Some people think that Roger talking up Andy is his way of talking down Rafa.
Wimbledon 2004 was a great match. I still feel that if the rain delays hadn't come, Andy would've beaten Roger. Roger was on his heels the entire match and even after Roger beat him there was only a few points difference between them. I don't think Andy should have taken that match badly. Yes, it was a heartbreaker but the outcome of the match had most everything to do with luck being on Roger's side that day.
2005 was forgettable and boring. Andy didn't stand a chance from day one. He had been struggling all week, nearly got knocked out by that Braccilai &^%$ and then his semi-final with ToJo was held over for two days due to rain. Andy got screwed on their bad scheduling all week long. Roger, meanwhile, was perfectly rested and fresh for the final. Not surprising Roger won in straight sets in barely over an hour.
I enjoyed the Rafa-Roger final though. The first set was a gimmee, Rafa was obviously nervous and dropping the first set badly seems to happen to him a lot. After that he played better and better and took Roger the grass king to 2 TBs. I think that's amazing for someone who's specialty is claycourt and had previously not gotten past the third round of Wimbledon. Roger and Rafa are similar in that once they put their mind to something, they get very close to doing it. Roger desperately wants that RG title and Rafa, it seems, wants Wimbledon just as badly. A good match-up.
