The most-anticipated match of the tournament has gotten well under way and, as probably expected, Rafael Nadal has taken the first set from Novak Djokovic, 6-4.
Going into this match, Rafa was the clear favorite, but everyone expects Djoko to make him work a little. It'll be interesting to see how the rest of this plays out. Nadal's been SO dominant this tournament that he could just as easily steamroll now that he has a set in the bag. But if Djokovic holds tough mentally and physically, maybe he can get Rafa thinking a little.
An old friend of mine and I used to talk tennis for hours, whether it was our own games or what was happening in the pros. I've started Tennis Talk, Anyone? to, well, talk tennis with an even broader crowd! My name is Van Sias and I've been playing for 20 years now, and not only am I player, I'm a huge fan of the game as well: pro, amateur, you name it. I'll post links to news items related to the sport, and offer my own personal opinion, predictions and hopefully get some of yours as well.
