Loool! If Djokovic & Nadal are as combative in the final as some on this thread, it ought to be an interesting final.    :rofl_2:

Anyway, as for today's play, I watched Paes / Stepanek demolish Soares / Peya.  I'd have enjoyed a better contest, but a well deserved victoy for LP & RS, who beat the Bryans en route.  An excellent tournament for them.

Missed it, too  :(

I really wanted to watch Paes/Stepanek! Too bad these guys hooked up when they were +30. Paes is 40!

As much as I like the B Bros, Paes & Stepanek sure are fun to watch! :))

I really hope for the sake of the final they play like they did in their last encounter.

Djokovic has been playing too defensive after AUS open. I think Nadal is winning this one. Djokovic has gone back to his equilibrium level. Form is temporary but class is permanent !!

Watching the replay of Nadal-Gasquet. Really surprised at how much effort and work Rafa's putting on his ball and leaving them short. Just rally balls for all the effort. He is not playing aggressive.

I have a feeling it's not going to do great in the ratings.  Usually week sporting events end on a Sunday (unless Monday is a holiday, which - today is not).  People tend to 'forget' to tune in! And it's starting at an unusual time (some folks are still at work, leaving work, etc.).  We will see.  Maybe it'll help that you have the #1 vs #2 (although a lot of folks still don't recognize Novak's name).  People in America are getting ready for Monday Night Football.  I hope the ratings are good and I hope the match is good.  We will see.

Ratings don't matter. ESPN threw nearly $1 billion down on the USO alone. They get it in 2015.

I'm just watching Rafa here and thinking this is going to be a rerun of gladiator tennis. Hoping I'm wrong.

8 points in 6:31 included 1 dull rally of 27 balls.

Djokovic is playing so short. Just the way he was playing Murray and lost. I wonder why its difficult to figure that out ?
