i really doubt rafa does anything to numb the feeling in his hand. he needs the feel to make precision shots every moment. his dominant game is predicated on the fact that he makes very little unforced errors.

That was insane. Safin was such a beast, too bad he was a headcase and decided to retire so early. One of the most naturally gifted players of all time. Berdych is like a poor man's Safin.

Fed vs Nadal upcoming. I'll probably make it through the 1st set... have to be up early. If Fed doesn't take the 1st set I don't like his chances anyways.

Anddddd now, the moment we've all been waiting for.... from this corner, ah **** it.


Federer and Rafa gettin' readyy yooo.


Damn I sometimes feel for the women in tennis lol, they aren't nearly as celebrated, they already knew everybody wanted to see the upcoming match, she even said it in the winners interview.

Then again double simply is <<<< one on one.

And I'm not sure Fed can come to net like he did against Murray (60+ times). That's playing with fire against a returner like Nadal.

This strategy is smoke and mirrors. You're not going to be able to run around for forehands and charge the net all night against Nadal.

That's dissappointing.

Down 4-5 and Rafa had chances to break at 3-3 and 4-4...

Nadal pushed him off the court in the tie-breaker. Doesn't look good for Fed. Bedtime for me.
