Yes Aileen, but maybe he was just hurrying through the match, so he could get his teeth into that trophy! I left the room before matchpoint.......just couldn't bear it!
That's an interesting thought Caz.
I think Nadal's haste was probably due to his concern that the weather might break and seriously interrupt the match. Look how quickly he bounced onto the court when the rain became a bit heavier and the players had to come off birefly, while Ferrer wanted to stay off a bit longer. And there was no time-wasting between points either. What a shame he doesn't hurry more often!
