When Nadal took Federer out at the French and Wimbledon in 2008, I thought he'd be the dominanant force going forward, but didn't know for how long. Now I know. If Djokovic is in Nadal's head it's because he's outplaying Nadal. He speaks
too as well as he plays, like a champion.
There's a similar surge of young talent in women's tennis. Kvitova, Azarenka, Lisicki, Goerges, Pavlyuchenkova, Paszek, and Wickmayer to name a few all hit big with the fearless attitude - and all tower over another one, Cilbulkova, who barefooted is max 5 foot 3 inches above the ground! Here she is standing tall as she can after being pounded 6-1 6-1 in the quarters. Sharapova is a beauty, but on the court the little one is my heart-throb.
