Not saying that tennis commentator can't have her/his biases but it is inexcusable for them to act like love stricken fanboys.
I think Cahill was probably saying more that he wouldn't place much stock in the WTF match as an indicator of how Fed and Nadal will match up in the majors (since the WTF is a totally slow, dead court that doesn't take spin at all, unlike the surfaces the majors are played on). And he was actually right, Fed gave Nadal the beatdown of his life at 2011 WTF and a few months later was beaten at AO (albeit via choke).
