Yes Roger won that wimby and that's another wimby for the record books......but the defending champion was not in that tournament.

I think on paper it looks beautiful for Fed but on paper it was a hollow win because the defending champion wasn't even in the tournament .
hey, atleast federer had taken nadal to 9-7 in the 5th ...

and nadal hadn't won two wimbys in a row ... he had won just one, wimby 2008, that too narrowly ...

What had nadal done vs del potro in USO 2009 .....oh wait, he had lost 2,2 and 2 .....

now see that is an unworthy/totally hollow win - USO 2010 ......
