    I would certainly hope!

    Although, recently Rafa has been facing players who take it upon themselves to play the best match of their lives against him. LOL.

    It is the cross that he (and Fed) bears - to be faced, every day, by someone just dying to win against the top player of the world! ...which only makes Rafa's and Fed's achievements even more remarkable.

    lol

    There's actually a vote for Marcos in 3.

    That would certainly beat the Wimby near upset of last year.

    That's really true. I remember watching Phau play Roger in Estoril, and watched him here live against Rafa. He was trying stuff that was just insane.

    Forget "who will win?"

    The better question is: "Will this last at least an hour?"

    This is gonna be ugly. Nadal is pretty ruthless with early round opponents. He's not like Federer, who at least tries to make it look pretty.

    ESPN sucks. What a load of BS: delaying coverage for a major.

    And people here were calling US tennis viewers lucky. ROTFLMAO!

    Yeah, but that won't start until 9 either.

    Compare this with Sky+ - they start with their pre-match feature, analysis and interviews half an hr before the match.

    Same holds for Fed buddy.
    Decent because a good player is playing; not because the match is supposed to be competitive.

    I didn't say it did...

    I'd rather prefer a competitive match rather than watching a beat down personally..
