With Novak and Rafa out, do you think they lost on purpose to protest or they just couldn't play on the surface? Rafa was really trying against Verdasco but I didn't see much fight from Novak.
There is no way that they intentionally lost. Novak just seems a little off his game suddenly. The blue stuff seems to play faster than the "red" clay. This surface seems to really suit Berdych - he could win this thing tomorrow.
I think it would be a good one today! Roger has lost a couple of big ones to Berdman plus those groundies.. It will be a great match as long as Roger doesn't get an early jump on him.
