Both played like shit. I'm hoping this was like the Davydenko match Fed had at the Masters in 2007, when he played like shit but got the job done and went soaring into the stratosphere in his next 3 matches (Roddick, Nadull, Ferrer) to take the title.
There certainly are signs. I think Rog was a lot better than in the first match (despite the result and mistakes). He showed signs of his brilliant indoor best. I am excited about this event now.
