Rafael Nadal; House On Fire

I remember thinking last year that Rafael Nadal made THE statement in his five setter against Federer that he’s for real, he’s here to stay and that he’s got the stuff to catch up to and eclipse Roger. Today he made it real with an epic, gutsy, champion’s effort. It’s amazing the strides he’s made as a Spanish clay court specialist, scratching and clawing to become so effective on grass. Inspired me to think of what’s possible with desire, determination and perseverance. Is Rafael here to stay? Have we witnessed the beginning on one of the greatest rivalries in sports? I think so…Congrats Rafa! (Illustrated Sports #25)

  1. What an epic five set match by the two titans of tennis. My eyes were glued to this marathon for 4 hours and 48 minutes! This was the greatest and perhaps the best quality tennis I have ever witnessed in any tournament. Congrats to Nadal for taking down the great Federer.

  2. Nadal is a great player. I dont care if he is winning or losing matches. He is fighting on 100%, and its great there is such a “warior” in ATP at the moment!
