    I'd have enjoyed it far more if I hadn't wanted one person to win so much.
    Fantastic match, but nail-biting when you're cheering for one person rather than simply enjoying a great game.
    I can never, ever be neutral while watching a sporting event.
    Luckily the perosn I wanted to win did win, so I'm very, very happy

    Fantastic match. It is one that will be remembered. I'd have been happy with either one winning, but I think Nadal's win is good for tennis. It helps to establish the next great rivalry on all surfaces.

    Re: Wimbledon

    I had been telling my brother-in-law for 2 weeks that if Nadal won it all, he'd be able to hear me screaming with glee from where they live 7 miles away. I never actually thought that when the moment came, I WOULD really be screaming and giggling with glee. I went from going nuts screaming and clapping to getting rather teary eyed as I watched him hugging his family. Federer getting all frustrated and moping about the wind early in the match just added to the joy for me. THe guy wants to equate himself with Tiger Woods ... I didn't see Tiger getting frustrated and complaining about his knee during the US Open ... and that was an obstacle he faced that other competitors did not! Sit down Roger ... there's a new best in the game.

    My cousins and I went to go to the movies during the match, so I only caught a few minutes of it. But from what I saw, it was a good match!



    ETA: Did anyone catch the Womens' Wimbledon Final between the two Williams sisters? I'm afraid I missed that one also.

    Well, happily enough, Federer IS still the best in the game and is retaining his #1 ranking. But this year has shown that the man is not infallible... and this is most likely the beginning of the passing of the torch.

    Nadal is definitely incredible. His power behind the baseline is insane.. and some of the rallies these two put together were of an entirely different caliber that I'm envious of anyone that was at the match. WOW.

    Great match. I'm glad the Federer came back to take take it to the 5 sets. Nadal deserved to win but Federer was amazing the way he kept winning points in the 3rd & 4th sets to take it to 5.

    Veruka, that was one fascinating golf tournament. Everyone could tell Tiger was hurt, but he never let on how badly until after it was over. I wouldn't find it hard to believe that he's from another planet. And Mediate's great play and pure enjoyment at being there was delightful. Golf is never boring for me and my kids.

    Re: Wimbledon

    I wasn't against Federer but I was cheering for Nadal....FANTASTIC tennis by both men. I was on the edge of my seat for most of the game. My S.O. and I were joking about how we had big plans to do some things outside today after tennis went off and then hours later..........

    Federer has nothing to be ashamed of...damn good game. It was one of those "thrill of victory and agony of defeat" moments...the joy in Nadal's face and the disappointment in Federer's....
