I know a lot of people say his time is running out, but I think after 1 semi and 2 finals in three years with all three defeats to Nadal, surely he has to make a breakthrough one year? The other thing is, I personally believe that he was closer to beating Nadal this year than last year. The match score doesn't look that way, but the first set in particular could very easily have gone his way, he had 10 break points and for whatever reason didn't convert even one. There were things in the match in general that just didn't go his way. Had those things gone his way, I think we'd be talking about a calendar year GS heading into the US Open. Thing is though, that on break point Nadal will either come up with a big first serve, hit a drop shot for the first time in the whole match, or just not miss in general. Then Federer will eventually go for too much and make an Unforced Error, or get out of position and Nadal will hit a winner. I really feel for Federer because it must incredibly frustrating to know that you got so close and yet so far. What do you all think? Will he do it next year and finally conquer his Everest?
