Soooooo how did he benefit? He still lost in the SF. That makes no sense. And that is strange logic. Just because something happens one year doesn't mean it will happen the next. For instance: How many times has Nadal defended a tournament title that wasn't on clay? I'll give you three guesses. Beeeep. Wrong. NEVER!!!
