I wouldn't be surprised if Nadal comes back and beats Murray - just like he did numerous other times with other players when he's down a break or a set. Fed's going to be tough to beat. His "bad" year includes semi's in Australia, and making it to 3 Slam Finals. Amazing! The guy just showed he is somewhat human this year by losing a few more matches than normal.

It would have been great to see Djokovic in the finals, but I think he's getting better and better and had a bad day yesterday. Look for an excellent performance in Australia '09 from Nole.

Hey now, maybe the Brits can win themselves a Grand Slam Final. Been a while. Congrats, Murray, tomorrow should be fun.

Boo.

I wanted Nadal. I wanted more than anything to see Nadal beat Federer again in the final.

I don't want either of these guys to win in the final.

Same here.

I was afraid that there was too much hype over Nadal, and he wouldn't deliver.

Congrats Serena! What a championship!


and not to take away from a tough competitor, but I think Jankovic needs to play more and yap far less and be more a more gracious runner up.

Let's go Andy Murray! You can do it!

(Actually you have no chance, but good luck anyway!)

Deserves? Why does he deserve it?

I want what's best for tennis, and what's best for tennis is competition. That's why we need Nadal to elevate his hard court game to the quality of his clay court and grass court game so he can a constant presence in grand slam finals for years to come, that's why we Djokovic to improve his mental game because he has tremendous upside. That's why Roddick's career has been such a disappointment.

When Bjorg was dominating, he had Connors and McEnroe among others. Connors won eight grand slams and McEnroe won seven. That's a combined 15 slams.

Nadal has the potential to be an all-time great. We just need one or two more guys to step up and win multiple slams and create competition.

Tennis has been BORING for the past few years because of Federer's dominance.

I totally understand your feelings towards Federer's lack of competition. The unfortunate thing is that he may not be on tour after this year or next year. Then it will be Nadal and an average field. My hope is that he wins this slam and retires. I fear for the sport though. Men's and women's tennis can't afford to keep having these players get everyone's attention and then disappear.

Lack of competition? Doesn't Federer have to compete with the best tennis players the entire rest of the world can produce? There's tons of competition, he's just so good he makes it look like there isn't

I understand how seeing him in almost every final can be boring for some, but I see it as a great opportunity to witness one of the best tennis players in history do his magic.

Yes.

Hopefully Murray can deliver against Federer too.
