I can't remember the last draw, especially Grand Slam, where he was in Nadal's half of the draw

RG '06, '08, '10 (of course) :p but yeh, apart from that, it goes back to W '07 and USO '07.
In last 5 years Djokovic and Federer are 90% and more of the time on same side on every tournament.
It should be close to 50 % and it's not even close, everone who knows elementary things from math know it can't be random.

yea this is pretty annoying. The funny thing is that it doesn't seem to matter what their ranking is.

Fed #1, Nole #3 and they were always in the same half.
Fed #2, Nole #3 same half
Fed #3, Nole #1 same half

I still don't believe draws are rigged, as it's statistically still very possible (independent chances, anyone?), but damn it is annoying to see Fed-Djoko in the same half all the time. :sigh:

People do realize that the only to guarantee Fed and Rafa on the same side of a draw is to fix it, right?
People do realize the tv ratings are by far the highest when Nadal/Federer play in the final so they have incentive to fix it for Nadal/Federer on opposite halfs, right?

The organizers still live in the past and subscribe to the myth that a Fedal final is in tennis' interest. What this elite cabal doesn't realize is that it's subconsciously masochistic, as they want to see nadal manhandle fed in a violent and predictable way. It is a fetish of the highest order. Stop sniffing their jocks organizers!

Because Nole is (1) and Fed is (3). Or vise versa :)
And Rafa, Muzza are (2) and (4).


I just don't know why they were drawn in the same half when they were (2) and (3). :confused:

I suspect some of the organizers are truly obsesed with a Fedal final. And they will do whatever it takes to make it happen.

They have been in the same half in Miami and Madrid and the outcome was predictable. It sucks for Rafa b/c Federer or Tsonga stand no chance against him healthy. Murray will beat him.
