‘Game, Set, Match, Championship Nadal’


The five words - ‘Game, Set, Match, Championship Nadal’ said it all. Roger Federer’s (one of my favorite tennis players) was unsuccessful in his another attempt to conquer Roland Garros. On Sunday, Rafael Nadal showed why he is considered as the best tennis player in this era on clay. He decimated Roger in straight sets at 2008 French Open - 6-1, 6-3, 6-0. (Match Summary) I am glad that I didn’t wake up early in the morning to see this lopsided final!! It is the most one sided result in any men’s Grand Slam final since John McEnroe lost to Jimmy Connors in 1984 at Wimbeldon.

Rafa (as people lovingly call Nadal) was too quick, very sharp at the net and Federer couldn’t match the # 2 player in the world. I wonder if this is going to start the fall of Federer's rein at the top of the world's ranking. We will find out in few weeks at Wimbeldon. My best wishes are with Federer.
