Very good, even match. I thought Nadal played slightly better, but that's why the play the game. Federer had more miss hits, but also a lot more shots right on or near the line.

LMAO. It got pretty annoying after a while. !+)

Nadal had four chances to break Federer's serve in the 5th set before Federer broke Nadal's serve. :,-(

What amazes me about Federer is that he can win a match so many different ways. Most tennis players have basically one way of winning and that's it. For instance, Roddick needs to serve big to win, Nadal needs to play well from the baseline to win, etc..... Today, I thought Federer was mediocre from the baseline, but his serve saved him and his net play was good enough that it didn't hurt him. One more thought: Did Nadal's injury cause him to lose the match? After he hurt his knee, he certainly didn't serve his hard as he usually does, and I didn't think that he was able to get as much topspin on the ball as he normally does... give credit to Federer though, he won his 5th straight, and took the big points off Rafa....
