    The first 2 sets Murray didn't play as good as he did with Nadal. I found the first 2 sets a bit boring.

    First GS title for Fed after he becomes a dad.

    Ghaleon : if Nadal won't recover very soon, he'll lose points from tourneys he won last year & will slip down further the rank. And I agree, Fed for the French Open (and Wimby and USO)

    Han : did you get to go to the stadium again for the final game?

    Ha, I'm surprised that none of you Fed haters showed up & started the party already

    Congrats to Soderling to play superb today. May he gets into final and gives Nadal another spanking this year. He deserves the French Open title if he can play like this in semi & final (well, he's been playing great since round 1)

    If one can beat Federer and Nadal in one tournament, then that person really deserves the title (like DelPot did back in USO 09).

    I'm sad that Fed loses and ends his 23 consecutive SF streaks. But all good things have to come to an end eventually

    Congrats to Nadal. He deserves to be #1 this year, for he is the best player so far. I'm really impressed & surprised to see his new serve working well. He proved everybody that said he can't win USO were wrong. Good play too, even though I still can't enjoy his game.

    Congrats to Djokovic too, for showing that he is back on top. I hope this USO will be his turning point to be a way better player next year. He has the ability to beat Nadal

    Little bit dissapointed with Federer. After a good summer run @ Toronto & Cincy & USO (up to semi), he somehow fell apart (or having a brain freeze moment) in semi (2nd, 4th and 5th set). Darn it! Hopefully his new coach can create some magic together with him next year. I also hope if Federer has seriously lost motivation to play tennis any longer (after having twin babies etc), just retire now before it's too late. I rather see him retired than playing without heart/motivation & keep losing.

    Women's side is much better than last year. Sharapova is improving little by little, Wozniacki has a good summer, Clijsters playing really really well (specially in the final where she spanked Zvonareva).

    I had such good summer enjoying tennis this year. I also had the opportunity to watch Cincy quarter finals (Murray-Fish, Djokovic-Roddick, Federer-Davydenko). Saw some of those players up close on the practice court (Nadal too! But he played the night game, so I didn't watch). Seriously thinking about going back next year, specially because starting next year Cincy will combine men-women in the same week (instead of back-to-back week). Anybody here interested to go??

    Was going back several pages & found something interesting. 2 things I learned from this year :

    1. Trust what the player said. They're the experts. They know what's going on.

    2. Never write anybody off until they do/say so themselves. People said Federer was done/finished after having a bad 2008 year. He proved everybody was wrong & came back strong in 2009. Likewise with Nadal. After a bad 2009, a lot of people (including me) said he was done. Yeah...he came back stronger & like Federer did, he proved those people are wrong once again.

    As much as I hate Nadal, there's something about Federer & Nadal that commands respect for both players.

    One has to admit it since this year the result speaks for itself. Only a fool won't admit that. Same thing could be said with people that won't admit that Roger was the better player before this year

    But nobody can guarantee that Nadal will (or can) surpass Federer. The possibility is there, whether or not Nadal can break the record, it still has to be seen. 2 yrs? Nah, I don't think so. IF it happens, it'll take more than 2 yrs.

    Lunar honey, you are a fool then

    I hate Nadal as much you hate Federer, but I give credit where it belongs. Now I can only pray that Nadal will retire soon so I don't have to keep watching him picking & sniffing his butt everytime he's going to serve.

    I'm pretty sure Nadal's knees will crack soon and he will soon get a whole lot more competition from mopy Murray and Djokovic. Besides, I don't think Federer is going anywhere anytime soon. He is here to stay atleast till London 2012 Olympics.

    goodrick : are you Federer's fan too?

    Lunar : behave!! If Nadal & Fed can get along, the fans should be able to respect each other too!

    This is one boring month! Can't wait for Aussie Open. I hope Fed can defend his title....

    Women side is wide open since Serena won't play. I'm hoping Kim or Wozniacki will win.

    Congrats to Clijsters & Djokovic for winning the 2011 AO.

    Sad that Fed lost to Djoker, but since Djoker is my #2 guy after Fed, it didn't hurt as much And it helped a lot too that I don't have to see any buttpicking or trophy-biting in this final.

    Tennis forum is buzzing with Li Na's achievement. I like her during her interviews, but lost some of it during the final since she complained left and right. She sure can hit the ball hard, but Kim is a much better player.

    With so many upcoming young players making a splash in this tourney both in men & women side, I'm wondering, like everybody else, if this is the begining of the end of Fedal era on the men side (I sure hope not!). On the women side, with Venus injured all the time, Serena out injured (or not focused 100% on tennis anymore), Henin retired again, and Kim just announced that this year will be her last full year on the tour, WTA really needs somebody to step up big time.

    I watched Wozniacki's matches more often in this tournament, OMG. The more I watch, the more I come to dislike her game. She's a female version of Nadal, chases the balls everywhere like a dog, but with much less skills/weapons. I still want her to get a major title just to shut up all the haters that hate her just because she got to #1 without GS title. Hopefully she can improve her game in the future, she's still young after all.

    Now I can sleep in normal hours again after 2 weeks of lackluster sleep
