Nice to see Guga and Courier sitting together. Two very good players.

Rafa hasn't been able to do much with his serve since the middle of the second set. His percentage of first serves has dropped steadily. It was really big for him to get that tiebreak. He's going to have to gut it out now.

He cranked up his serve and took it rather than try to let Roger beat himself. Nice.

I used to think that Nadal had no chance in hell of touching that record... but now I'm not so sure. Probably depends on how well Novak plays over the next 3-4 years. He'll likely be Rafa's main competition.

Disappointed at how that match ended... but Roger just looked drained... too much effort expended climbing back into the match.

Rafa is a damn machine. Full credit to him. In the past I thought that he always beat a "sub par Federer" but this time he took him out when Roger was playing quite well. It's mind-boggling to think that his French Open record is 46-1(?) now.

Gee whiz, the greatest clay court player ever won. Quelle surprise.

Can he at least stop wearing a thong? Watching him pick his ass 54 times a set is a disgrace to the sport of tennis!

What's the point of picking a thong out of your ass? Seems pretty pointless, no?

I was being facetious about him wearing a thong, but he sure does pick his ass a lot.

I played recreationally. Then my joints made it a bit frustrating, and after moving to Toronto there didn't seem to be as many courts accessible like there were in Guelph. I definitely miss it. Some day I might get into playing the old man style of game.
