. Great stuff...
mostly in your head from your personal history and what you heard about them (quite a lot of other Djokofans, esp. Serbian ones, also feel like that apparently), not so much from what we see now and from what others like me may feel : I don't ignore their early personal opposition more than you, but when I see them playing now, I mostly see a tennis opposition, nothing else.
Others have something else in their mind and are more excited and feel a more personal opposition when Fed and Nadal face each other, it's still the most appealing opposition for most fans.
And some Murray-fans like Muzzalovah and others who were touched by some Fed's words surely feel a lot of tension when Murray faces Fed, some others it's against Nadal the nemesis or Djokovic the generation opponent ...
it's mostly a matter of what a fan has in mind.
Personally I feel most tension when Fed faces Nadal, for you it's when Djokovic faces Fed (and when Fed loses to Djokovic, I feel no tension at all, seriously it's the least disappointing losses for me
), for others like Murrayfans it's something else ...
