    Outstanding match between Federer and Djokovic. I'll enjoy seeing a Rafa/Roger final again, but any combination would have been great. No surprise at all that Rafa knocked Andy Murray out.

    While Nole and Rafa are my two top favorite players, it was a bit depressing to see Rafa lose to Nole so many times in a row.

    Nole had a great run. Shame that it was Federer who put an end to it. He's easily my least favorite player.

    Here's hoping Rafa keeps his #1 spot and keeps Federer at #3 come Monday morning.

    That commercial the Tennis Channel shows with Federer and his Mercedes is egotistical and irresponsible. Shame on you TC!

    I was hoping that Nole would beat Federer. That way Rafa could have beat him in the final and end the streak. Here's hoping Rafa wins on Saturday and earns another French Open title.

    And a late Happy 25th Birthday to Rafa!

    I'm a big Nadal fan, so I am thrilled he made it into the final. He had a couple of rough early matches, but the man is back! I figured he would beat Murray. I do think Murray will get a slam at some point, just not right now. I love Nole, but I think Federer and Nadal final is very exciting. Go Rafa!

    It was a great match until Federer lost steam. I think rallying to win the third set did him in. Bring on Wimbledon.

    I think so too. John McEnroe mentioned that as well when he was rallying back, that he would run out of gas in a 4th or 5th set.

    Put this in the truth is stranger than fiction pile. John Izner and Nicolas Mahut of the three-day marathon first round match that ended at 70-68 last year have drawn each other in the first round again this year. I think the computers are having a good giggle. I'll be watching.
