Exactly. Nothing to even discuss if that is the final, zzzzz. Nobody would even bother watching it, even most of the Federer fans would probably find it too boring to watch even with the guaranteed 18th slam, they would just watch the trophy presentation on youtube later, that is it. Not that it matters since the likelihood of Ferrer beating Djokovic on his favorite hard court are about on par with Ferrer beating his career master Federer in the final. Ferrers odds even against Murray on a non clay court would be about 10%, especialy considering on fire he went down pretty easily to a really subpar and then slamless Murray in the 2011 semi, and yet he is 10 times more likely to beat Murray than either of the other two.
