[quote]Also, let's not forget that if not for a pulled back in january in the final, Nadal probably would have become the first person since the 60's, and only the second male ever, to win each slam at least twice. That's pretty much the opposite of someone who can be labeled a one court specialis...

While I still expect Nadal to win, this is looking like a 3+ hour match. Not great for Nadal since he has to play again tomorrow. Dropping the first set each match is going to take a toll on him in the later rounds....
