She'd trade a lot of it for another grand slam.

That was an epic match. Both players are great and deserving of respect. I just wish Nadal didn't get tired towards the end.

Managed to catch the last few points.

Wish I would have been able to see more.

Men's final was one of the best ever. That was all about the will and the heart. Seeing match enter the 5th set I really gave advantage to Rafa considering he had 1 more day of rest and a much less physical semi's than Novak. However, i am thrilled that Djoko found that last bit of strength in him and pull of an amazing win. I got tired just watching that - can't imagine how they felt after 6 hrs. of power hitting.

I watched a small part. It's a shame that I missed the final set.

I actually got bored with this match, and I think it had everything to do with Channel 7 commentary. If your in twitter land you gotta follow 'Not Bruce McAvaney' (more so the aussies in this thread) He's very funny.

I watched until 2-2 in the fourth set tiebreak, it was amazing but I just could not stay up for any longer.

Was a great final, but there are some nonsensical claims from commentators claiming it to be one of the best matches ever. Not sure about that. Nadal-Federer was a better Aus Open Final in my opinion, not to mention the Federer-Roddick, Nadal-Federer finals at Wimbledon and Federer-Del Potro at the US Open.

I wish I could have stayed awake for mens' final but my whole Saturday was a write-off after staying up to watch Djokovic/Murray match.

The lack of coverage on Pay TV = Fail. I think we usually get to see the semis and the final. Saw a bit of Roddick V Federer at Madison Square Garden, looked pretty cool. The other day.
