ok, first off ill go ahead and say im not a big nadal fan. and im not a big federer fan, but i will say i like federer more than nadal for various reasons. all i've read on here is federer won BECAUSE nadal was tired/injured. i dont know much about the madrid tournament, but was it a week tournament, or a 2 week? i do know that the tournament itself is best of 3 sets. now heres my question. If nadal is getting injured, and wore and everything from a reletively easy tournament conditions, how is he gonna handle the french? chances are the conditions are going to be hotter, and chances are he will not play a match in less than 2.5 hours(i would think) since its best of 5. i wanna know how he could possibly run into multiple 4 hour matches before the final, how is he going to handle it?
