Federer/Nadal: Wimbeldon Redux

Postby JTWood » Sun Jul 08, 2007 10:45 am

Great match so far. Federer wins the first set in a tie-breaker, and they're on serve in the second.

Am I the only one that thinks Federer looks more energetic when he's not playing on clay? Every time I watch Federer and Nadal play on clay, Federer just seems like he's not as motivated.

New drinking game: Anytime Nadal picks his capri pants out of his butt, you take a drink.

You should be sloshed by the end of the 3rd game. :-b

Love tennis, seems like Nadal hasn't been all that impressive as he's reached the finals this year. You can't have a bad set against Federer.

I'm loving this match. Federer's serve is downright nasty, but Nadal is giving him quite a challenge.

Why don't they break strings any more? Is the equipment just that much better than it use to be?

I remember Sampras breaking a lot of strings and having to switch rackets many times.

They each broke a string in the last set. :-?

Federer takes the second tie-break. 2-1.

Really?

I didn't start watching until half-way thru because I just woke up, but it certainly doesn't seem like they break near as many as they use to.

3-0 Nadal in the 4th.

Federer gets squirrely with his forehand vollies at times.
