Jason come on man ... he almost lost to Melzer and struggled against Llodra....and del Potro had a break up in all the sets I think
. And that was pretty obvious because he got thrashed by Fed in the final
What's your point? Nadal struggled big time vs Isner last year at RG, does that mean he didn't deserve the title there?
If anything the points you just mention makes his run even more impressive, the fact that he was able to perform under huge amounts of pressure and dig out matches just proves that. I mean when a guy hits his fastest serve of all time at 5-5 in a TB when 2 sets to love down you can't say that isn't fucking epic.
I disagree about him playing better at the Australian Open in 2010, US Open 2008 SF Murray was Murray is God form for the most part, hardly anyone would have beaten him.
