I'm a fan.
Nadal is unbelievable. I had trouble lying in bed watching this match for five hours while Superman was running all around the court playing Verdasco--who played the best tennis for a guy named Verdasco, that I never ever heard of. I truly felt whomever won this beats Roger. Verdasco is an Offensive Version of Nadal--where Nadal makes no errors--5 first set, 5 second set, and 4 third, Verdasco hit 91 winners in the total match. 91 winners... That's unbelievable.
Tennis has become a game of speed, power, and spin. Lots and Lots of spin. If you can touch it, you can dig it, and life goes on. Verdasco can cover so much court as to be ridiculous while hitting it flat. Lefties rule. Giles Simon is pretty fast and solid also.
It's funny that Roger at 27 is ancient.
The amount of spin on the ball, the type of ball which is slower, and the court surface slowing down favors the clay courters. And Nadal is the most amazing clay court ever.
I want to know what was Verdasco drinking....
I'm inspired. I think I want to change the way I play from my serve and volley style to a massive topspin style... but back in the day, when I was more mobile, I could stay on the court and just dig and move the guy around... hmm we'll see.
pattaya open is coming up--WTA style. I'll see how that goes.
