Call it an upset?: No.3 in the world, a 16-time Grand Slam Champion, was the underdog coming into what was being pegged as an epic match against the No.2-ranked player.

It was a great match from both sides. Honestly, I was confident; I knew I was going to close this out.”

Murraculous Run: I think we can all agree that  Andy Murray was no slouch in his match against Nadal, despite his loss. He came into the match suffering from numerous ailments, but lack of confidence wasn’t one of them. His run to the Semifinals at Roland Garros proves he still has what it takes to get himself to hurdle, now he just needs to find what it takes to jump over it. Even Nadal acknowledged Murray’s capabilities, saying “He deserves to win a Grand Slam and in my opinion, he is going to do it.”
Also, Li Na’s best friends on the tour? “I like Kuzzy, Kuznetsova, she’s a nice girl. Jankovic. She talks so loud. You didn’t see her but you can hear the voice.” She also attempts to teach the Road to Roland Garros driver Chinese. He should really stick to driving.
