Today's Grand Slam final matchup is absolutely wonderful!

Absolutely. When Federer and Nadal play each other, it's really tough to say who will win.

The two of them have both been in fantastic form recently. However, I'm a Federer fan so I've got to support him. Look at how gracefully he moves. Watching him play is a delight. Nice shot!

I prefer powerful and energetic athletes like Nadal. They can run forever and never give up. Federer is great, but he's already 31 years old. Nadal, on the other hand, is still young and strong. He possesses an advantage when it comes to physical constitution and power. This is key when it comes to five set matches. In the end, when the athletes can barely move, it comes down to who's more fit.
Each lesson is centered around a natural dialogue with key vocabulary directly prepared and translated for your use. You can also listen to each sentence as an individual recording to improve your listening and comprehension skills.
