Federer back on track
Wow, what a great week of tennis in Monte Carlo. Nadal may have defended his title but for me there was only one winner this week: Federer.
Roger has got his mojo back. Against Nalbandian, Djokovic, and Nadal he proved that in terms of confidence and fitness he's almost back to his superhuman best.
And in the final yesterday he showed again that he is more than capable of beating Nadal on clay - Can't believe he let the second set slip through his fingers - and he defended his points into the bargain.
Didn't see enough of the match to see if Drucker was on the money (he usually is) with his analysis of what Higueras will bring to Federer, but it's a great piece on how slice is the key to beating Rafa on clay.
