Saying this again here, in bold! For the first time in a while NO FEDAL in the semis!
Fed's loss ends a streak of 33 straights slam semi finals with either Fed or Nadal.
So since Australian Open 2004?
I really think this is the beginning of the end for Fedal. Federer is back to #1 but with so many points to defend you can't help but feel Novak will be back on top before long (indeed if Nole does win the USO he will go back to #1) and he is getting on now. And then Nadal has his injury problems.
Sure, they'll both be around for a while yet, but I think their dominance is over by now (largely thanks to Novak that) and by the end of 2013 it will be Novak and Andy contesting the majors.
