Rafael Nadal def. Roger Federer 6-7(5) 6-2 7-6(5) 6-4 in 3hrs 42mins. Momentum shifts were often and…momentuous. Some of Rafa’s angles were ridiculous (read: barely legal). Roger looked devastated afterwards, but he was like a cockroach to kill. A very well-mannered, elegant, Swiss cockroach. Happy Australia Day!
