Change of Gaurd

Just finished watching the best Federer - Nadal final ever. Still can't believe it. The best possible description of it was given by the Commentator

" They don't bring out just the best in each other anymore, they bring out the Superhuman"

How true....

I agree totally rivetting performance..And man what a match..each point was played with such gusto and style that you gaped at the level of tennis

I loved the match, and your description. But I have one objection to almost everyone who has commented on this match. "Change of guard" is hardly the way to put it. The fifth set was won by a whisker. Had Federer won it, our titles would read "Federer is king, he overcame everything Nadal threw at him."

If anything, I for once wish tennis matches had a tie.

Well in a sense you are right. But its just that Federer still doesn't have a French Open and Nadal in the last three seasons was pretty close to winning the Wimbledon crown. So I think he will overtake Federer soon if he can adjust to the hard court as well.
