I was really hoping for a different outcome. After an amazing 5+ hour semifinal match it will once again be Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in the finals of a Grand Slam event. But that’s not the big story here.
I turned on the t.v. this morning for my daughter to watch Mickey Mouse so I could throw in a load of laundry (Yes, I know. The life of a stay-at-home-mom is very glamourous). The t.v. was tuned to ESPN and in the final set of the Verdasco/Nadal match. I was on the edge of my seat hoping the underdog, Verdasco could pull off a dramatic upset.
In the end of course he wasn’t able to overcome, losing the tiebreaker with a double fault. But for anyone watching, it was a chance to see what great sports is all about. Two fierce competitors battling back and fourth until finally, when it couldn’t possibly go on any longer on of them breaks. Good stuff!
On a side note, how could I have left Verdasco off my list of hot tennis players???? Well, I’m officially adding him. He may have lost against Nadal, but don’t feel too sorry for Fernando. I’m sure his girl, Ana Ivanovic will help him recover.
