Not taking anything away from Stan, because he deserved it 100%...but Nadal had won 26 sets to Stan's 0 before in their previous 12 matches. While it's true Stan could have maintained that fire, I think Rafa would have fought back to win the 2nd set (tiebreaker) and from there on it would be have been a great match. He looked pretty bad against Baby Fed early too. Rafa is a master of willing himself to wins. Hell, he withstood Djokovic while he was on fire at the US Open.
Granted, by me saying all that I am taking away from Stan's win
I apologize, I repeat great match by Stan. Deserved this slam
But I am 100% sure Nadal will be back. Vamos
