    Thanks for that Babette. Oh dear who is going to replace them. Murray v Del Potro won't be the same somehow

    You never know, we may have at least one (possibly even two) of these - IF WE'RE LUCKY!

    Good post, and remember that this isn't for bashing either player as the OP stated. Let's just be thankful that we've been around to witness in person one of the best rivalries ever in tennis and the sporting world.

    Thanks for the vid! Makes me quite a bit melancholical, as I fear it won't last for long anymore, with Fed being in decline, Rafa having all his physical troubles, and the new batch of young guns coming up.

    Exactly. People are going to miss them when they're gone. So happy I've been able to watch both of them play live. I'll cherish that memory for ever.

    You can expect to see either Fed or Nadal - or both - in slam finals for a good few years. Delpo & Murray will have to do exceptionally well to be in a slam final again.

    Thanks so much for that.

    I believe that, like James Bond ...
    ROGER AND RAFA WILL RETURN ... :D

    Thanks a million for that babette. For me, the Federer- Nadal rivalry is the greatest of all time. The Wimbledon final in 2008 was something extraordinary. Nike had it perfectly planned: two of the greatest players to play the game; Federer- five time champion, traditional one handed backhand, sophisticated and elegant, with an old fashioned look with the cardigan, this was his Empire. Nadal; strength, power, modern, with a sleevless top. Then of course there was the tennis. The greates match played of all tme.
