Does Rafa's abu dhabi win, Rogers doha win or Rafa's delay say anything about AO?

I dont think so but it will give Rafa the confidents that he can beat Roger in straight sets and for Roger, he starts to worry more about meeting Rafa in the final
But in total I just think that when Roger is in the final rounds of AO he will be too tired too beat Rafa (or any other top 4 player) I mean its a 2 week tournament and Roger gives everything already in the 1st rounds and that is something that Rafa did in before and he dont does that anymore (watch FO, SW19 and USO 1st round and final and then you see that Rafa does not give everything in the 1st round(s) and he improves by ich match). He and Rafa should win every match in straight sets until the SF. But they dont have to play there verry best already in the 1st Round(s). I still expect them to meet in the AO final where Rafa is gonna beat Roger in 4 sets. I predict that Rafa is gonna win the Rafa Slam and he realy has improved himself since the last 2-3 months. He has improved his second serve, his backhand and his slices allot and he is gonna improve even more until AO and that is why he is gonna win in Melbourne.

The only thing that match indicated is that both will probably be in AO final.

On slow HC with high bounce, I am favoring Nadal in 5 sets.

They were both serving very well. Not much you can do when your opponent hits mostly first serves and rushes the net. Federer also had problems returning Nadal's serve, in case you didn't notice.

You'll do well here, at least with your fellow Nadulltards
Ditto! I left midway.

Exclamation Why Abu Dhabi can be important

Let's face it folks. Everytime Nadal and Fed play each other there's something at stake, only exception being those rigged exhos in Christmas. But Abu Dhabi wasn't rigged. It was their first real match after the WTF and (maybe) their last before the AO. Fed was the one with the mental edge after the WTF, even though everyone knows Nadal was exhausted and yet Fed needed 3 sets to win.
A new win over Nadal would have been a confidence boost for Fed coming into the AO, should he and Nadal meet in the final. But Nadal's win in Abu Dhabi reversed the confidence and mental aspect in his favour. Nadal gained confidence against Fed on hardcourts and Fed lost a bit of it. The mental edge will be on Nadal's side next time they play on hardcourts.
The question is: will they meet in Doha next week? Fed's draw is a joke, Nadal might lose before the final to stay fresh before the AO. If they don't meet in Doha, this Abu Dhabi match would be important in a possible AO final between them!!!
