I have the same feeling.
And believe me I drooled to watch this show. Nadal played systematically crossed on the backhand of roger with a big lift and it worked every time
Nadal preferred to play Roger than any other player. It was simple for him: it was enough that he respected and followed his tactics and the turn was played.
Often the fed nadal was disappointing and it was very futile for me.
At each game start I was hoping then it was resignation after. I was really struggling to watch their duel.
Each time it was the same thing.
And there it is the same: the same tactic always paying.
Big psychological blockage.
But today even before the game started I knew higgins would pass.
Saw how ronnie played during the week I really thought he was unlucky today to win
