    FED came in in the wrong time (shallow approaching shorts) and got passed three times, if I remember right.

    After a crosscourt rally with Nadal's backhand, Fed hits a blistering FH DTL. For the break.

    Federer testing Nadal with the angles more: 2 down-the-line backhands and a really wide forehand...Federer breaks back! 2-2.

    Roger wins his service game to love...no problems. Fed 3-2 now in the third. Can we go ahead and say bye bye Nadal?

    And a few unforced errors off Nadal's racquet gives the hold to Fed.

    I think it is going to the decisive 3rd set tiebreaker.

    This is another classic. If only these two played more often. This is next-level tennis

    Like most people, I'm not able to see this. But I just have to say that each player is showing what makes them great from a mental perspective. Nadal gets stomped the first set, but doesn't let it sink him. And Federer shows why he's Federer with the break back to make it 2-2 in the third. No player I've ever seen has had Federer's ability to instantly change the momentum at the most important times.

    See-saw tennis....Nadal back at 3-3 with a huge smash at the net....
    BTW, what kind of a court-surface are they on? Anyone know?
