It's a great day for tennis

What an unbelievable men's final at Wimbledon! The suspense was awful, with the British weather giving stop/start all afternoon.

Nearly five hours - the longest men's singles final in history - seventeen minutes past nine by the time Federer's return ball clipped the net.

And at 6-4, 6-4, 6-7, (3-7), 6-7, (8-10), and 9-7 this was way past tie break, even if they were allowed. As one of the BBC comentators put it - "this is just different tennis to anything we've ever seen before."

And what a great guy Nadal is. Of his opponent he said to Sue Barker "He's still the best - he's still number one - he's still five times champion."

As someone commented - it's a great day for tennis.
