WOW! That was the best match I have EVER seen. Either man could have won but Nadal prevailed and has finally won an Major other than the French.

If you did not see this match, then somehow find a way to get a copy. It was epic.

At this point, even though I am a huge Federer fan, I feel Nadal will beat him to the career Grand Slam and within 2 to 3 years, he will get the real Grand Slam. This is a loss that could haunt Federer for the rest of his career and one that will launch Nadal to #1 and widen the gap between him and Federer.

The only thing that could hold Nadal back from utter dominance is complacency.

"Marriage is like that show ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’, but it’s not funny. All the problems are the same, but you know instead of all the funny, pithy dialogue, everybody is really pissed off and tense. Marriage is like a tense, unfunny version of 'Everybody Loves Raymond', only it doesn't last 22 minutes. It lasts forever."

Wpob I agree with you wholeheartedly. I was rooting for Nadal and he must be the most mentally tough athlete not named Tiger Woods. Up two sets to love, I thought this was close to being a repeat of Roland Garos. Turns out Roger Federer showed me what a champion is. Every time Nadal was up 15-40 on Federer's serve, you could count on an ace coming. It got to be downright silly. Federer flat out imposed his will on Nadal time and time again and Nadal did not crack. This was flat out incredible and I can't wait for them to hook up next year. I hope that he develops a championship level hard court game. I really could enjoy watching these two play four times a year for the next several years.

That was epic for sure.

ESPN Classic is going to replay the whole thing Monday night for those that didn't spend their entire day watching it.

While I've always respected Federer's talent, I can't stand him being the top guy in tennis so I couldn't be happier that he finally lost today.

Hopefully Nadal can keep it up.

Perhaps even better than the match was the pure class shown afterwards from both Nadal and Federer towards each other, and John McEnroe's exclamation that it was an honour just to have watched that match.

I'll tell you what, I'm pulling hard for Federer at the U.S. Open. A talent like that can't go a year without winning a Slam event.

“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras
