I can see Nadal breadsticking guys like Almagro, Verdasco and Nieminen, but Roger Federer? Wow.
The commentators were saying over that first set, or the beginning at least, how R-Fed was moving around to hit his forehand, but I don't think he stuck to that plan. Granted, a lot of it was Nadal. I promise I've been saying this for years: Why doesn't Roger slice his backhand more?
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.
