Wimbledon Finals

Neither of the finals was a classic. Those only come about when the players are equally matched- Borg/McEnroe, Federer/ Nadal. Yesterday it was scary how dominant Djokovic was. Nadal is the greatest or second greatest player ever and Djokovic was making him look ordinary. Even clumsy. Djokovic's mastery faltered a bit in the third set and allowed Nadal back in, but then he raised his game and that was that. 

It's good for the sport when new names go up on the winners board. Also it's sad. The era of Federer and Nadal has been an amazing one (no-one else has won at Wimbledon since 2003) and now it's over.
