Was that not the best Wimbledon final you've ever seen? Unbelievable stuff.
I'm a Federer fan but if someone had to beat him I couldn't think of a more deserving player than Nadal. He was magnificent today and showed real balls to overcome the set back of failing to convert those match points in the tie break.
And Roger showed all the hallmarks of a true champion: the gutsy comeback from 2 sets down, and the magnanimous comments at the end.
A wonderful and fitting final for what's been a fortnight of superb tennis.
