Rafa was good Today but there is nothing inevitable about him nor Novak, still they are serial slam winners and have to be put ahead of Andy.
We still dont have a good idea of Andy's form yet, but given the way his draw luckily opened up thats unsurpising.
Certainly he's played enough Tennis already to be prepared & should have plenty of physical & mental energy for the days ahead. So I expect nothing less than the extraordinary from him in the coming days & he's going to need it.
There is actually one thing
inevitable about Rafa and the new Nole ----- they both fight for every point and never give up. I thought Rafa really showed this today in the 4th set when serving for the match and going down break points. It could have been oh so different if he had allowed Federer the break.
Andy has been lucky in the way that his draw opened up but it means nothing as he is still faced with the W.no.1 and hopefully, no.2 in the final.
It'll be everything x'd...along with a bottle of Valium and a safe seat behind the sofa for me tomorrow Let's hope the Lendl factor kicks in and he does what he did to Llodra and body smash Djokovic off the court
That would be aggressive enough play for me
