The French Open just ended and Rafael Nadal once again denies Roger Federer the last jewel in his crown. I love watching these two play each other. Its the first real rivalry in years in mens tennis. It reminds me of Borg-McEnroe, Lendl-Conners. Nadal became the first player since my favorite tennis player Bjorn Borg won three straight French Opens.
"I am very happy," Nadal said during the trophy ceremony. "But I am really sad for Roger. He is a friend and I know he is a great champion, whether he wins or loses." Nadal shows what a class act he is by making a comment like this.
I am going to try and get some tickets to Wimbledon since I am so close. It may be the only chance I get to go see this event live in my life.
