I've figured out -- Wimbledon was nothing less than a showdown of 2 Highlanders! And obviously, since the victory, Nadal took all the power that once belonged to Roger Federer, with a pending claim to supremacy not far behind.
Ok but c'mon, you try and provide a better answer to explain Ferderer over these last 2 tournaments! So the First Round exit at the Rogers Cup here in Toronto - as awful as it was for both organizers and fans alike being robbed of the much-anticipated Federer-Nadal rematch - was excusable for Roger since it was his first match post-Wimbledon epic battle to the death. However, after losing his Third Round match in the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters today to 16th seed Ivo Karlovic, his third loss in his past four matches mind you, then we enter question period. It's not too rash to reach this point either because Roger Federer does NOT lose 3 of 4 matches, EVER! Not to the best of the best in the tennis world, and certainly not to lower/unseeded players. Federer had become the Tiger of tennis, but even an injured Tiger still has what it takes to at least make it respectable at his tournaments (if not win it all). Therefore it's clear that something is rotten with Roger.
If Rafael Nadal takes this tournament Roger Federer, for the first time since February, 2004, will no longer claim the #1 Men's Seed. There Can Only Be One!
