negative. he cannot. this is not a best of 3 sets foremat. and fed is not 25 years old anymore.
and he is 31 in a few days.
did you forget that nadal and fed played a final at the australian open. fed was playing the best he had in several years. what happened?
beating nole and nadal both at a same slam is not something that is going to happen.
also they will both be better rested and better prepared for the next slam.
somebody has to take out nadal or nole for him.
who can that player be? can that even happen?
CD: beginning of the year, no bad knees (yet) for Rafa, lots of confidence for beating Roger at Wimbledon, slow high bouncing hardcourt...
Right now Rafa is not confident on hardcourts, much less faster ones and Roger's game suits the USO more than Rafa's so I wouldn't put it past the Swiss to beat the Spaniard here, he nearly beat Nole last year so if he can catch him here and play his best he might win.
You know Rafa is killing his knees playing so much hardcourt events, hell sometimes his choices baffle me and I get angry at him playing doubles, he doesn't need to extend his hardcourt playing time more than it is really necessary.
All of that considering that Roger is playing close to 100% (and I don't mean health but game level), can't bet on him doing it but cannot say he won't do it either, with him everything is possible, specially in fast hardcourt
