Do you believe that Nadal and Djokovic ran a combined 30 or so miles in last weeks final. I find that incredible. What other sport is this physically demanding? A marathon? I don't think so. Back and forth sprints for 15 miles a piece (I believe Nadal ran 16 and Djok 14 give or take) while hitting a ball traveling at 70mph and kicking off the court.
Last week tennis gained a lot of respect from non-tennis fans.
What other sports compare to a 5 set 6 hour match?
I blogged on this and would love to get your thoughts http://firstserveace.com/blogger.htm
