Of course it was rigged. As are the courts, his anti-doping controls, and the umpires who don't disqualify him for not hitting a flat ball or not S&V-ing, as he should.
But you know what's worst of all? When Federer was a kid, his trainers were furious nadthards who taught him a OHBH so he would be vulnerable to Rafa's topspin. The outrage makes every objective and intelligent tennis fan's blood boil!
When you get down to it, I guess right now the only way for Rafa to have a non-rigged draw is having to face a well-rested Djokovic at some point. I can't really think of any other combination, can anyone? Which, by the way, I am all for, since that seems to be the ultimate clash these days.
Fan of the fans.
