Ive watched the final of nadal v fed at wimbledon 20 times now infact im doing it at the mo. Ive always believed that fed lost it in the first couple of sets. I think my love for feds game has biassed me towards the brute strength of nedals. Watching again i still cant love nedal but his forehand is exceptional if it was feds id be laughing all the way.
There is another blog 'i hate nadal' but what i am asking is does his brute strength and undoubted top spin forehand mask his greatness or are we just so in love with the beauty of the game??
I see players like murray (of which you know im a fan by now) playing the all court game ala mac and sampras and are we succured into old ideals or is it that the best player in the world is so good at playing baseline game? we got to be honest the next best players in the world djok fed and murray dont play that game??
coming back to wimbledon I kept saying brilliant federer and not nadal, why? I see the lefty unreturnable spin and they so good. What is up with me or am i just jealous of all the girls cheering for him.
I think the blog about the top 4 is a real good one its so diff this year with nadals unanswerable points tally, fed without his early season fever, noles all over the place and murray's even better fitness.
What you think folks and can, cos most of you US, are there any players to compete, Roddick,coach change or not is he gonna have trouble with tsonga and simon dont you think???
