Safina put up a better fight than Federer did!!

and won more games in two sets than federer did in three, yet he is probably a GOAT and has been in a gazillion slam finals, yet we slam wta for a poor fnal showing. In hindsight, well done safina and well done ana.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Indeed. At least the women's final was a real match.

Uber-domination. I'm dead. Poor JesusFed and his FedTard fans will have to wait another year for their dream to have a chance of coming true. Nadal played so well, and really pushed Fed around the court and made him look like an amateur. I hope he bawls like a baby.

Vamos Rafa, 4 RG's in a row!

Re: Safina put up a better fight than Federer did!!

Actually the match way closer than the scoreline suggests. There are a lot of long rallies and nadal completely dominated him off the court. It is not that federer played badly, Nadal is just too good on clay.

Of course she did.

If the women's final had been this one-sided, everyone would be whining about how the women's game was in a crisis/on its death throes. Maybe not everyone - but at least Steffica Greles.
