Fed was asked after the match whether he would prefer Nadal or Murray in the finals. Fed replied he would prefer the trophy.
It was a great reply. Then he laughed and then said that he would prefer Rafa as they had a great match last time they played and would like to do it again...
Do you guys believe thats what he really wants?? I was not sure, but I think Fed usually doesnt lie and he is very forthright in his answers.
As a fan, I think finals against Murray could be a little less tough for the one reason that its his first finals ever and he could be nervous like his first wimby QFs against Nadal. On the flipside, I would like Fed to beat Nadal as that would do him a world of good for his confidence. I think US Hard courts is clearly Nadals least favorite surface as he seems to have masteres the other surfaces.
