Not sure Fed Fans could of gone into the match thinking it would of been easy. Im also sure that no Fed Fan thought he had a good chance after the first set.
As a Fed Fan Im glad he figured out the combo. Middle to Nadal's backhand side, if he runs around it, go for the open court early. Establish control and take the point. Seemed to work. Watch the second two sets and you'll see the combo.
One thing that stood out. The look on Rafa's face at 5-0. I saw it on one others face: Andy Roddick at the Australian Open. Something may have snapped. Too early to see.
Nadal is still a beast. I hope they meet at the final again. Then we should all place a bet.
