wasn't sure who I wanted to win. Both great guys, players. But, I got in Rafa's box in the first and stayed there. Damn, can't remember being made nearly sick during a match since Ivanisevic/Rafter. I need a drink. Too bad it's only 11 am where I am
