    Wow, what a brilliant final.

    I always find it really inspirational watching those two...they are both superhuman and always give everything...they make you feel like you could achieve anything if you put the effort in.

    That's why I like sports like tennis and boxing best, just one on one, with nowhere to hide.

    Apparently when Federer was a child at tennis classes the teacher made them just bounce a ball with a racquet until he told them to stop.

    Only Federer and one other lad kept it up for half an hour when they got told to stop, but all the others had started messing around.

    Federer and the other lad were the only ones in the class who went on to become tennis pros...

    Week 1 is always a bit routine mostly at grand slams, and the heat this year in Oz is ridiculous.
