RG final hadn't been moved to Monday since 1978!

wrong, in 1978 Borg defeated Vilas in straigts on sunday. as I posted you have to find 1973 when Nastase defeated Pilic, what I didn't want to mention is that the final was completed on tuesday back then.
Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.

For me, Djokovic just needs to stick with the tactic. Gives deep returns and plays a lot of short and deep cross-court forehands to Nadal's backhand, and then hit forehand down the line. If Nadal catchs it, then uses backhand or forehand do it again. That is the play works so many times against Nadal. What it does is Nadal will use much more energy in entire match. Much more than Djokovic. Just don't place too much ball to Nadal's forehand side.

In other hand, Nadal needs to give 1st serve and high 1st serve percentage. And he has chance to use this resume to bring energy back. But so does to Djokovic.

For some reason it seems like Nole will be able to give the energy required for 2 sets more so the energy required for 5 sets tomorrow.  It has to be a nightmare running all that Rafa crap down for 5 sets on clay and probably seems near impossible especially early on when you see the task at hand.  It's a huge task tomorrow, especially if Rafa comes out firing like he did today at the start.  Either way, I know if I was Nole I would be more positive knowing that I would only have to run my butt off for 1.75 sets rather than 5.  Of course he has to win the 4th to see that last set.  Hoping to see that 5th set!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I just feel that Rafa might benefit from all of this. Nole needed some time to find his range, starting playing some great tennis, blowing Nadal off the court ... then f.ucking rain, so pissed .... Nole tends to be slow when he starts the match ... I can only hope that he will find a way to take this into 5th and then whatever happens it happens ... I'm so disappointed with RG this year.

gen. swish, rafa is mentally the strongest on tour.......he chokes for different reasons.......his inherent ability and habit of fighting through adverse situations often pulls him towards creating more and more difficulties for himself.......he thrives under pressure.......watch him play a blinder tomorrow when novak is the one who's expected to deliver from get go with the overnight momentum he's carrying.......



Based on what I've seen a while ago....Start da Game = Shankar?? Sure types like one.

@Delayed French Open Final. this rain delay just ruins the viewing experience for the fans. It might have helped Djokovic regroup, but it's just gonna be so difficult to catch the final now... -.-

Yes I suggested that yesterday. Especially that Djokovic seems slow so far in the early stages of matches. I just have a feeling that Nadal will win somehow. Hope its just a bad feeling !!

I've just heard them saying that a pretty horrendous weather is lined up at 3PM (Paris time) which just blows away your head why then should they start the match at 1PM ?
Its raining here in Ukraine, a light drizzle. Hence a little later the clouds would have made their way to France !!
