Federer win what a great win. By far from his best and he can still beat the number 2 at his best. I can't see him losing on grass for a long time.


cant agree with that...they both played very well and it was federers turn this time...still got a losing record to rafa though :wink:

Well I am not going to argue with your point because we all have our own opinions. Nadal played as well as he could have and still couldn't win. I think Federer was really off his game in the 2nd 3rd and 4th set. But did it when it mattered and that makes a great Champion. Well done Federer.

fair enough points...i dont think nadal played as well as he could (those 2 games in the final set where he had federer at 15-40 spring to mind as do the 2 tie breaks) but federer stepped up when it really mattered and, as you say, that's the sign of a true champion...a bit like rafa did in the last 2 french open finals

Brilliant Brilliant Federer!
After that fourth set many would have crumbled but he drag himself back and at 2 - 2 onwards played truly Champion tennis and is in my opinion the Greatest Tennis Player of All.
I think he will beat Nadal at Roland Garros next year to seal the Slam.
WARRINGTONIAN!

EVERTONIAN!

CLINTONIAN!

Hawk eye is it reliable? That ball was out, Federer had a very good case.

True but if it wasn't accurate then it may not have been accurate at other matches. It may have affected the outcome of certain matches
