I did not have a chance to see a match, but based on information it was incredible. Today Federer deserved to win and no excuses for Djokovic. Regarding PS3 he will still hold on it, since season is not over and Djokovic can start a new wining streak.
I do expect for Nadal to win since Federer never had a key for Nadal's backhand. This year Nadal was served perfect draw and he was able to build his game and confidence that was in turnmoil.
goes down this weekend!
The match wasn't really that good. The only sustained period when both were playing well was the last few games of Set 3. Other than that, when one was UP, the other was DOWN (or just ... flat).
I'm a Federer fan. I am pleased he won. (He's going to have to play significantly better to beat Nadal.) Even though I'm a Fed fan, I'd rather have seen Djoker's streak end with him playing as solidly as he has the last few months. But....
Just a couple observations... I think Fed could have converted more break point chances for sure. But, overall I think he played pretty solid. His 18 aces were spectacular as was his serving overall.
I think the first set was pivotal when Fed pulled out the tie-breaker. Had Djokovic won that, it could have been a different outcome to the match. And Djokovic really seemed to get frazzled when the referee warned him about taking too much time before serving during the first set. The commentators were also saying that the French crowd seemed to be pulling for Fed a little more than Nole and that may have played a factor.
