Starting with the Serena/Halep match at 8 a.m. first set was fairly competitive but Madame S. had her way with a dominating 2nd set (bagel no less)
so I was a little disappointed in Halep's play, finals are always better with a see-saw battle, then we switch to Switzerland where Federer (the master) clearly showed his tennis brilliance in all aspects of the game, granted he had a less than close (ranking wise) competitor in David Goffin but as a long time fan of Roger's he was a 'treat to watch'
and the ceremony its self was 'all class' with each player David and Roger giving out medals to the ball kids, nice touch!
Now we go to Spain for the afternoon tilt, this was the 'marathon of all marathons' and if other posters saw the match you know what I'm talking about, albeit Andy Murray was a bit of a 'Drama Queen'
most of the match with all his aches and pains
, but the two guys, Robredo and Andy 'fought like two alleycats' most of the match (Andy won the first set 6-3 ) then ended with two tie-breakers, thrilling and compelling stuff, thanks guys and gals for a wonderful day of tennis!
