Watched the highlights of the game and with the exception of a couple of points, nothing really worth watching. Way too many unforced errors by Anderson meant that Rafa was not tested. The fact that Rafa didn’t face a single break point on his serve tells you everything you need to know. But I am not complaining as I am a Rafa fan. #16 is sweet and while it might have not been as epic a final as Rafa usually is involved in, the history books will show 16 major wins against his name. Phenomenal.
Roger and Rafa are true champions, not because they have won so much, or because they are probably the best two players the sport has seen, but because even when things looked bleak for them, when most people started to question if we had seen the last of these two gladiators, they never doubted themselves. Instead, they dug deep, worked harder and smarter, kept believing even when the rewards didn’t come, and here they are today. Champions once again. After that long period of poor performances, injuries etc, I never thought I would see either of them win another grand slam let alone 2 each.
