    Well... almost.

    Anyone see before the guys stepped out onto court when they were still inside the building walking up the stairs? Nadal gets to the top first, but then instead of moving out of the way for Roger, he starts doing his little boxing dance blocking the way up, almost knocking Roger right down the stairs. I found it rather humorous, I'm sure some of you though will explode into your Nadal's behavior rants.

    I saw Federer waiting a couple of steps below the top waiting for Nadal to finish. Then they moved onto the court. I guess my version of ESPN was not as exciting as others's. LOL I must e-mail them and complain.

    Nadal had way too much energy for his own good at the beginning. After the coin flip, he nearly fell flat on his face after tripping on his way back to the baseline. Took out a big divot on clay.

    after you sir

    But I did notice that twice during the game and once after, Nadal stepped back and let fed go in friont of him. so maybe he had felt a bit bad about earlier!
