1-6, 6-1, 6-4, 7-6
Wow here comes Nadal again……
Rafael Nadal……my new favorite since last year when he beat Federer in last year's French Open semi-final.
Yesterday with a 1-6, 6-1, 6-4, 7-6 victory over the Swiss star in the French Open final, the irrepressible Spaniard retained his title and became the first man to beat Federer in a Grand Slam final.
The match was Federer's first defeat in eight Grand Slam finals and his status as the world's best player is now under serious threat from Nadal.
Tennis is a non-contact sport but Nadal makes it feel like one. He has the presence of a clay court colossus, with biceps like cannonballs and a venomous look in his eye.
Well done Nadal, Cheers for You…….
