What's Federer's record since the US Open? Something like 37 out of 39 matches won? (one of them a meaningless DC tie trying to save the Swiss team a** as usual). And please...even if Federer wins the IW final today he's still 800 points behind Nadal which means he ALSO has to win Miami and count on Nadal losing before the final. If Federer gets there, he more than earned it.
