They are surely taking their time. 8 games in 50 minutes.

It is still a heck of a lot more efficient than Major League Baseball.

Yes, yes they are.

Another momentum shift as Nadal goes up a break to serve for the first set at 6-5. Djokovic had been serving so well but not in the last game and he's making some sloppy errors.

There must be a burning sensation in Nadal's arse. Man that arsepicking was crazy in that game.

It makes you think that it is Federer out there playing Nadal.

I don't like it either but Novak was so good last year that there was really no place for him to go but down. Sure, he is still very comfortably number one but he is winning significantly fewer titles this year. You also need to take into account just how good Nadal is, especially on clay. Assuming that they both make the final at the French Open I think we will see a much more competitive match.

A pity that Novak lost this one because it means that Nadal will be the second seed at the FO. I had hoped that Fed would be the second seed and that Djokovic and Nadal would draw each other in the semis. Now Fed will probably have to beat both to win the title. Not that it's very likely that he'd be able to beat either one of them on this surface, but you never know.

Earnest hope never truly dies...and I recall enough of my high school French to figure out the headlines without a translation.As with all of the Slams,I look forward to seeing the story titled,"Vandals Draw on Draw"

PARTY IN THE PANIC ROOM! Serena wins an undoubtedly clean #22

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world
