Yeah! Federer is poetry in motion, whilst Nadal is a dull baseline slugger.

What an exciting amazing match. Roger is not only a world class athlete, he is a refined gentleman.  

Bravo Roger!!! 

Roger is the GOAT. He has the grace and agility of Baryshnikov and the mental toughness of the Terminator.  

Also, Federer should be in the dictionary as illustrations of "sportsmanship" and "gentleman".  

He is 5 years older than Nadal and 6 years older than Djokovic. He is truly incredible.

Can't believe it's been 11 years (since 2008) that Federer and Nadal have faced each other in Wimbledon

For a long time it seemed like they'd always meet each other in Grand Slams

Even though both matches were 4-setters that look a little lopsided on paper, they were both very entertaining, well-contested matches to watch. I'm glad I sacrificed my sleep for them last night. It was nice seeing Federer prevail - Rafa had been on a pretty good streak against him lately in the big matches. Should be an epic final!

yet there are still those that think Federer is overrated, at 37 hes proving them wrong once again. LOL

He is a class act. Intelligent, multi-lingual and refined. It’s worth pointing out that Nadal is also a credit to the game - a genuinely nice guy.

Two gems.

I haven't met anyone that thinks that, but they are idiots if they think that. Most rightly believe that he is the greatest tennis player that has ever lived.

If you saw it, it was a fantastic game yesterday. Great work from both players.
