Things are getting pretty interesting in men’s tennis with Novak Djokovic’s victory over Rafael Nadal to win Wimbledon. Nadal has now lost five times to Djokovic this year, and here’s his quote after today’s loss:

Today my game don’t bother him a lot,” Nadal told reporters. “He’s playing better than my level. And find solutions, that’s what I have to try. When I was healthy, I only lost against him. Probably the mental part is little bit dangerous for me. To win these kind of matches, I have to play well these kind of points [that] can change the match. I didn’t play well these moments. That’s what happened in Indian Wells, that’s what happened in Miami, and that’s what happened here. I don’t want to count in Madrid and Rome because he played much better than me. And to change to be little bit less nervous than these times, play more aggressive, and all the time be confident with myself. That’s what I gonna try next time. If not, I gonna be here explaining the sixth [loss].

Rafael Nadal has defeated Roger Federer, again, to win the French Open. It’s his sixth French Open championship. Many consider Federer to be the best player of all time, but surface means everything in tennis, and Nadal has owned him on clay.

This is also Nadal’s tenth grand slam title, so who knows what people will be saying about the all-time greats in a couple of years if he keeps this up.
