Oh my god, what the hell? I thought the match was going to start later. FUCK! I'm so stupid, didn't realise the match started earlier. I should have checked the timing properly, dammmmit!
Anyway, it's really worrying with the way Federer is playing atm, this looks really bad. Ever since the Aussie Open, he hasn't been playing at his usual standard. Lost to Julien in straight sets in Amsterdam, lost to Berdych after wasting three match points in Dubai and now he has been beaten very comfortably by Nadal(although tbf for this match, he's been having some back problem) who just came back a month ago from a very long injury. If you compare this with the way he was playing around this time last year, you would realise that there is actually a huge difference. Last year he was playing so much better, it is unbelievable really.
Now there is a possibility for Murray to overtake Federer in the rankings if he makes into the final. And even if he doesn't, he will probably do it later anyway because Federer actually has a 2 months break now so by the time Federer comes back from his break, Murray will No.2 unless he gets injured or screws up somehow. I was expecting Murray to overtake Federer in the rankings but wasn't expecting that to happen this quick.
I really hope this break can help him or something because he hasn't been good recently and that's worrying.
