Rafa shatters Andy Murray's dreams of Wimbledon

Well, Rafa Nadal shut Andy Murray down in straight sets this afternoon, shattering Murray's hope to finally win Wimbledon. Straight sets sounds deceiving - Murray played hard throughout and had a couple of opportunities to take the lead, but was unable to convert. He had a set point on serve in the 2nd set tie break but Nadal took down his 2nd serve down quickly. Murray was up a break in the 3rd but let Nadal break back a couple of games later and the rest is history.

You can't fault Nadal though. The guy is incredible and there is no one in the sport who gives as much heart and soul in EVERY single match he plays than Rafael Nadal. Not to mention he seems like a genuinely nice guy! He's a true champion and I hope he beats the pants off Tomas Berdych on Sunday (no offense to Berdych).

Now if Spain can breeze past Paraguay in the World Cup and move into the semis, it would be nice to see them clinch the title and have an all-Spain win in tennis and soccer!
