Re: If Youzhny Beats Nadal...
I would be pretty devastated. I won't say Nadal's draw was "cheap" but it was ideal. He could make it to the finals again, but probably not with such a trouble-free path. So, I think he really hopes to win quickly today and be extra fresh for tomorrow.
A 5 setter over Murray, Djokovic, or Del Potro would not leave him with great chances in the final, and that's what I think we may see in future years. He can always beat these guys on hard courts, but more often than not, it won't be simple. This is as perfect as it gets. He needs to win today.
If I lose the first set, the match will be complicate, no?
My favorite Federer and Nadal quotes following their 2008 Wimbledon final:
“But right now, it’s not much of a how do you say? a feel-good thing.”
"In the last game, I didn't see nothing. The true, I wasn't see nothing, no?"
