    When I first watched the match I told my wife - there is no chance Nadal and Marc Lopez can win against the 2 giants (Isner and Querry); more specifically Marc Lopez who is the shortest player of the 4.

    Man - I was wrong! Lopez was virtually amarked man from the get go but he killed the 2 with his superb net skills. Nadal also showed his excellent volley skills and on several occasion went mano y mano against Isner's heavy shots.

    It was one of the best doubles championships I have seen! Too bad - Isner and Querry came as runner up.

    Actually, I watched many of the early Quisner matches on site and was surprised that they made it to the final based on their early round play. Marco is fantastic at the net, better than the tall americans - I actually really wonder what would have happened if the Bryans stayed healthy this week.
