Rafael Nadal has again defeated the federer express in tough four sets match by 6-7(5), 6-2, 7-6(5) and 6-4 in 3 hours 39 minutes.Nadal again shown his power and physical ability and always eagerly hit the ball all over the place..The top spin swing from him able to make Federer totally surrender..Even on the difficult angle and got hard ball from Federer he still able to return nicely to the right corner or far from Federer..this condition different with Federer, he had made too many unforced error in this match, he has total 63 unforce errors compare with Nadal who only has 34 times unforced errors.. This becomes the 18th win out of 27 clash between him and Federer..He used to win Australian open in 2009 after defeated Federer in the final What do you think with Nadal performance against Federer?

The Federer Express has definitely slowed. I like Fed as he is a gentleman on the court and does not show his anger or glee when he has won. He is a graceful winner and loser. Still, his days are over as Rafa just has gained enormous momentum. I can't wait for this game tomorrow. Viva Rafa!!

It was another classic dished out by two of game's greats, Nadal and Federer. Nadal has great ability to run down balls, retrieve balls from seemingly impossible situation and hit winners from them. This puts lot of pressure on Federer's strokes and he is forced to try that much harder and ends up committing unforced errors. Also Nadal seems to have psychological advantage against Federer and thus was able to use all his experience executed plans perfectly and won great match. In this form, Nadal would be guy to beat in the finals.
