French Open. Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal Final Sunday.
Posted by QB on June 6, 2008
Federer and Nadal once again will face in French Open final on Sunday. Nadal played exceptionally well today defeating Djokovic in straight sets. The match was display of high quality tennis.
Federer defeated Gael Monfils of France in four sets with vulnerability not playing high quality tennis. Federer missed easy volleys on the net, engaging in long rallies, which does not benefit him, his serve not very effective as well. Monfils, on the other hand, played very very good tennis match showing his real potential. Monfils look like has matured player now and this is for the first time he has impressed me showing his cross court shorts angle shorts and the power. He will climb up to top ten players ranking if he just keep this level of game.
Federer has to come with different game plan if he wanted to win against the best clay court player Nadal. Federer can’t involve in long rallies with Nadal because he is the best returner of the ball in tennis, come to the court keeping his fear of losing another final to Nadal out of his mind. The taking the fear factor out will help him play high quality tennis. Federer play the match trying to finish the point as quickly as possible.
This is how he can win his first French Open title.
