I think on clay was recently on Monte Carlo against Djokovic... but that last time besides that was against Fed at 2005 FO Semi? It would be exactly 10 years to the day on Nadal's 19th birthday...
Nah, I remember Fed being the 1st favourite for the title prior to the tournament, he won the last Masters Series in Hamburg just before the FO (Nadal didn't play) and he was already the dominant #1, Nadal was still a question mark if he can prolong his form to his 1st GS title (but he was the 2nd favorite right after Fed).I wouldn't say that he was the underdog against Federer in 2005. Prior to RG, he won Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Rome.
Well, the question was simply bookie's underdog. And Fed was bookie favourite, misguided or not, with @1,7 to @2,33.I wouldn't say that he was the underdog against Federer in 2005. Prior to RG, he won Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Rome.
