We have seen many close matches between them, and it is not a best of 5. If it was a slam I would put money on Nadal, but in this situation I would not bet on either.
Because Roger simply doesn't look comfortable on court at all. Granted, Bellucci and Raonic played well, but Federer's been missing some easy shots more often.
Yes, he's been playing well, but this is his third tournament in 4 weeks, I think. He was bound to feel the effects in either IW or Miami.
