Semifinal in Miami starting right now. Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal. Gotta love when these two play, it has become quite a rivalry.
Let's go Roger!
... didn't he play in a match late last night? Thought I saw it at the bar, unless it was a replay.
He played pretty late against Berdych and had to go 3 sets. Roger's opponent retired after I think 3 games yesterday, so he'll definitely be more fresh.
Federer seems like the one who's worn out though.
Thanks for the head's up.
And yes, go NADAL
Roger needs this one so bad
Yeah, or, you know, the tennis team.
is a national hero, but there is a feeling his best days are behind him now.
I'm not losing hope, but Djokovic, Nadal and Murray look very strong going forward.
Murray, like most products of Great Britain, is more hype than anything. Don't get me wrong, the guy can truly play the game, and has a fabulous skill set, but when he needs them the most, they don't seem to be there. He needs his mind to show up to some of the big matches.
As for Fed, I think he has more variety to his game than years past, but that sense of urgency is not there with him on a consistent basis like it used to be. Maybe that is a product of his age, maybe that is a product of his success. Also, as he used to say it himself, you are only as good as your second serve, and right now his second serve is not scaring anyone. I think he can still hang with Djoko from a pure matchup stand point, but Nadals top spin forehand has always been a matchup nightmare for Feds one handed back hand.
