I am one of the ride-and-die Nole faithful, and even I did not think that he would be Rafa in the Miami final. Thank you for proving me wrong. I feel like last year’s Novak would have faded away after losing the first set. But not the 2011 edition! He came back strong, took the second set, and won the third in a breaker after almost three and a half hours of battling.
Well deserved win, Nole. 24-0 for the year! That’s straight gangsta, son!
Though I do have to say that the Rafa fan in me is a little bummed. Even awesome Nole hugs only help a little with the pain.
I know, Rafa, I know…is not the result you wanted, no?
