Rafael Nadal's Post Match Interview
Like the guy said, He lost a match and the World continues to turn. But of course this is Sports and why would we appreciate Sports the way we do if events such as this did not occur? We are, have always been and shall ever be a blood thirsty Nation. Battle is in our Being, it's in our Souls it is why we play and it is why we watch to or more combatants go head to head.
You want someone to take down the Leader because nobody wants to see the same person win every time. Yes we love Nadal and it's not personal but when someone like Robin Soderling comes along and beats the favorite, it opens up the door. It's way many people won money at the Kentucky Derby a few weeks ago who bet on the 50-1 Shot. Because we love an underdog.
You can bet that had Federer & Nadal met once again in the Finals, there would have been plenty of people laying down cash on Federer to win. Not because they thought he would but because he would have been the Odds on Favorite to lose, which would have paid the biggest paycheck. For those who bet on Nadal to win, that would have yielded the least amount of money.
Now the Bet Makers are beginning to take money on Wimbledon. Will Nadal repeat as Defending Champion? Well I always get it wrong but this time around, I would say Nadal beating Federer last year is something that probably won't happen again.
I'd say Roger Federer will go into Wimbledon as the favorite even if he's Seeded #2. Why? Because Grass still is Roger's best surface and Nadal really didn't put a beating on Roger last year, it was a see-saw battle between them. I think now as I did then, that had Roger taken Nadal more seriously, he would have put more energy into winning but when he finally realized that Nadal was trying to win, it was too late. Roger is a front runner type Player.
He's not good coming from behind.
Don't be so sure that Federer will make it to the Finals either. This is Sports you know .......:o
