It’s not just Nadal who can beat Roger F. Federer’s dominance of men’s tennis is definitely over.

Murray gains revenge over Federer

Andy Murray avenged his US Open final loss to former world number one Roger Federer by beating him 3-6 6-3 7-5 to reach the final of the Madrid Masters.

Not a crushing loss for Roger, but a loss.

For Andy Murray he followed that up with a win in the finals today.

Roger Federer won the US Open, but is he back to winning form?

I watched most of the quarters, semis and all the final today. Roger’s play was impressive and most important he won handily in 3 straight sets. But I believe that Andy Murray had is best Open tennis behind him today, especially when he beat Rafa Nadal.

The game is much more competitive today than it was even a year ago. Raf Nadal can win most of the time. Djokovic, Del Proto, Muller and most of all Andy Murray can beat Federer or Nadal some of the time.

So it will be interesting to see how Roger works his way through to win his 14th+ Grand Slam title. Lots of good tennis ahead!

In case you are interested Roger is still #2 in ATP ratings and Andy Murray is #4, while Rafa Nadal is still #1.
