    My response to this is just "sigh" lol. It's like a retcon to return things back to "who is actually better" zzz. Oh well.

    Does Fuji have problems? Or maybe the summary makes it sound funnier than...

    Novak is prone to slow starts these days. Same thing happened VS berdych and he still won playing at a lower level than he did VS nadal.

    That said...methinks he finds another way to lose Roland...

    Murray made it interesting this time...the first two sets seemed tight (didn't watch..expected a beating) but Novak does the IW/Miami double for a 3rd time and a 2nd consecutive time. 7-6(3),4-6,6-0
