Well, that certainly wasn’t one of the prettier matches Roger has played in despite Roddick’s very strong performance and the sheer length of the match (particularly set 5). I still didn’t think it had the same drama as last year’s final. But it would’ve been impossible to repeat that sort of drama from that match. So this year was a good match. A better match than anyone had anticipated. And I’m glad that Roger was made to work for his 15th title.
I also want to say I have huge amount of respect for Roddick right now. I admit he wasn’t my favorite player but he’s earned a lot of my respect during this tournament. My heart just broke for him after coming *this* close to winning it. That’s definitely a heartbreaker. But I hope to see Andy around for a while yet. Keep it up, Andy =)
Love this video here that the ATP did. And Roger looks so cuuute as a little kid!
OH! And let’s not forget a CANADIAN guy won something in tennis this weekend. Lost in the Roger drama was the men’s doubels final on Saturday which pitted the creepy Bryan twins against the way cooler Canadian Daniel Nestor and Serbian Nenad Zimonjic. So big congrats to Danial and Nenad for winning =) I liked Nenad’s little scream when he served up an ace after dumping the ball in the net repeatedly during the last game. Way to go guys!
