) . There are no excuses this year
I will really start ro believe he'll never win it if it doesn't happen this year too
The order of the SF is not determined by which hald starts first. They decide that according to the matches themselves.
I remember when Tsonga made the semis, he played the latter SF, better ratings.
But I think Novak and Rafa could ask for the first SF. They would not deny the #1 player in the world, and a 9-time RG champion. I hope they do it.
But today I heard some British pundits on Radio Roland Garros openly hoping that Rafa would drag Novak to a 2-day SF, so that Murray could get a flat Novak, like Wawrinka did.
Can you believe it? Whay happened to fair play? Supposed to be a British value!
