Amazing Tennis--Federer Defeated

(3) Novak Djokovic def. (2) Roger Federer only minutes ago. If you missed this match, you missed a phenomenal display of the world's best.  At over 3 hours, both men played high-octane tennis until the end.  Tomorrow, Djokovic will play the world's #1 ranked tennis player, Rafael Nadal. 

I think everyone was hoping for a Federer/Nadal match-up, but judging by Djokovic's play tonight, this final could be just as interesting. 


  1. I don't like Djokovic or Nadal. I'm completely disappointed. Djokovic because he's always whining and because he takes FOREVER to get around to serving. (Andy Roddick's impression of that is hilarious though.) No good reason for Nadal. He picks his wedgies less now than he used to. I was pulling for Roddick. Early disappointment.

  2. I like Roddick--his loss was really disappointing. I was hoping for Federer. So, between Djokovic and Nadal, which one do you pick? And which would you rather see win?

    LOL on the wedgie-pulling.

  3. If I have to pick one of these two, it's going to be Djokovic. I just don't like Nadal.

  4. Definitely Nadal. I dislike Djokovic more. My dislike of him began the first summer Michael and I were dating. I disliked Nadal because Michael disliked him, and I didn't care about tennis before Michael. (I actually like him more now because he seems like he's grown up a lot.) Djokovic, I disliked for my own reasons. He drew out matches. Calling the trainer. Needing a stretch. Bouncing that damn ball forever before every serve. Which meant I had to watch tennis longer. Those ball bounces add up. So I'm pulling for Nadal. And Spain doesn't really have a whole lot going for it right now, so they could use the pick-me-up.
