I'm so happy for Fed and truly feel that he deserved to win. I was also happy to see a little drizzle to soften things up and maybe slow down the game a bit. I think Fed would have won today even if the conditions had stayed hot and dry, but I believe they were optimal for his game today. Mac said that the balls were really lively - Were they the same balls typically used at the French? Thanks -

You always use light ball on clay, heavy ball on grass, indoor, and hardcourt. This has been the practice for years.
