    Nadal stopped grunting briefly for one point. Now he has a break point chance!

    Don't think so; Leyton just loves Rafa's high bouncing balls.

    whata time to pull his 2nd ace

    Actually he doesn´t. He prefers hard flat ground strokes so he can use th pace against his opponents. His two handed backhand can handle the shot better than a one hander. But he was hitting alot of balls in the bottom of the net once they got too high on him.

    RAFA DOES IT!!!

    So, another Federer-Nadal final on clay (that will, probably, go to Nadal)... Hopefully, Federer will use it as practice for the one that really matters to him ;)

    NOOOOO :sad: Hewitt had game point in that 5-6 game, he shouldn't have lost that game at 5-5 on his serve either. He messed up at the end, with the pressure of ending Nadals streak.
    Good playing from both players though
    2-6 6-3 7-5 Nadal.

    Yeah, since he was prvoking me all day long with his garbage posts. You probably didn´t read his stuff. FYI: that post wasn´t directed at Fed fans in general, just him.

    Props to Hewitt for a great fight. Hewitt gets into these zones once in a while and it is scary but he came back to earth for the last 2 sets. I'm worried about tomorrow though since Nadal had to work awfully hard to win this one.

    I'm talking about Hewitt's forehand. Hewitt was wipping the crap out of those high balls... regardless of what he prefers :)

    I knew Nadal would have trouble... Too many matches, Hewitt playing well, Hewitt not being a great match-up for Nadal... damn what a match. Ranks up there with Nieminen, Davydenko and Federer as the guys having come closest to breaking "da streak". BTW Federer's chance of winning tomorrow is over 50% IMO.

    It was directed to him. A taste of his own medicine. I wasn´t saying that to you. So don´t take it personal. I just had to get him back.
