Wow as a nadal fan I must say there was about 3 times I thought fed was gonna steamroll..... Nadal NEVER fails to impress!
 
at this point his fitness and lack of explosiveness are limiting him. he's not getting to the ball in time and making late contact. especially considering how big nadal's strokes are.
 
his forehand is really weak today, he's not getting behind the ball and not stepping in. his lame bunted backhand wouldnt even matter if he'd actually drive some forehands.

nadal is a beast. if his knee wasn't bothering him, i would definitely count fed as the underdog the longer the 5th set goes

I tried my best to stay AWAY from the PC, but I can't do it anymore.
Fantastic match, Nadal holds for 2-2 !!! :D

But Nadals knee is hurt and his serves are very slow. I think and I hope federer is able to break him because of these slow services

I recall someone offering to pay everyone on the board 100 dollars if Rafa won... this is probably the first time I considered that possible, starting in the 4th set...:mrgreen: :p

Federer's hanging in there.

Saves one BP. Nadal needs to take advantage of these opportunities otherwise Federer will take it away with a couple strikes.

Federer is playing flaky today. With the 5th set having no tie-breaker, this is Nadal's to lose. Because Federer isn't breaking Nadal's serve today.
