Man, I am totally wrung out! Started this morning, waited out the first rain delay, went to the gym during the second rain delay, then watched it to the end at the gym. Man! What a match!

They are both just superb... it all came down to one point, and that's mostly luck... I'm glad for Rafa, though.

Did I watch it? Well I tried!!

Saw up until the rain delay in the final set. Then our local affiliate started showing the Cardinals game, nothing wrong with that

When they came back after the rain stopped we had a split screen. Top left hand side Cards/Cubs. Bottom right hand side Federer/Nadal. You could hardly see the ball and their was no sound on the tennis but yeah I watched it.

Good to see Nadal win.

Were there any FIGHTS? Crosschecking? Pucks in the stands? Don Cherry? Then, no, I didn't watch it.

Well since it was tennis TECH there might have been some cross-dressing...I bet there was some puking in the stands since it was such a long match and all that alcohol...OH!...puck I did see some Don Cherry warm-up gear in the stands ....you shoulda watched!
