    I have to say, that I was shocked.
    In fact, I didn't finish the match, as I was convinced he would.

    I really do think this is the end for fed ex.

    NAdal has shaken him. But lets see the American Open before making such a judgement. His probably just going through a phase.

    Rafael Nadal has ended Roger Federer's 235-week reign at the top of the world rankings after the Spaniard defeated Nicolas Lapentti 7-6 6-1 in the quarter-finals of the Cincinnati Masters.

    If he doesn't win Cincinnati he'll still be No 1, but not until Aug 18th when Fed loses points he's defending. If he wins he'll be No 1 on Monday.

    It's nice to have a change at the top. Federer has been up there way too long.

    Sampras ended the year as No 1 for 6 years on the trot. Fed's done it for 4, but he's been No 1 for all that time. It's good to have a rivalry I think. Sampras/Agassi, Becker/Edberg, McEnroe/Borg. I'm still not convinced Nadal will win the US or Australia, but if he does the guy's a fookin genius.

    Nope. Tennis has, and always will be, complete shit. :) Glad to contribute!

    I fancy Djokovic to give Murray a pasting. Depends on how the latter serves really. Being broken twice by Karlovic is spectacularly bad, even if he did win out in the end.

    Eh? Five slams not enough for you?

    I assume he means hard court slams, and he's right. There are lots of players who can beat Nadal on a fast hard court, including Djokovic, Murray, the non-mug version of Federer, Nalbandian, Ferrer, Davydenko, even Roddick, as seen in Dubai earlier this year. Nadal's game just isn't suited to faster hard courts. The event in Toronto last week was a pretty slow hard court, whereas Cincy and the US Open are much faster.

    Nadal's best chance of winning a hard court slam is the Australian Open, as it's somewhat slower than the US, plus the hot conditions are going to work in his favour most of the time thanks to that incredible stamina. He just needs to not run into someone like Djokovic on a hot streak for that to happen.

    What you on about? Nadal's awesome of clay and grass. I was just saying he's got a lot to prove at the US and Oz. He hasn't done well at these 2 up to now.

    And yesterday's loss to Djokovic only confirms my doubts that he has a long way to go before he can dominate on hard courts.

    I'm a huge fan of Nadal, in case that wasn't clear.

    cheers Aretak, at least someone knew what I was on about. The guys that hit the ball flat will always cause problems for Nadal on the hard courts. They take his time away. I hope he does win Oz or US though. It'll make it interesting.

    Murray has taken the first set against Djokovic in the tie break :) Good play from him too, pushed Djoko to deuce in most of the Serbs service games, but just couldnt break him while getting through his own service games reasonably easily.
