OT: Federer vs. Nadal, Aussie Open semis

The great rivalry is renewed tonight Down Under in the Australian Open.  The GOAT (greatest of all time) against the man who has owned him.  Rafa has a strong winning record against Federer in the Slams, and Roger has not beat him in a Grand Slam since 2007.  Fed is coming off of major wins over Tsonga and Murray and is playing his best tennis since at least 2012, while Nadal just took out the so-called "Baby Fed", Grigor Dimitrov.  

Who knows how many more matches we will be able to see in this glorious rivalry which has produced the greatest match of all time, as well as quite a few other classics.  So set your DVRs or wake up in the middle of the night for this one if you want to see some entertaining tennis.  

Federer vs. Nadal, 3:30 a.m. EST live on ESPN

Come on Roger!

The big American, John Isner, is stumping Nadal in their first round match at the French. Isner has won the last 2 sets in tiebreaks and it helps he is 6'9" and has one of the best serves.  I'm torn. I like Nadal but this is massive.

UPDATE: Nadal forces his first EVER 5th set at the French. He wins despite Novak level of grit from Isner.
