He beat Nadal in the Us open 2008.
Anyway, I was sure Murray was going to win, I don't know why. I am quite happy that happened, now even if Federer loses he will still remain No.1. I am quite surprised that Murray beat Djoko in straight sets though. I expected it to be closer. Since the Frech Open this year I have been predicting Murray matches correctly. Federer vs Murray rematch is awesome. It is also great that the final is the best out of 5. It will benefit Federer much more than Murray. This not a grandslam so I think Murray has big chance to win this. My prediction is Federer wins Murray in 5 sets. Would not be surprised if Murray wins because Federer just played the longest 3 set match ever which took a lot out of him. He could be really tired on Sunday which would benefit Murray.
On the Fed vs Potro, Potro's forehand was so good. He was hitting stunning shots in the match. He was outclassing Federer in the first set. Second set was even but Potro was dominating the long rallies. Last set was brilliant, both players were producing great tennis. Potro could have won. Federer could not break for shit. He had so many break points and only converted 2. The match should ended when Fed was serving for the set in 10-9. He should have not let Del Potro break him. Still I am happy Federer won. I hope this means Del Potro is coming back to his best.
I am hoping he gets the bronze. Which he can if he plays like he did against Federer and Djokovic doesn't turn up.
On women topic. Serena is playing so well right now. Destroyed the world no.1, no one can stop her. Sharapova won't be able to beat her. Sharapova still has a small chance of winning this. At least I hope Maria doesn't get thrashed by Serena like the others has been.
In doubles, Tsonga and Llodra beat Ferrer and Lopez, last set they won 18-16. They are going face Bob and Mike bryan in the final.
Edit: I just want to say something else. Djokovic seems to be going back to his pre-2011 form. It seems that 2011 was just a golden year for him and it seems that he will never be able to play at that level ever again. That is why Federer, Murray and Nadal has beaten him this year with no much trouble. Something they found really, really very hard last year. I fully expect Nadal to overtake Djokovic by the end of this year.
