Nadal will now be trailed in the ATP rankings by Djokovic, who returns to second after defeating five-time winner Federer in their semi-final. Nadal now stands an impressive 9-2 in Grand Slam finals and becomes the first lefthander to win the New York title since John McEnroe in 1984.

I only appreciated tennis when I started to play it and saw how difficult it was. Anyone whos played it even a little bit can only stand in awe at the ability required to play at the level these players do.

So so.. when nadal won to Federer in wimbledon 2008 being gentleman between them, after to play one of the best tennis match of the history?

They are examples of fairplay between winners with knightly virtues!
For you!

Being an argentine myself, I started to love tennis watching Guillermo Coria, alias "el mago" ("the wizard"). He was really a wizard and moved like a ghost on claw. Too bad he could never overcome that lost Roland Garros finale to personal rival Gastón Gaudio

Right now my favorites are Nadal, Djokovic and Federer. They all have their virtues and distinctive styles, and sometimes they can score some amazing points. That curveball scored by Nadal in the last game was impressive!. I'm still waiting for Del Potro's return after his wrist surgery.
