I feel you there, Pam
We all have to be prepared for a tough match. Many said Nadal can't win RG this year coz he's only 18, and it's his first time playing here etc but so far he showed no sign of nerves and is incredibly focus (you can dislike him, but can not disregard that is admirable from a 18 yo). From their respective interviews, neither feel having any advantage or disadvantage over each other. I find it interesting to note that Nadal who had said a few times before that "if Federer plays his best, he will win" had changed to "it's 50/50 and if I play my best, I have my chance" sth like that, being more focus on himself now, that shows his confidence too, rightfully so with the way he had been winning.
Also majoriy draw their conclusions that if Nadal can come close to beating Rogi in Miami final, he should be the favourite here, but I like to stick to my conclusion that Rogi won the 4th and 5th sets rather easily, so Rogi can adjust to Nadal's game and will find the way to win...yeah I know...I'm slightly bias here, I just want to focus on the positive part
Too many speculation in GM on who will win, and some big talks from respective fans but the fact is that nobody have a clue what will happen. For me, I just want to believe that Rogi CAN
and WILL WIN
this (yeah I learn this from poster of GM, seems like if you underline and type in CAPITAL letters, it might just turn into the fact
