You seem to forget that this was the third year on a row that Rafa reached the SF at USO, including two years (08, 09) where no luck in the draw was involved. Therefore, one could think by now that Rafa in the SF was a likely outcome (I say likely, not certain, nothing ever is certain), no matter the draw. Yet you insist in arguing he was lucky almost from R1, which is bollocks. In the end, he reached the SF, found a rival that was easier, which is bound to happen sometime if you keep making the last 4, made the finals and beat nr 3 in the world. The suggestion that Djoko was tired by the time the final came along implies a sad ignorance of the history of tennis: seldom has a final ever been played between two perfectly rested players, most times one or both of them have had to survive some pretty tough games before they made the final. That is the glory of tennis.

In the final analysis, people like you keep insisting Rafa should take the rap for Murray's failure at USO, since he was the seeded rival in the SF and it was he, not Rafa, who failed to live up to expectations.

Novak's semifinal just lasted near 4 hours. Is that a long time? We all know there were few long rallies in that match. So it didnot influence Novak's game with rain-delayed reason. That's because the match was tough and Novak owns poor body when you saw the 4th set. I think the match will be still like last time even if god gives Novak 3 days rest.

That's Wimbledon for you. Throw in a shitty service game or give up a mini break and the set is gone. Nadal was not playing his starting matches well, probably because he hasn't played on grass for 2 years and was still adjusting. Run into big server playing lights out tennis and it's trouble. Haase was serving at almost 90% in the sets he won. He was pummeling aces and unreturnables all day. You can't deny that Nadal got better and better as the tournament went on.

Toronto and Cinci losses were expected, he was still adjusting his HC game to make a push for USO. Obviously didn't try his hardest.

agree.
the same thing happened in grass event before Wimbledon, he lost to his compatriot Lopez that day.

I think he just wanted to find some feel to adjust his game for slams. So it is not a big deal losing some matches before slam events.

You are saying it like you can do it better.
PS: Nole got one restday before playing Rafa in the final.
So Nole was not tired.
Rafa was just better.

It was Federer's fault for not reaching the final and destroying your hopes and dreams.
I could not say that better
Great post bro

This is what Nole will reach in 2011
AO: SF (beaten by Rafa or Roger)
FO: F or SF (beaten by Rafa or Roger
SW19: SF (beaten by Rafa or Roger)
USO: SF (beaten by Rafa or Roher)
Conclusion: nole having a great year
The only ones who can beat nole at his best are Rafa and Roger or perhaps murray and roddick

Its similar with nadull @ the USO he was constantly putting himself in a position to win & his HC nemesis Murray/Del-po was missing they stopped him @ the last 3 HC slams.
So fed n' nadull derserve their respective slams does that mean fed is unbeatable on clay or nadull on HC no,simply they paid their dues and was in the right place & the right time.
However if nadull could beat a full fit Del-po & Murray in a HC slam in 2011 etc.Then one could make an arguement that nadull improved his HC game.

So you are saying that a healty at there best Murray and Delpotro can beat a healty at his best Nadal
Let me just say you something
A healty at his best Rafa will beat everybody. At ich time on any surface
