Clay Court tennis at its very best

This week is the second and concluding week of the Clay court season with the French Open Championships happening at Roland Garros. Normally, I don't watch too much clay court tennis beacause its unexciting with all unknown and unheard players battling it out from the baseline. I like to watch serve and volley kinda tennis. But, this week changed that.

I watched the Quarters between Mariano Puerta and Canas. Canas is a very good player from Argentina and traditionally, all players from there are great Clay courters. The match lasted five wonderful sets and Puerta hit some amazing forehand winners and literally hit Canas out of the court in the final set. Too good

Just finished watching what was dubbed as the match of the tournament which was between Federer and Nadal. It was a good game but somehow, Federer gave me the impression that he was not at his best. He did not attack Nadal's serve too much and generally was very defensive. Am not taking any credit from Nadal. He did just the opposite, played very aggresively and won.
He truly deserved the win.

Looking forward to the final now
