Here's Roger Federer + Rafael Nadal posing for pics before beginning play in their 23rd career meeting at the Sony Ericsson Open semifinals in Miami. Oh the possibilities!
Fast forward. Here's Fedal after Rafa dismantled a seemingly frustrated and error-prown Fed 6-3, 6-2. The match certainly did not live up to the lofty expectations but, in all honesty, it rarely can save the classic 2008 Wimbledon final. There's an interesting perspective here : Rafa getting the winner's treatment while Fed walks past alone, hands to head as he takes in this brutal loss. Even the raucous crowd chanting, "Ro-jah" (or something like that) couldn't get him going. The pair seem even further apart than the rankings might suggest after tonight.
Bring on Rafole, bitches.
