I am totaly Rafa fan.. but before the match started i had a feeling that Rafa might loose if he played bad on his own serve.. well that came true.. Anyone who watched the match yesterday might agree.. no doubt Novak played his best tennis yesterday like he has been doing this whole season but yesterday Rafa clearly contributed to his win.. there were really great winners from either side ( Novak more while holding his serve)Rafa spoiled the match in first set itself when he was serving in the 10th game 4 games to 5.. In that game Rafa did not serve well and and made easy errors which he hardly does.. that game Novak did not do anything special.. Same thing happened in the fourth set.. Nadal could have beaten Novak if had not done this two mistakes which proved out to be cake on a plate to Novak.. anyways congrats to Novak for winning the title..it depends now whether he will be consistent now or not cause he will be now have a tough draw as he replaces Rafa's position.. Rafa fans not to woory.. the lion will roar again nad this time he wont contibute to his win... Rafa will be back at his best..
Just like the reign of Federer was ended by Rafa, He too start getting used to playing a second feedle to new no. 1 Novak. Such was the domination of Novak Djokovic over Nadal that he could not even give him some respectable fight. Nadal should thank god & Federer for winning this years French Open. This was probably the last Grand slam for Rafa as it would be even more difficult to beat Novak now. 5 out of 5 matches win over Nadal by Novak proves that point. True, the time for Novak has come and for rafa, its virtually over.

Also Novak should THANKS Tsonga, bcoz of Tsonga Novak was in Final. Had Roger avoided few silly errors in the 3rd set of QF with Tsonga, Roger could have easily thrashed Novak in the SF and could have done the same in the Final. So Nadal should Thank Roger for French Open and Novak should Thank Tsonga for Wimbledon.

Good luck for the manacor from mallorca. Its is soon going to be hard court season and the court couldnt have been named better for Rafa. He has a huge 2000 points to defend at the US open. Hope rafa lands a lucky draw like wimbledon 2010 and Usopen 2010. Vamos rafa...
