I think Rafa played great but Federer was better than him. We tend to believe that long rallies will be advantage Rafa but today it was different. Roger's backhand and baseline winners were outstanding.

As a big Federer fan, I love Nadal’s resilience, tenacity and determination. Also great character. Not just the King of Clay but a great champion and one of the GOAT.
Dude Federer is going to be 38 in a few months.

I'm nearly 10 years younger than him and he still moves more fluid than me. wtf.

Beautiful champion Nadal you bring enjoyment to tennis for your fans win or loose we love Rafa Nadal πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
Nadal is wrong to say he played better in previous rounds its just that he was up against Roger who was really up for it.
GOAT for several reasons, beyond reality.
I dont understand why so manny was believing Nadal would win when Federer won last 5 of 6 mathes before???

As good as nadal is he is so humble. As people we get frustrated and emotionally unbalanced but this guy stays so humble and calm and never says anything out of anger. Such a fierce competitor and emotional on the court but outside of it he so balanced. Its amazing! I mean thats prolly why he is so tough as player day in and day out!! Another thing about nadal and novak roger is they stayed with Same girl and wife never gets in trouble. Perfect role models they don't let the fame get to their heads. Its amazing How discipline they r in life!! Get sad thinking bout tennis without these guys! Good match rafa! Play forever!!

Nadal played solid enough against 99% of the field, but Federer was in excellent form in this semifinal.

Rafa will lament that 30-40 backhand miss at 5-4 in the 4th, his BH let him down a bit in this one - Federer stepped up when it mattered most
