I'd like Fed to play Halle, that tournament says "Federer" from all angles.
But if he has a good run at RG, i'm ok with him not playing Halle.
I'd say the same I said before. I think Fed has a great chance of beating Novak. 60% chances for Fed right now.
He's playing great tennis, great tennis, and Novak, in the other hand, isn't the same as 2011. I don't think Novak 3.0 scares Fed, specially if Fed defeated the best Djokovic ever on clay.
Now... Nadal is a different thing, he defeated a really, really good Berdych today.
So, he's still my first choice for the Rome champion.
But, as we said in my country "Los partidos hay que jugarlos" (Matches should be played), and before the match ends, we don't know what's gonna happen. Surprises and upsets are posible.
You can play your best match one day and a crappy one next day (You can trust me, i'm a Tsonga fan, haha
