Nadal played an awesome game, but come on people Federer had 52 unforced errors. All those base lines that were uncharacteristically wide. Either he's in a funk, which is what I think it is. Or he's the Bjorn Borg of our generation and is so great, he's just spent.
I think its more of A and not B here. Federer still hasn't won the French and the only person who can most likely beat Nadal on clay is Federer. Golf wishes it had a rivalry like this in Tennis. Then again Americans still won't watch, because of xenophobia and jinogism. Its got to be an American at number 1 for Americans to care. Yeah Americans all remember Borg because we had Connors and Mac, Americans cannot defend my train of thought here, its the truth. If Tiger Woods was Canadian, French or Swedish, we wouldn't give a shit.
Also, its not a black-white issue, as my dad thinks Tennis needs a Tiger Woods for Americans (he doesn't know about James Blake). If this were the case, everyone in the U.S. would be going nuts over Lewis Hamilton, but nobody cares because he's British. This is the sad truth its pathetic. Oh we all became Tour de France fans when Lance was winning, now who cares? Nobody. We fickle band of nationalists, only rooting if they were born in the U.S., yet we wonder why the world thinks we're so narrow minded. Its our culture I guess. Our culture of narrow minded thinking, the culture of Me and the culture of America first.
