How bout the fact that this is a slower hard court?  That's Nads big advantage here.

I postponed my 10 mile jog thinking I would miss too much of this match, so now that I will give in and go for it, it should start shortly lol I could've gone twice since Isner won the first tiebreaker...this also probably means Rafa will lose since I bet on him AND wasted most of my day around the house on behalf of the match.

Match will be either on tape from 1st ball OR live if it is still early. Hang in there.. Confusing for us, too!

Sorry, rain spitting again in desert. No Imminent start to Federer/Nadal. On the upside, "Brick House" is playing on the PA.

Thing about Fed is he preys on weakness, doesn't love being challenged by someone with confidence....Yesterday when Del Po was throwing a fit, didn't affect Fed in the slightest...

It would have got in the head of a lot of players, but not Fed.
