It’s been a couple of days since I’ve last posted. And quite a few important events have happened.
Let’s start with David. His bid for the semi-final spot ended with Nole defeating him 6-4, 7-6, 6-1. David really fought hard in the first two sets. But then in the third set Nole showed all the spectators watching this match why he indeed is number one in the world right now. Tonight Nole faces off against last years finalist Murray.
Rafa and Roger: the Rivalry. The two players faced off in the semi final. In my opinion Roger is the best tennis player who has ever lived. He is just simply an incredibly talented player! But Rafa defeated him in four sets 6-7, 6-2, 7-6, 6-4. Roger starter off strong. But as the match grew longer, Rafa was able to capitalize on the fact that Roger’s first serve percentage was low. Rafa’s forehands also became stronger, and in the end Rafa prevailed.
Congrats Rafa! It’s his second time as a finalist for Australian Open. Not only that, but he has now been a finalist in the past four grand-slams. NOT an easy achievement by any means. He’ll wait face for the winner of the Murray/Nole semifinal.
I’m sorry I wasn’t able to update the blog earlier about these happenings. Tell ya what, let me make it up to you. That is if you love watching anything with Ferru in it. 🙂
