For the eternal optimist it is nice to see Roger back in a final against Rafa. Rafa has been looking forward to it too. From a recent interview with a Spanish newspaper. Lets hope he is right!
"When I beat Roger Federer in January, in Melbourne, in the final of the Australian Open, I felt an animal excitement. But afterwards, I felt an emptiness and a loneliness indescribable. As if I had no more aim/no more purpose. To me, Federer is still the number 1 in the world. I want to meet him again on court. I know he can beat me."
