I heard about that. It's pretty cool :-)
It's because Nadal is a clay specialist and Federer is a grass guy. Even though Federer is the best tennis player alive, he can never beat Nadal.

yeah but its a joke really!

I mean Federer is money on grass because he hits the ball so freakin hard, the fact that he is on grass but his shot still hits clay takes away his 'grass advantage'...

Meanwhile Nadal gets the clay to help his game, (slow the game down and allows for more finesse).

Nadal should have won.
