Not In Nadal's House Rog

Raphael Nadal has become the French Open Champion for the third year in a row. He beat Roger Federer in four sets 6-3 4-6 6-3 6-4.

The final itself did not disappoint with both players seeming to step it up time and time again in the face of their awesome opposition. This one came down to determination however, and Nadal was simply not going to lose this one. Clearly hurting from his loss to Federer on Clay a couple of weeks ago, Nadal came out with a 'Not in My House' jawline and a
racket set to 'revenge'.

Although Roger was a little bit unlucky at times, it was the soul destroying way that Rapha came back from two-three break points in the first two sets that broke Federers spirit. Nadal simply would not let go of the advantage and fought for every single point with gritty will power and unrelenting determination.

This was a very good result for the sport of Tennis. Not only has it cemented a fierce rivalry but it also prevented one person from dominating every event. Federer may win against anyone everywhere else without breaking a sweat but when it comes to facing Nadal on Clay - Forgeddaboudid...

That was quite true....Federer's years of dominance are no more.He will soon step down from the NO.1 position.This guy is weak when it comes show his heart..he's losing the psychological battle with Nadal.

I'm not sure I'd go that far. It's looking likely that he'll win at Wimbledon and he's plenty young enough to stay at the top for some time yet.

Federer will be around for years. He will never be overtaken by Nadal- the only way he will lose the top spot is when he retires. Nadal is a one surface player while Federer is master of all surfaces.
