Fed - Ex lost the Wimbledon final...

I must admit... I am a Federer fan. The legend mantle of Sampras was passed to him... Mr. Fed-Ex.

Federer.. chasing his 6th consecutive Wimbledon title... his 13th Grand Slam title. Nadal no different... he will be the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1980 to win both the French Open and Wimbledon in the same year. Records will be broken no matter who wins this final.

I wish I had watched the match... they said it is one of the best; if not THE best final in history of Wimbledon. It lasted nearly 5 hours... Federer vs Nadal... it always provide fire. But it was not Federer's day. Nadal won 6-4, 6-4, 6-7, 6-7, 9-7. Look at the score... That is truely a great match.

Felt sorry for Federer... but hey... he will be stronger. He will break records. We will going to see the sort of rivalry like McEnroe-Borg, Becker-Edberg and Agassi-Sampras. Tennis is indeed going to be colorful with these two guys around.
