    Nadal with the stinging running FH down the line. He´s got his groove on. Where´s FedFan 2007 now? That troll.

    Nadal's hitting A LOT of short balls today, right on the service line, that won't work against Fed.

    And Lleyton holds.

    I tell you what won´t work. If Fed hits the forehand like he did with Moya he´ll be seeing an 0-6 record against Nadal on clay. He sprayed alot of balls with Moya. Both Nadal and Fed aren´t playing their best tennis this week. Difference being that Nadal only lost one set.

    what do you think Lleyton's wife will say tonight ?? "Lleyton, if you can push rafa to 3 sets on clay, you can take federer on grass and beat him" ??

    Probably, ¨Hey Lleyton honey, can I dye my hair to blonde again?¨

    Hewitt down 3-4 in the third set, with Nadal to serve.

    It´s looks like Nadal has figured out Hewitt´s groundstroke patterns. He´s taking Hewitt´s crosscourt backhand with a forehand down the line. Hewitt is a tough customer, he plays smart high perecentage tennis. Nadal is down 2 break points as I type.

    Well it was a closer match than I expected, but I'm glad that we get another Rafa/Roger final.
