Rafa fans know this forehand well
#1. You don’t like Roger…
But more specifically, you don’t like his fans. Why would you? They certainly don’t like you and your lefty Mallorcan. They say that Federer plays tennis how tennis should be played; with grace, a one handed backhand and a sub 100 square inch head sized racquet. They are quick to point out that Rafa plays tennis like a brut. He muscles the ball, stomps instead of glides, counter-punches, a pusher, a one trick pony. He’s winning because of his equipment; with strings that help produce so much spin it should be illegal. You don’t like Roger’s fans because they’re snobby fans that look down on you. Which is why…..
What a great 2 semifinals are awaiting us!
Nadal vs Djokovic
Rafa has been absolutely dominating the clay court season, besides his loss in Monte Carlo against Novak Djokovic, after having won there eight consecutive times before! He will be on fire and ready to play Novak for a spot in the RG finals. But at the same he has a lot of respect for how Novak has been playing. I predict it will be a brutally long match with long exhausting rallies and great points!
Tsonga vs Ferrer
This is the first French Open semifinal for both of these players and one of them will go through to the finals. Tsonga
, who hasn’t lost a set yet (even when playing Roger!), is definitely on a roll! His on court performance has impressed me a lot and I am looking forward to seeing him play today. And how many sets has David
lost so far? Take a guess. Correct…none! They both seem to have conserved a lot of energy out there and this will be another great match to look forward to!
Enjoy this day of great Tennis!
The sun is out…or should I say, it is not raining today but is partly cloudy!
Anyway, it is a great day for tennis and a great day for the spectators to finally see some matches in a row!
Maria Sharapova is on Court Philippe Chatrier right now playing Jie Zheng.
A great schedule today for the spectators with access to centre court. They will get to see Nadal vs Fognini and Djokovic vs Dimitrov later on.
High level tennis all day!
