I was just thinking, with the way Verdasco pushed Rafa the other day, he might have actually had a chance against Roger. He has a better serve and was way consistent this tournament. And let's not forget he showed more guts against Rafa than Roger (too bad he double faulted on that match point or they would have played for another couple of hours).
Roger has no mental block against Verdasko.. Think about it. Roger has actually outplayed Rafa in each of the first four sets. Only some sudden severe mental seizures prevented him from winning it in 3 or 4. He could not win it in 5, really.
