Now that We've seen it both ways, which do you prefer?

Now that we've seen
Nadal-Federer
Djokovic-Murray
in the semis instead of the usual Nadal-Murray, Djokovic-Federer, which do you prefer? I still prefer Nadal-Murray, Federer-Djokovic. We've seen Fed is no match for Rafa in slams no matter where so whats the point of watching a match were we know exactly what will happen every time unless indoors. Rafa heavy to backhand, lots of UE from Fed, Fed's serve goes away, etc,etc.

So which would you rather see for the coming slams. Personally I'd want to see some new names joining Rafa in the semis but of these two options....

Always nice to see Rafa own Federer...

I don't care who chokes in 5 against Djokovic, so I guess it's the new for me...

Re: Now that We've seen it both ways, which do you prefer?

Nadal-Federer is predictable sure but Murray-Djokovic was fun - we haven't seen enough of that match up - only 11 matches, compared to now 30 for Nadal/Djokovic! I love Nadal-Murray matches usually but they were getting a bit boring as semis - it would have been interesting to see it as a final. Similarly would like to see Murray-Federer as a semifinal but that'll only happen if one of them knocks Rafa off no.2 and I'd rather not see Rafa/Djokovic as a semi.

The change was good - for the French Open I hope it's back to the old order (if the top 4 do get there) - a Novak/Fed rematch would be awesome whereas Rafa/Fed at RG has happened too many times now....

If Fed met Djokovic in RG semis he'd probably meet Rafa again in final though :P

Re: Now that We've seen it both ways, which do you prefer?

You know, I think if it was Nole-Fed and Murray-Nadal, we might have got another Fed Murray final. Nadal came out playing really poorly last night, and the last two Murray-Nadal semis went 4, so Murray might have not given away the opening set out of nerves like he did against Nole. And if Fed blitzed Nole the first set, he might not have felt such and urge to collapse like he always does against Nadal.

But I think a Nole-Murray and Fedal semi was a nice change. It would be nice to see Murray win one of these, and he definitely had his chances but I think he is still the underdog against both Nadal And Djokovic about equally.

And keeping Fedal out of the finals, in which Fed always collapses in the exact same way, that's good for tennis.

This is true, but how many times have we seen it, gets old. The best would be Rafa/Murray in one sf and Novak against an inform Tsonga or Berdych or something in the other. The swiss miss is not winning anything with those other 3 in form, that is certain.

personally i like djoker-murray since federer is too dumb/arrogant to make the fedal match-up interesting
