There's a changing of the guard happening right before our eyes.

Same way you beat anyone else - just hit winners past them, or make them make errors.

Very very few pros out there rely on tiring their opponents out.

Bye playing brave tennis. Federer didn't go to the net when he had the chances, and he had a lot of them. He looked like he didn't care, he looked tentative, which is understandable, but a player of his callibre make the unforced errors he did. If he would have won with this kind of tennis I would have felt sorry for Nadal.

Federer's backhand is getting worse by the tournament. Congratulations to Nadal and his fans.

One thing you kind of notice when they play is that...

Nadal knows he can beat Federer (which isn't surprising). I have never seen someone so confident against Federer.

Federer is still trying to figure out how to compete with Nadal while playing on the court.

Nadal is in Federer's head.

I mean if you keep on losing to one guy and today that guy squashes your GS dreams you have to go a little bit insane after awhile. I'm not saying Fed is going insane (I probably would have like break all my racquets in the locker room after the match) but you can certainly sense his frustration.

Nadal got tired many times and Roger capitalized on it many times.

The thing is that Roger is not willing to play the points out, he wants then to end quick like on grass.

Federer looks for one good angle to shift the point in his favor. As Carillo pointed out, don't give Nadal an angle. Federer's biggest strength plays into Nadals comfort, and Nadals biggest strength(cross-court forehand) is into Federer's weakness. Play that out of numerous sets and you get what we are seeing.

Wouldnt Nadal winning some hard court slams be required for that? :p I am not saying he cant, just that it hasnt happened yet.

nadal gets tired. he was tired at times today, just like federer. the match was lost b/c federer couldn't hit a backhand to save his life. he should have hit short slices to nadal's backhand instead of trying to come over it all day.

Fantastic point there buddy. I think it was great for Nadal today. He worked hard but Federer dug his own hole after the 1st set, making unfedererlike errors. I was disappointed.
When hardcourt season begins, draws will be loaded with a bunch of hardcourt talent. I wonder how Nadal will prove his skills on hardcourt this year. I mean he lost to Blake twice at 2005 uso and 2006 pacificlife. Can Roddick beat nadal on hardcourt? I'm all stoked about this hardcourt season. Hehe...
