Subject: Players' opinions on Nadal's recovery for the final
*Rafael Nadal*

"Little bit unlucky. Don't know how I gonna be for the final. I gonna
try my best for sure for recover my body and my physical performance.
But, you know, after one match like this, the next days you feel much
heavier, no?"



*Fernando Verdasco*

"Is also a pity that, you know, now for Rafa for sure that he won the
match that he played that long match for the final, when Roger played
one day before and a much shorter match.

You know, is really a pity. I want him to be 100% to play that final"

(snip)

"but I think, for sure, the semifinals supposed to be the same day, both
semifinals, because I think, you know, is the most fair for everybody,
no? Because like right now, yesterday Federer play three sets, and today
Rafa play five sets, five hours, and he will have one day less, and with
a semifinal much longer."

(snip)

"I didn't know that Federer was playing yesterday. I thought that
yesterday was playing only girls, and today two semifinals. When I saw
that he was playing yesterday, I was a little bit in shock. I was like,
Why he's playing one day before us? He will have much recover, and in
the final he will have a little bit more of advantage because he had one
day more."


*Roger Federer*

"but I don't think it's really going to affect Rafa that much. He's had
very easy matches going into this semifinal.

Okay, he has a day less. But, look, I mean, you got to be fit and
recover from this kind of a match. I think he will, even though he took
a while. His matches usually take longer than other matches because he
takes his time out on the court. I don't think he will be really
affected on Sunday."

What Federer is saying here is that he's not objective.

I think I've watched maybe 75% of Rafa's matches these two weeks so I can't
be certain about this but it seems to me he's speeded up the time he takes
between serves a lot now. As I said, I've not watched every second of his
matches, it looks like he has not got a time violation warning in this
event? Anyone confirm?

I think he already used less time between points last year. I don't
know if he is still within the rules, but seems to be faster than
before.

He didn't get them before either.

Meaning that he could easily go through a tournament like AO even
before without getting a time warning.

You can't make a draw so that everyone plays a similar opponent all
the time. That Nadal's match took 5 hours is no reason to complain.
The thing that there is to complain is that the semis were played on
different days.

The match would have been over in 3 hours if he served on time.

So yes, it's his fault.

It will be a travesty if Fed steamrolls because Nadal's legs are dead for
the final.

Hey fitness is part of the game. Nobody gave Fed extra rest when he
had mono. Rafa won Wimbledon last year by playing a mono'ed Fed in the
dark and even then just barely. Geez.
