    Rafael Nadal (1) vs. Novak Djokovic (2) on now in the finals. Djokovic up two sets, but losing handily in the third. Come on Novak!

    So happy for Djokovic, remember reading at the start of the season when he found out he was allegic to gluten and had to change his diet which suddenly improved his training along with his energy levels, then dude goes on to be like 43 and 0.

    Best part is he beat the best player in Tennis at his virtual best. Hope he continues this amazing season, he gets a little mental at ties but he's an amazing player.

    I'd like to play some mixed doubles with the two euro gals on the court. Something about a worn-torn upbringing that really brings out the tiger in the bedroom.

    I can't stand Djokovic. I almost hate watching tennis lately because I hate seeing Federer lose, and I hate seeing Djokovic win.

    Nadal was not at his best at all.

    He hurt his foot half way though the tournament.

    Although he did look very impressive against Murray.

    He said in an interview yesterday that he was getting basically getting a "epidural" in his foot so that he wouldn't feel it at all.

    It was pretty funny because Nadal said they wouldn't let him do it all the time, but just on this occasion.(the whole last week of the tournament.)

    Meh, Djoks beat him 5 times in the last 6 months. Good foot, numb foot, Djok is playing the best tennis in the world at this point. Nadal still owns clay though. Can't wait for the US Open.

    I hope Roger takes it.

    I doubt he will win the whole thing, but the semi's are a given, IMO.

    No one hits the ball the Roger, he'll still have a competitive career as he ages but the speed of Nadal and Djok are definitely problematic. It'll be interesting to see how they play later in their careers.

    that's the thing, Roger is the best player ever, hands down, IMO.

    But he has a losing overall and in Major record to Rafel Nadal.

    WTF?

    You know?

    I still give Sampras the nod as the best, Federer had to wait a bit for the competition to re-ignite while Sampras dominated when the game had titans.

    I got Federer as the best. It sucks seeing him lose to Nadal.

    I got Federer as the best too. He has some time to add to his legacy, but unfortunately I don't think he will add much. Djokovic looks like he might be unstoppable for a bit, but hopefully Nadal will have something to say about that. In a perfect world, both Djokovic and Murray wouldn't be able to win anything, but as it is I guess Ill just settle for Murray.

    I'm pulling for Fed.

    I honestly think he is going to put a smack down on this Tomic kid tonight.

    Strait sets, Fed is taking it.

    Atleast one break in each set.
