tks, man !
i had no idea how "on fire" rafa was back then.
he outplayed federer from start to end.
yeah, Rafa of 2004 & 2005 was a completely different player! I actually enjoyed watching him play back then as he would go for more, hit winners from 11 ft behind the baseline and believe it or not, he didn't delay time during his serve
Their 2005 matchup was completely different. From what I've seen, this was a heavy, heavy match with tons of spin and errors. But the most amazing thing is that Federer physically
outlasted a youthful ADD Nadal. In the 5th set it was clear that Nadal had run out of gas.
I'll try my best to capture the drama and intensity of this match. Will probably be 20+ mins.
