Federer hit 2 more winners than Rafa but made more unforced errors, it was close. By no means was it a trouncing as some on here thought it was by trying to make me eat humble pie.
THANK YOU. The stats for the match at least do back up what I thought that I had seen.
It was a good thing to be there. I just was very conscious that Federer kept missing that last shot! Feel pleased that I have now seen both Nadal and Federer play live. At least I may have seen a GOAT or two? They can change with time! Also good that it was a game where you could see why Federer was so good even though not at this best now. Better to see him yesterday than to wait until he is well past his best? He made Nadal play a long behind the base line as he did to all opponents this last week. Unfortunately for him Nadal is better than all at defence.
Next year, with my daughter, we intend to try to get tickets for both semis as long as we can afford them! We want to see Andy and Novak if both are still doing as well as anticipated!
Hoping to get back to work this week after my accident. No tennis to watch so might as well? I have learnt a lot and found some good IT links from you guys at Murraysworld whilst I have been stuck at home. No tennis other than the Davis Cup Final now so I might as well go back?
I note that the live rankings do not take account of the final Davis Cup points so end of year positions are not confirmed after the WTF at O2 but after the DC Final? Only Berdych and Federer could exchange places?
