    Anyone watching?

    Finals : Francesca Schiavone VS Na Li

    I think Schiavone will win because clay suits her style

    Federer VS Nadal :

    Nadal played so good against Murray, I think he'll win

    Anyone else watching?

    Watching women's finals now. Thinking Li Na will be come first Chinese to win French Open (male or female btw) and I want Federer to win so that Djokovic can become #1 and leave Bjorn Borg's record 6 French Open titles in tact.

    I'm watching. I'm actually pretty surprised Federer beat Djokovic, but I guess all streaks have to come to an end. I see Nadal beating Federer.

    I am watching and I hope Na Li wins. This will be a battle. Li took the first set and now is trying to force a tie-break in the second...Go Na Li!!!

    Hoping Federer comes out on top on this one.


    Update: Na Li wins 6/4 7/6...new French Open Champion!!!!icon_biggrin.gif

    Yep, she just about threw it away, but regained composure to become first chinese player to win the French Open. Li Na wins 6-4, 7-6 (7-0 tiebreak).

    Li Na has won the French Open icon_smile.gif I like Schiavone too, a great competitor
    FYI , Li Na is good on all surfaces. She doesn't posses a big, consistent serve. But she is a quality shot maker, a great mover on the court.

    And about the Men's final,
    Well, Rafa isn't playing great tennis at the moment on his coveted clay. Federer is getting better with every match. This final match promises much.
    I hope this match doesn't turn out like their 2008 final.
    If the match goes to a fifth set, Nadal will win.
    Federer's serve and confidence will be the key.
    Hoping for Federer to win this time icon_smile.gif

    Li won, good for her! She is such a great personality, one of the most popular players on the women's tour.

    She will make a MINT in endorsements back home in China.

    I think Nadal will win, he's in Federer's head.

    Really happy for Li Na! She held her nerves (despite a few shaky games in the the second set) and delivered when it mattered! She is one of the most consistent players on the tour right now and I'm really interested to see how this plays out at Wimbledon especially if the Williams sisters are not there.

    I might be a bit biased here regarding the men - I have NEVER liked Federer...Cannot stand him. While he had some good shots and good serves, he won in part because Djokovic joked on the most crucial moments. Nadal is NOT going to joke -- he's won this tournament 5 times and knows this court inside and out. He is in Fed's head and will be able to take apart his game. His topspin forehand shots will hurt Fed's backhand undoubtedly.

    Nadal in 4 sets (wishful thinking says 3!)

    Not sure if we'll see Nadal hoist the trophy in victory tomorrow, but we'll probably see quite a bit of this. icon_wink.gif

    I'm glad Li Na won. I was rooting for her.

    I'm freaking upset Djokovic lost yesterday. I was upset for most of yesterday.

    Federer just won a set off Nadal. Nadal is still 2 sets up.
    So far: 7-5, 7-6 (7-4 tie break), 5-7

    Federer came out like a man on a mission, going up 4-1 in the first set, but Nadal came back with a vengence and had it up til this last set when Federer broke him at 5-5 to go up 6-5 and then hold to win the set. Nadal could have closed it out in this last set cause he was up 4-2.

    And yea, Nadal has been digging in his ass a lot today. Annoying as hell.

    Desperately hoping that Roger beats the ass picker. (He's been doing that for years and it's annoying as heck. If you don't like something riding your ass, choose a different type of brief.)

    Roger has been playing extremely well today and I'm incredibly impressed. I think that the Babolat balls are definitely to his liking.

    So Nadal wins in 4 sets, become 7th man to win 10 or more major titles and ties Bjorn Borg for most French Open title wins at 6. Denies Federer his 17th major win. And still picking his ass.

    Yes, he was definitely still at it today. However, it seemed to me that NBC did a better job this time at concealing the butt picking from full view by using lots of crafty camera angles. They rarely showed Nadal from behind at the baseline. Most of the shots of him preparing to serve were front view shots from the waist up. The picking was most often seen in the long shots with Nadal in the opposite court where it was all but impossible to hide from view.

    Her win is a big deal for Asians and Chinese.
    I think she deserves it because she beat the top three favorites and the defending champion. Her groundstroke and movement is almost flawless. Very impressive.

    Consider this is her least favorite court, she might still do very well at Wimbledon.
