I know, but I kind of feel that when it comes to playing in the best-of-five format, they have an advantage. And to win a Slam either one of the big 4 would probably have to beat 2 of the 3 remaining players, and I'm not sure Roger would be able to pull it off in a row
Like I said, we'll have to wait and see. Novak arguably played really poor in Cincy final (I mean a bagel, seriously?
), and even with that game managed to push it to an interesting tie-break... Anyway, with everything that's been going on the only sure thing is: AO will be one hell of a tournament
