Novak is playing some AMAZING tennis right now. Wow. 32 straight matches! And a straight sets win over Nadal ON CLAY.

The French is going to be VERY interesting.....

Novak's mental strength is unbelievable right now. In the long rallies it really felt like he had the edge. And even when he had letdowns he bounced right back. That really changes his game.

Yeah, it's pretty amazing. I keep on waiting for him to break down mentally (as he has done in the past) and it has not happened yet. He's playing Murray in a half hour. Excited for that match. Hopefully tomorrow's finals will be a good one.

Something along the lines of "This is Andrea Bargnani. He is a star player for the Toronto Raptors basketball franchise."

So Nadal was up 2-0 in sets today, but down 5 games to 1 in the third set. And his no-name spanish opponent was up 40-0 and serving for the set. The no-name dude didn't win that game. But he had a few chances to break Nadal again in the following game, and after a long game he failed to make the set points. Before you know it Nadal has the match in straight sets. How many guys would fight that hard to come back in that third set?

Nadal's matches have been rather painful for me to watch over the past few weeks. The way he constantly stays behind the baseline and defends and defends and defends just kills me ... he needs to come in a little bit more (not saying right up to the net but at least a half foot to a foot inside the baseline) on some of his shots and just be a little more offensively minded.

This match against Soderling is a little bit better ... a combination of Soderling making more unforced errors than normal and Nadal FINALLY finding the line on his forehands.

Djokovic versus Federer should be AWESOME tomorrow!

You know, I didn't realise that the men were playing tomorrow ... I thought I would miss the Djokovic-Federer match on account of skills lab. How delighted I was to find out that I would be able to watch it tomorrow. If the kid behaves herself.

So far it IS awesome! One of the best matches that I've seen in a while with both players making some sick shots.

Roger looks more focused than I've seen him in a while. And he takes the first set 7-6!

Roger is starting to take control.... serving like a madman and getting into Novak's head. This 2nd set might be a quick one....

Yeah.... I really like Novak. Kinda feel for him.... but he had a good run.

COME ON ROGER!! BEAT NADAL'S ASS!

Side note: On the women's side I like both finalists.... the one thing that REALLY annoys me about Schiovone (sp?) though is her grunting. Holy fack it's as bad as Serena's and Sharapova's.
