    It took all morning (and part of the day) but after last year's final, this is one I wasn't going to miss. An amazing, amazing display by both men. Both are true champions, and true gentlemen. One of the best sporting events that I have ever seen.

    Ahh... I was thinking the same thing! I'm not usually one for watching tennis, but I couldn't turn the channel! I watched the very beginning the match, when it started around 10 am, then left the house and came back to find it still going on. I think it was the 4th set when I turned it back on... I couldn't believe the last set of that match, it was simply amazing. I definitely was rooting for Federer because it would've been record breaking, but Nadal was amazing!

    Broke my heart. Really wanted Federer to win. Props to Rafa.

    However, J-Mac pissed me off with talk of "changing of the guard". Federer is still the #1 player in the world.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    Agree-great tennis match that normally would have been turned but kept the interest due to extraordinary talent by both.
    Federer is still number #1

    Studies show the next move for Ken is to find a wife:

    2. He's financially secure
    Studies show that men who own a home are more marriage-ready. A man who is generally financially stable, and has his ducks in a row, feels marriage is a practical next step for him.

    Never thought I'd see a match better than Borg/McEnroe but this one was -after all the brilliant winners Roger hit how did he net that easy forehand ?
