    I hate commentators. Constantly brown-nosing Murray. So boring.


    "He is a genius" - I barely made this out by one of them, barely. Kinda hard to hear when their head is so far up his backside.

    Tomorrow's QFs should be interesting - I'd be wary of Berdych in particular as he's been giving Fed a bit of trouble in the last few years.

    Looking forward to Rafa against Raonic. Should be his first real test after Australia.

    Fedal! Fedal! Fedal!

    Can't fracking wait.. Fed just gave Berdych a bagel, he's in some right form. Could finally be a match where they are both in form.

    Nadal vs Raonic starts at 9.

    Federer slaps Berdych off the court with a bagel. He really really wants to play Nadal, you can see it in his demeanour, he's excited by his game, the swagger is back - he even said in his post match interview that he's backing Rafa to come through against Raonic.

    For a player so limited from the baseline, Raonic sure does make a lot of unforced errors.

    Wow Raonic. Just defeated Rafa. Great performance. Nadal hasn't beaten a top 10 player since the French Open.

    Not many people can beat Nadal after coming from a set down and saving 3 match points - congratulations to Raonic! And Rafa played pretty well today, might have even won more points overall.

    One suspects that Federer's odds just got slashed for the title. Certainly don't see Murray or Raonic beating him and he of course recently bet Djokovic.

    Think it shows he may never recover to his former heights. Injuries and age were always going to catch him up quickly with his style of play.

    I think Nadal is at the same stage that Federer was in 2010.

    But Federer still has kept his body in good shape. His style of play doesn't massively impact on his body which could lead to more injuries.

    I think Nadal will continue to be strong on clay but struggle on other surfaces. I don't think he's going to overhaul Federer's grand slam record like it looked like at one point.

    Age for age I think 09 was last year for Nadal so he's now behind.

    Despite all that, Federer has only won 2 slams since the beginning of 2010. That's 2 in 5 years. Federer started to decline massively in 2010. I think Nadal is at the same stage and he will struggle even more to win slams so I agree with you on that. Not only is he injury prone but he also has a crappy serve which will only make it tougher for him as his ground game will inevitably decline with age and more injuries.

    Am afraid to say this but the only slam Nadal is winning or will ever win is the French Open😭

    Murray is a disgrace when playing Djokovic, Federer and Nadal these days. I doubt he would even win another masters 1000 let alone another slam.
