Anybody remember 2 players playing each other twice in a row? This is the first time I think I can recall it happening.... (well, probably happening).

Edit: Wait - before I get a hard time - I mean in this situation where 2 players play for the championship and then turn right around and play in the first round of the next tournament.

I guess you're referring to Verdasco vs Raonic? You didn't mention which two players you're talking about. And Verdasco is not in the final yet.
