Yes. For a very short while today it looked like Almugro just might do the unthinkable, but that was obviously not meant to be.
If Roger makes the final, then he can make do with an RG SF if Rafa wins both events.
If Roger loses tonight, he has to reach the RG final if Rafa wins both events.
If Roger wins tonight AND beats Rafa in the Final, the deal is done.
BTW, I like Rafa, but these days I hope that he loses everytime he steps on court.
