No, I think Andy would have lost anyway in the final but it was Nadal who was in most disadvantages and I am actually speaking from his perspective. Nadal had just come from winning the Olympics and his route was essentially tougher than Federer at the US Open and the scheduling did not help Nadal’s case one bit. I had a very, very long argument with some of the Federer fans during this Open, so I very hardly forget. In fact, Nadal was getting the short end of the stick more often than not and it could boil anyone’s blood; that is if they were paying any attention. The reason why Nole was getting off the hook an awful lot was because he was constantly on Federer’s half so it made a difference in his case too. Then there are other players who did not get a very good deal when it came to scheduling time and again. It’s apparently Federer based on my observation who gets to most favour so he is and will always be the main target.
I was being sarcastic Emma Jean, not towards you might I add. Andy freely admits that he wasn't 'ready' for that final. My dig was at Fed, how he was fatigued to win the Olympic gold.
