    It wasn't really a hard smash, dropping close to the net, on the other hand I could watch Sampras smash those all day.

    Nadal did another slam smash today vs Gremelmayr. This one bounced well over the fence. :-D

    To be honest, it really doesn't matter how you finish the point. 1 point is 1 point.

    ^ Do you really have to do this "my daddy is stronger and bigger than your daddy so there" thing when discussing a point made by Nadal?

    It's a great smash. End of discussion.

    Wow, that was just flat out SICK! Now if Gasquet would toughen up a bit he could do some great things.

    ive actually seen nadal hit that jumping overhead a couple times i think. no sampras sure, but it stil oozes talent. that shot is very very hard to time right. unreal that pete could do it consistently with an 85 in racket.

    Not like he actually hit an overhead though, he bottled one earlier in the match however.

    Gasquet will be the greatest when he eventually grows up

    chela's been a constant top 40 for the last 5 years and a threat on clay to anyone (except nadal, of course). so pay him some respect.
    on topic, how can you dont admire nadal's passion?? great smash.
