|Rafael Nadal laments a miss shot|
It was the first time in his career that Nadal had reached the ATP MASTERS Final (London) & his chance were good beforehand after majestically defeating Andy Murray in the semi-finals. However, the effort & the exhaustive performance took its toll on Nadal 24 hours later as he lacked spring, reflexes & freshness in his game.
The 1st set saw Federer break Nadal mid-way through with powerful serving & precision shots that tested the reflexes of the Spaniard. But Nadal is a natural born fighter & took his chance when Federer loosed up just enough to give Nadal a glimpse of hope to which he broke Federer & equalled things taking the 2ºset. The 3º set was champagne Tennis from Federer who broke Nadal early & never looked back.
|Roger Federer wins ATP Masters 2010.|
Roger Federer won with an almost perfect performance that overwhelmed a tired Nadal & showed why he is considered the "Greatest Tennis player in History" to notch up his 5th Masters & finish off the year on the highest note. Nadal will be relatively pleased to have reached the final & no doubt we all will be seeing him back next year once again attempting to win the title that keeps alluding him to date. Congratulations to both! Tweet
