He needs to practice against lefty, his opponent will be lefty for
sure.
He needs to get used to the lefty wide serve, lefty topspin, etc.

Where is Levine?

Agree. The Spaniards do seem to be a pretty tight bunch
though. (not suggesting conspiracy...)

why not ? if the shoe fits ?

afterall after taking a fall for Rafa in the SF Uncle Toni will allow
him to play games with Rafa on his PS3 and Fernando will be thrilled.

Moya and Lopes will also be there. Perhaps they will even have a
menage de quatre.

There was a thread yesterday where I made a case of Federer being
avoided playing Verdasco. Basically Fed played Verdasco only twice,
while Nadal played him 6 times and Roddick 10 times, respectively.

I always thought Verdasco was the perfect guy to help train Fed for
Rafa.

But Haze says he's already been bought and paid for by the other side.
