    Isn’t weird how Fed and Nadal have never played against each other at USO?

    Just saw this, isn’t it weird they’ve never played each other at USO? I could be wrong and am referring to the final, but I don’t think they’ve ever played each other at USO.

    He's never been the same afterwards. Since then, he doesn't hit the ball with same conviction, authority and nothing to lose mentality (apart from wimby19 vs rafa and yec19 vs djok). This loss should have never happened to Roger.. It had huge and much bigger impacts than what most of us realise...
