looks like federer just cant beat in form novak/nadal anymore.... he'll have to face them on an off-day to have a chance
You think Federer couldnt beat Djokovic in Basel, Madrid, Dubai and WTF?
People really seem to buy into surfaces playing the same crap, let me tell you that surfaces still play completely different and no one doubts Federer cant beat Djokovic on slow hardcourt or slow/medium claycourts (however he could beat in form Djokovic on the fast claycourts in RG last year).
It all comes to the surface, USOPEN beeing neutral ground for both while Wimbledon, olympics, Cincinatti and indoors beeing to Feds advantage. That is, until it is proven otherwise.
