I was away in Dornoch this weekend in a hotel with limited wifi, so just catching up. Well done to Kevin Anderson and Rafa. If Rafa wins 19, will he already more than equal Federer, as doesn't he have Olympic Gold from Beijing?
He does, defeating Fernando Gonzalez in straight sets in the final.
As one of those people writing Rafa off a few years ago, I'm eating a huge piece of humble pie!
I think he's playing much better these days, much more aggressive and much more net play, at which he is very good
Seems less twitchy too.
As for Kevin, well done and all that, but such a boring player IMHOr
Got very "lucky" indeed this year.
I haven't seen less twitching but I have noticed for a while that there's been an absence of the rather embarrassing wedgie-picking.
I agree Kevin is a bit boring, and although I did watch the final I wasn't exactly riveted to the TV, but at least he had the honesty to say when he got to the semis that the absence of Andy and Novak had made things easier for him. However, given the recent injury problems he's had, which saw him slump way down the rankings, I don't grudge him his success, and his match against PCB was a pretty tough one.
