MADRID FINALS PICTORIAL: NADAL BEATS FEDERER IN MADRID

You ever feel like you’re dreaming and then wake up and realize it wasn’t actually a dream. I imagine that that’s how it felt when Rafael Nadal beat Roger Federer and broke the Agassi record of 17 titles on clay and actually getting 18.

Nadal made history  winning his 18th Masters title by beating number 1 in the world Roger Federer in straight sets 6-4, 7-5.

I read Lisa’s blog entry and she was elated with Rafa’s victory. Ofcourse, if I were a big a fan as she is of Rafa then I would be over the moon with this double victory. Setting a record that you know won’t be broken for the next few decades. I can’t imagine how that feels. Nor can I imagine to get one over my archnemesis.

The Madrid Open is a good test for Roland Garros next week I reckon and Rafael Nadal proved that he is once more a favorite for the Roland Garros title.

Did you know that, if Rafael Nadal wins at Roland Garros, Roger Federer will have to reach the semifinals to hold on to the No. 1 ranking

For now these photos I think will do fine.

A PICTURE IS A 1000 WORDS: ROGER FEDERER VS DAVID FERRER SEMIS PICTORIAL

It’s true what they say: A picture is a 1000 words. And with our photographer Ralf Reinecke still running around in Madrid to send us pics, I am left wondering how many words I won’t have to write. Ralf possesses the uncanny talent to capture world’s finest at their best!

Roger Federer beat David Ferrer 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 to set up the dream finale against archnemesis Rafael Nadal.

Now on with the pics, this is after all a pictorial.

Oh and please do check out Lisa’s Fan Watch on Rafael Nadal.
