I'm reminded of Andy Roddick's comment at Wimbledon a few years ago: "I'm going to have start winning some of these matches before it can be called a rivalry." Rafael is now 6-1 over Roger. After that tremendous final in Rome, I thought for sure that Roger had Rafa figured out and would pull off a win. Instead, after the first set today, he didn't even bother showing up, and played some of the worst tennis I've seen him play in quite a while. Granted, Nadal has that effect on many players; Rafa was going to make Roger earn it. Perhaps the media should lay off the "great rivalry" hype until Roger starts winning some of these matches. I think Rafa will do well on the summer hardcourts and perhaps there Roger can exact his revenge. Still, a win over Rafa on fastcourt wouldn't be quite as sweet as getting one on clay. Thank goodness the clay season is over, now we can get to the real tennis: GRASS.
