Anybody wanna make a bet as to who'll be the first player to beat Nadal AND Federer in a single tournament? (And which tournament it'll be?)
You're right about this. But I call it a domination of top 2 since those two have won not 90 or 99 but 100% of the tournaments both have entered. And they have extreme streaks on their favourite surfaces: Roger on grass and hardcourts, Nadal on clay.
As for the bet, I wonder who will beat BOTH of them at present. But winning a tournament where both N and F are in the draw is not as far fetched. Then it could be anyone, e.g. in US Open Blake taking out Nadal, Nalbandian taking out Roger, and Ljubicic winning the whole thing.
