    Hope so. Otherwise it'll be like watching round 1 but with someone winning a trophy at the end of it
    Wawrinka is better then that.

    I guess we'll see tomorrow but his game just doesn't seem to do much against Nadal, I hope it's a competitive match but it'll take something big for that to happen from Wawrinka

    Fed had a back injury when he played him at Indian Wells and i know that back and ankle injuries are relatively common for him but his post-Wimbledon displays i don't believe had anything to with injuries. I agree that he's not back to his very best (at 32 i doubt he ever will) but against Tsonga and the first the two sets of Murray he wasn't winning because they were playing poorly, he was genuinely demolishing them.
    I didn't catch the Tsonga match but judging by the scoreline it would appear to be a lot closer than a demolishing? He looked comfortable on serve in the first 2 sets against Murray. I think it would have been better for Federer to take time out to fully recover from these injuries if they were affecting his performances.

    Fed always chucks away break points, it wasn't close though.

    What a start by Warwinka. Amazed that the crowd have turned against Nadal too. Hope Warwinka keeps his focus!

    Wow, Rafa booed by the crowd. Got to admit I think Rafa's done this on purpose to roadblock Stan's momentum. Bit conflicted now.

    On the other hand, Rafa does look injured - he was rolling serves in at under 100mph last game.

    Yep I'm surprised Nadal hasn't tossed in the towel and retired. Could do himself some serious damage.

    Maybe he will as soon as he's 2 sets down?

    It's a shame now that he beat Federer since it may have been more of a final.

    It did seem quite tactical at the time. People love rooting for the underdog and Warwinka (on paper) came into this final as a massive underdog. Who last won a grand slam who wasn't part of Nadal, Federer, Djokovic and Murray?

    2009, Del Potro.

    Have to admit I thought Rafa was being tactical (and I'm his supporter).

    But seriously **** you Australian crowd, absolutely despicable behaviour to an injured player.
