Fist Pumping Nadal Stuns Federer to gain Final

Posted by Dinky Mind on Saturday, June 04, 2005 in






R. Nadal def. R. Federer: 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.





In a remarkable and inspiring birthday party, Rafael Nadal ran over top ranked Roger Federer in the semi-finals and fist pumped his way into the final against Mariano Puerta.

"It's a dream for me that I could beat the No. 1 in tennis, but also the number one person," said Nadal.

Federer has moments in the match when he was dominating with his forehand, but in the last two sets, consistently dumped it into the net when trying to go inside out or down the line. The four-time Grand Slam champion kept his first serve percentage up high, but never dominated with it, as the quick Nadal managed to get balls back in play and win numerous points with his legs.

Moreover, Nadal's lefty spin confounded him, as the Swiss was unable to employ the normal patterns that uses against right-handers.

Federer's goal of winning the only Grand Slam title that has eluded him was shattered.

"My disappointment is obvious," Federer said. "I was in the final four and with a chance to win. I was trying my best and didn't always play that well. I know I can beat him on any surface. It's a pity he beat me here. But it's tough to impose yourself in five sets on clay and especially when he's a lefty and hits with so much spin. I didn't think he played much better than me. I had the keys to beat him if I played my best. I played poorly to finish and he was consistent and solid."





After winning, the Spaniard got off the ground with clay caked on his back and scissor-kicked into the air.

"If I win this tournament it'll be a dream come true," said Nadal.
And you will win it!!!

Go Nadal, go!!!

Cheerio =)

~Khattak: I have just watched the first set of today's final. (6-6)Don't know who won. I haven't even ipened rolandgarros.com. I want to see the highlights tomorrow. Why, o why I missed today's match? (Well, had to go somewhere)

~Faizee: Khair Mubarkaaan

~H.: I'm glad Henin-Hardenne won. I hate Mary Pierce. I don't why she is always so tensed? But look at the score 6-1, 6-1. Great defeat for Pierce!

sorry for off-topic reply. I just noticed few things that I am sure Hina shd have done but as she's busy, I guess you can fix your template yourself.
Firstly, you dont have to force your users to keep changing encoding settings if you just put this line between and

Firefox, IE, Safari and just about every browser would understand it's UTF-8 compliant template.
Secondly, whenever you write something in urdu, just keep it simple like and write the rest of inline styles in your stylesheet above in the not to mention adding
font-family:'Nafees Web Naskh', Arial, Tahoma, sans-serif;
Tahoma does get good results but those who already have popular urdu fonts installed should be able to read better typography than what Tahoma has to offer. Happy blogging

I'll be routing for Maria Sharapova in Wimbledon but then I am for Justine Henin as well. Who I NEVER favor are the Williams sisters. Bohot jeet liay bhai - ab kissi aur ko bhee chance dein!!!
