Rafael Nadal with the Wimbledon 2010 trophy

Finally Rafael Nadal has won the Wimbledon 2010. He defeated Tomas Berdych in straight sets 6-3, 7-5, 6-4. And what was even more convincing was that his serve was not even broken once during the course of the match. This is his second win at Wimbledon and his eighth Grand Slam win.

But one must say that Tomas Berdych played well throughout the tournament, I guess that today just was not his day. Well it does not happen many times that a player defeats Roger Federer in a Grand Slam. Well now for the second consecutive Grand Slam a player who defeated Federer in the tournament has not gone onto win the slam, and ironically it was Nadal who defeated that player in the finals. He did look a little nervous playing in his first Grand Slam final. It is not always easy playing in your first slam final. Also he had to face the world number 1, and I guess to add to this his killing serves also did not work. It was unfortunate he lost but Nadal was way ahead of him today. So far for a record, Nadal has featured in as many as 10 Grand Slam finals and no one except Roger Federer has been able to defeat him then. In fact Federer has defeated him twice but has lost to him five times in the finals.

Nadal did win his first match convincingly in straight sets. But his journey after that was not very convincing (his second and third matches were five setters). But he came into his rhythm in the quarter finals against Soderling, then Murray in semis,  defeating Soderling in four sets and then Murray in straight sets. And then finally he proved why he is world number 1, and why he won here 2 years back.

With this tournament also over it is confirmed that Federer also drops down to world number 3, when the rankings will change tomorrow. I might write about this tomorrow when the rankings actually change.

In the end I would like to congratulate Nadal for his win, and I hope that he wins the US Open in September to complete his Slam as well as win three slams this year. If that happens I think that Nadal then should end the year with world number 1 ranking. Also I am watching the mixed doubles final now, and i hope that Leander Paes win this one. So I am putting some of the Images from his memorable win at the Wimbledon here.

    I really enjoyed reading your article keep up the good work! Love the photos too man :). I thought that this year’s wimbledon was very exciting and was happy to see Rafael Nadal take home his second title. But you have wonder if his injuries are going to catch up to him. I’m worried for how his career is going to pan out because of the injury problems considering it could be an unbelievable career rather than just very good. Also, you think you could check out my blog? I really want to know what your opinion is on my thoughts. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2010/07/05/nadals-last-chance/

    Hello Miranda,

    I completely agree with you, he surely will be back. Though he should have won the title this time around too but he was a little unfortunate not to do that. Anyways, he has been playing very well and making it to almost every final. I guess he just needs to convert them.

    But yes, I completely agree he will surely be back soon.

    -S
