Federer saved 3 championship points. It was amazing how he saved the 2nd one. One of the best Backhands winner ever imo.

The only thing I hated about that match was that Federer didn't win. It was awesome match though.

Does anyone think that soem courts need to speed up a little. The hardcourts today are really slow, and benefits defensive players. IMO, Hard courts should be fast, and clay should be the slow one.

Nadal somehow reaching that brilliant Federer forehand and hitting an all time great passing shot to set up a championship point is still one of the best moments I've seen in Tennis.

BTW I was definitely rooting for Nadal then. Federer's dominance of Wimbledon, US Open and to a lesser degree the Aussie Open really had me rooting against him more often than not. I always respected him as the all time best but I can't tell you how often I'd be ecstatic when Safin, Gasquet or Nadal beat him and ended his eternal dominance of the game.

All the courts are slowing, down they're not going to then make it fast again snytime soon. Although I do wish it was faster.

It's getting a bit stupid now though. It's like they are trying to promote defensive tennis. Offensive players like Tsonga are not going to benefit at all from courts slowing down. Players like Murray are going to benefit loads. I bet if the Hard courts were as fast as they were 10 years a go, Murray wouldn't have won the US Open.

Attacking players aren't going to get a break unless it rains at Wimbledon during the 2nd week.

In other news, Del Potro is going to play in the Davis Cup against the docters orders. I admire his heart, but he shouldn't be playing because it's too risky. He needs to let his wrist heal or he could regret it

They need to make the grass courts faster first. It is almost as slow as the hard courts. Ridiculous.

What puzzle me is why they are xslowing t down in the first place, why would anyone want to watch slow boring rallies?

The main problem with grass is that it wears down, so in the 2nd week it's almost like clay. But i agree that it's too slow.

Clay should be slow. Grass should be fast, and hard shout be in between. Therefore, certain styles don't benefit more than others.

Today, all the courts are slow, which benefits defensive players.
