Go anywhere else, is Spain all the pundits want Nadal to win, America they want Roddick, Swiss they want Federer - it's just what happens. As long as they can see who is better, or playing better - who deserves to win and stuff.


I see what you're saying....I can't speak to what it's like in those other countries, but here in the USA....they don't exactly try to hype up Andy Roddick. I mean he gets the airtime win or lose, but that's simply because ESPN is catering to an American audience. He's considered to be one of if not the top American male tennis player, so they're gonna cover him. But for example, during matches...it's not like they are clamoring for a Roddick win. They tend to hype the guys that are winning. For instance, going into this year's Wimbledon, ESPN was showing more love for Nadal, Federer, and Djokovic. They basically admitted that Roddick didn't have much of a chance.

Well...Sharapova is done.

Sharapova wasnt at her best(her returns were below par) but Kvitova was really good, great returns.
Both players are doing good this year and keep getting better and better.

Kvitova's forehand was great.

WOOP! :thumbsup:

-- Merged Double Post --

A lot of the match, Nadal wasn't hitting wide enough. He need to go wider than the baseline corners to get past Djokovic. He's to fast otherwise.

Djokovic played great while Nadal made some mistakes. And that's not saying that Nadal handed him the title because Djokovic definitely deserved the win. I look forward to seeing these two being the new great tennis rivarly for the next few years as Nadal is 25 and Djokovic is 24. Perhaps we will see a repeat of last year's US Open and have a Nadal/Djokovic final. Did you guys see that one last year? Very good match with Nadal winning in 4 sets. Djokovic has Nadal's number currently. He's beaten Nadal 5 straight times now, but Nadal leads him overall 16-12.

I've warmed to Djokovic - well deserved. Not the epic final I was hoping for, but, still!

After Nadal dominated the 3rd set, I thought it was going to turn into an epic, but Djokovic was able to put it away in the 4th.
