I ask this question because of the way nadal perform at the end of the season and the fact that novak was below par on hardcourts this season fed had his worse season in a decade and he didn't play murray ??
Of course it was. Nole was disgraceful yet barely lost Montreal and should have won US Open 3rd set. The fact Dull has any wins on grass or HC is a disgrace.
More cheating is ahead with the change of balls at AO now. They don't even try and hide the manipulation. Good players like Nole, Fed and even injured Darcis don't need luck, mind games or everything to be in their favour.
50% injured Nole destroyed peak HC Nadal in 2011 and barely walking Nole schooled him at AO 2012. It's not rocket science.
