Re: Any adjustments for the final? (for Nadal)
Nice match strategy thread, Stpnos.
Rafa has defeated Fed 2 times on hard courts, and taken him to 5 sets once.
So its not impossible, though he'll have to be aggressive, and break Fed's rhythm varying his topspins and their depth into Fed's backhand; something Roddick didn't do yesterday, IMO.
Roddick totally played to Fed's strengths and his netplay was awful.
