Well he's about the most athletic player of all time so its not that surprising. That guy is in phenomenal shape.

Djokovic played great...his scrambling and defensive ability is maybe even better than Nadal's. Some of the balls he managed to get back into play (and well into play) were dead set clean winners against 99% of players.

That said, Murray played pretty badly and was so timid throughout the match. Not sure what the game plan was. It's disappointing he can't seem to mentally get himself through the pressure of playing a major final. You have to think he'll win one eventually, but who knows...he might not get that many more chances.

I know it's a few weeks too late but I just felt compelled to say that the Sveta-Schiavone match was probably the best Ladies tennis match I've ever watched, at least the third set. Talk about leaving everything on the court. Most entertaining match of the tourney IMO, M or F.

Very impressive. I'd say he has a better shot at Delpo in the final than Roddick, since Del Potro's still on the comeback trail and a tough match with Roddick will probably take more out of him than vice versa. I'd like to see Raonic win the title, but I kind of think this is where his run stops. Still, a win and a final back to back is a great result.

Sad for Delpo, but he's getting better and better. I predict a good year for him.

Shit. Great resilience from Milos, and fantastic championship shot from Roddick. Congrats on him for number 30.

Idk if any of you brohams know what Stick Tennis (this rad tennis game!!!11) is or play it but I just beat Ol' Bjorn Borg in an epic 5-setter. Motherfucker had 113 winners...and 7 unforced errors. FUCK. In contrast, I had 162/54. He broke me 12 times, I broke him 13 times. Wore my wrists/fingers out. Yeah okay /nerd.

Mate, I bloody well love that game! I'm so nerdy at that game, that I've got to the level that I can beat Borg and Sampras quite easily. It'll take awhile to get used to Sampras though, his serves are ridiculous. But you can get to the stage where you'll be serving two or three aces a game, which makes it much easier.
