Or, is Nadal the Shawn Johnson of men's tennis? Watching her is like watching Rafael. She bounces around before the exercise like Nadal at the net, and then makes powerful moves look too damn easy with her powerful lower body. Both also don't get too rattled, either, and they seem generally happy to be out there. By the way, did anyone else catch her doing those handstand warmups? It was almost as if she was seeing what it would take to throw off her balance. Amazing.

good call; agreed.

Except, I think She may smile while performing a bit more:)

Well, if Nadal got points for smiling, he might.

Does that make Federer the Nastia Leukin of men's tennis?

I could see the parallels being drawn. Beautiful "game"

I like Shawn Johnson, though, there's something intriguing about her (she's really cute, too!)

I was thinking that when I wrote it. Her composure is very similar to Federer, I have to say.

Shawn is to Nadal as Nastia is to Federer. a pocket rocket vs elegance

nastia is prettier

nastia is more graceful, sure, but I prefer shorter girls (just my opinion)
I can see people think that nastia is cuter but i like johnson

Whoa, I looked it up, and Shawn is 4'9! Doesn't seem to matter much, though. She's crazy good and cute too. Lots of my friends hate watching men's gymnastics... I wonder why... lol

But yeah, agreed. Johnson's like Nadal and Nastia's like Fed. Nastia has the elegance and grace, and Johnson is the energetic, pumped up younger one.

Did anyone else hear the comment she made about herself? She said she is a dare devil with a smile. Great comment. I think with more exposure this girl will put gymnastics on the map in the U.S.. Kind of good, because this stuff is truly incredible and deserves recognition.

Shawn Johnson is cute. Especially when she does that little bob up and down thing after she does a trick or routine.
