Default Any more Federer-Nadal finals in 2009?

A lot of people seem to automatically assume that Federer and Nadal WILL meet at Roland Garros and Wimbledon (has happened for 2 consecutive years now) but for all we know, they might not meet at a Grand Slam for the rest of the year.

Federer was pushed to the edge by Andreev at the USO and Berdych in Australia, and Nadal seemed to have a few tight moments at the USO (before losing to Murray), not to mention the 5-setter vs Verdasco in Australia.

In other words, they're both beatable, Federer more on clay, Nadal more on grass. A couple of hungry players in good form could make the difference here.

3 consecutive years (2006-2007-2008)

and yes you should expect many more finals between them.

I hope not. Awful matches and I'm tired of seeing Fed bending over.

Of course, and I hope they won't meet again.

But it may happen, that's for sure, as clay and especially grass are better surfaces for them than for their best competitors (except that Djokovic is quite good on grass).

It's hard not to imagine them not getting to the finals at RG and Wimby, but I guess you're right and anything is possible. I just wouldn't bet against it.

I hope not at RG anymore, that will be some royal owning

I wouldn't mind at Wimby and USO though, it should be close matches going either way.

Thumbs up Re: Any more Federer-Nadal finals in 2009?

I think it's best for THE RAFA's career that he keeps playing Federer and increase the head-to-head to about 30-6 or some huge edge like that just so there is no doubt who is better in history, though I think the slam totals will indicate it anyway

I don't think my heart can take more federer-nadal finals. I definitely want roger to get to the french open final, but its 99.9% guaranteed that rafa will win, but a miracle can always happen. As for wimbledon, if both get to the final and god forbid nadal wins, I'll probably die of a heart attack or something.

Then Rafa would be 75% of the way to a calendar grand slam. Imagine that.
