That last set was very anticlimactic. What happened to Nadal?

Nole, fairly easy sprint from the ground ; bad back and all.

Djokovic- 2011 belongs to him.

That was an epic match. There were so many great points. There aren't too many sporting events that can be riveting for 4+ hours.

Djokovic had the greatest men's tennis season I can recall, even though it isn't really over yet. He has an amazing ability to consistently paint the lines. The rest he got while he received treatment for the 2nd time seemed to give him a 2nd wind.

Nadal is like the NJD of tennis. Great defense and waits for the opponents to make mistakes and beat themselves. His fitness, athleticism and determination to battle for every point are amazing. He might be the greatest grinder I've ever seen in any sport.

Spanish athletes. They don't win by chance! :)



The federation said it will demand that Canal Plus France withdraw the video and abstain from using the logo. The federation also intends to request compensation for its improper use.

It plans to seek the support of other federations in the suit.

The tennis federation received support from the International Tennis Federation, which viewed the joke about Nadal as an attack on its anti-doping program.

ITF president Francesco Ricci Bitti said in a statement that the TV channel should remove the video and "issue an apology to all Spanish tennis players, who have been unfairly implicated."

Davis Cup finals going on. The Czech winners:

and 2012:

The scary thing is that I actually remember the 1980 team...

Haha, I was trying to stream earlier today, but it was choppy. I got to see the end of the first and beginning of the second Federer set. That is really amusing though.

I'm hoping for one last Slam in which Hewitt makes some noise.

First Nadal, now Federer. This is the first time since 2004 (36 tourneys) Federer did not reach at least the quarter finals in a Grand Slam. :shock:

Those 2 were on a collision course to meet, but only at a London pub. :P M Sharapova also lost , as did
Ovechkin's future wife during this 1st week.
I like Roger, will have to see if he will continue to play despite early round loses.

Dojokovic; not a fan. Never was...
