For Fed, so long clay, hello grass!
Well, it didn't turn out the way Fed fans would prefer. However, I don't think hardly anyone actually thought he would win the tournament here, so which is better, losing to Djokovic or losing to Nadal? For me I would have to say losing to Djokovic. There have been too many painful losses in the final to Nadal at RG already. And he has been saying the whole two weeks that he hasn't really found his game yet here. Why not let the other guys battle for history and he can rest for a couple more days before moving on to grass. In the meantime during this tournament he broke yet another record for most wins in majors, and extended his quarterfinal streak. Not bad for a guy pushing 31! I'm not feeling overly depressed over this one.
Here is a transcript of what he had to say after the match. Always interesting to hear his perspective.
