At wimbledon he struggled against,Hassi & prezntner.When nadull reaches the SF/F its already too late coupled with the fact that the grass is worn by the SF.
Post wimbledon his ground game was poor -He lost to Baghdatis @ Cincy--So how did he win the USO with his ground game on the decline, No Del-po/ Murray, His serve mph improved, he had an easy draw of old tired players including his favorite bitchboys Fiasco n' lopez.
Fed weaken Novak for him who is known for stamina issues. They played a tough 5 setter in the 2nd match of the day, hence Novak less time to recover from the match,as opposed to his match with Younzhy, by the 4 set Novak was gassed.
You seem to forget that this was the third year on a row that Rafa reached the SF at USO, including two years (08, 09) where no luck in the draw was involved. Therefore, one could think by now that Rafa in the SF was a likely outcome (I say likely, not certain, nothing ever is certain), no matter the draw. Yet you insist in arguing he was lucky almost from R1, which is bollocks. In the end, he reached the SF, found a rival that was easier, which is bound to happen sometime if you keep making the last 4, made the finals and beat nr 3 in the world. The suggestion that Djoko was tired by the time the final came along implies a sad ignorance of the history of tennis: seldom has a final ever been played between two perfectly rested players, most times one or both of them have had to survive some pretty tough games before they made the final. That is the glory of tennis.
In the final analysis, people like you keep insisting Rafa should take the rap for Murray's failure at USO, since he was the seeded rival in the SF and it was he, not Rafa, who failed to live up to expectations.
