Well, I enjoy being right, even if the outcome wasn't what I was hoping for. Full credit to Nadal, who played an unbelievable, unrelenting match. He just never allowed Roger any room to breathe. That tiebreaker in the fourth set, though, was the stuff of legend.

I'll be interested to see how this plays in the American sports press, if indeed anyone bothers to notice since t'weren't no "Muricans involved, and the two guys don't hate each other, throw temper tantrums, or provide much fodder for tabloid gossip. Boring!

Best way to reinvigorate tennis for an American audience? In lieu of either a fifth-set tiebreak or continuing the match until someone wins by two, deadlocked matches will be decided by players fighting it out with their rackets in an octagonal cage!
