Thats what I wonder too - hence what i said ..

Its bit like Becker / Stich thing at Wimbledon.

Whether they got on or spoke before Stichs win I dont know , but what
would you rather a slam , or friendly with the guy who does ?

If Verdasco can beat Nadal it could pose a really interesting scenario
come Wimbledon and US - esp the US

++ Does Verdasco have too much respect for Nadal? Does he think/
believe that he has the measure and method and means to take out
Nadal, a red hot Nadal? Simon will be looking to make that moot, of
course...

Verdasco served very well but Murray really dropped the ball on his
serve

To be honest I think he wasted too much time tiring himself out
chasing pointless shots i.e. when his returns did go in they were far
too short to kill yourself chasing over, and as result he was just
getting run silly.

He look far more tired in the end as result , probably affected that
service game he had after failing to break him in the 10 min slugfest
too.

Bad bad loss but not unexpected given how strong Verdasco served - be
interesting to see what happens if he faces Nadal .
