I so wish I could see that... and that Federer will win !
that you have no taste, then, John..? :)
Federer is BLANDxCORE.
Federer is delicate, varied and elegant.
Nadal is brutal and boring...
I was blethering on about this in Chris's thread about puppies but yeah, Fed for me too
I only wish I hadn't missed the first two sets
of how good these two are.
I can imagine Federer thinking during a rally "why won't you...just...die!!??"
Must have been a disheartening one for him. He's improved his fitness and form a lot but still has to watch as his opponent unrelentingly dispatches GBH to tennis balls despite being on court for 10 hours in the last 2 days.
Also, this makes it look likely that Fed won't get the record for slam wins now, which is a shame. In a way it's bad for both of them that they happened to be around at the same time as another player who would have dominated in any other era.
I think he'll still do it.
doing 3 finales ( one won ) and one semi of grandslam last year was so bad...
