Congratzz rafa for the 7th RG title...
championship point was lame though.. :Confused:
Rain almost ruined my excitement for the final...


What do guys think , Will djokovic be ever able to hold all the 4 slams at the same time ??? :)
i think he just lost his first & last chance..

It's definitely possible. Fed's prowess isn't what it used to be. Nadal has lost to Djokovic before. And there doesn't seem to be any other major challengers. For now. Djoko is still young. Barring any major injury, why not? Nadal has those knee problems.

The tactic is there, so no doubt he can have another chance in his career. I think Nadal will eventually break down due to his style and age. So there is chance for Djokovic.

Nadal in this stage really like another Lleyton Hewitt in his prime. It is really not a good news for him. We needs to see what is going to happen to him in grass-court and fast-hard court season.

i really hope he gets another chance....& i hope some new players to make a crack at the top 10..
Future GS title contenders apart from top 3 :
Tsonga, Delpotro, Murray, Raonic, Berdych, etc...

I wonder how this Grand Slam thing played a role in Novak's head... He clearly was very nervous, and yet I don't have the feeling Nadal was really dominating him, despite playing great once again during the first games. It will be interesting to see what happens in the upcoming tournaments.
I was supporting Djokovic, but in a way it's "good" that Nadal won. It shows there is still a specificity about clay, and you must not play exactly like anywhere else. But honestly, if there is another match Dokovic/Nadal on clay, I wouldn't bet all my money on Nadal...as good as he is, there have been a lot of sequences when Djokovic was clearly dominating, and a lot of his errors looked more due to his own mental state than due to Nadal's shots.

I agree, Nadal is totally defensive in most time. Nadal really ran for his life, just bring one ball back to play. So I feel like he just become another Lleyton Hewitt.  :rofl_2:

It is going to be very interesting in following years. Nadal certainly will continue decline in term of his speed. Djokovic should have few good years. And we are waiting new players joint the top players.

When will French Open authority get roof seriously?
I know they are talking new tennis centre, but there is no news about this project.

I thought the difference today was that Nole took the court believing yesterday was my day (and it very well may have been) but Rafa took the court believing everyday is my day.

As for the specificity of courts, I wonder what everyone would say if Rafa winds up with 17 total slam titles, 12 of which being RG. I'll bet the discussion quickly shifts from hard numbers to style points  :whistle:
