    Oh, Tsonga is also returning in Miami...interesting.

    I think he choked in the 3rd set and allowed that tiebreak to happen last year too.

    I don't either (there's plenty...like people thinking brackets rigged fed/nole to always play in the semis to ensure a federer nadal final etc etc). I just think it's an interesting coincidence.

    It's not as apparent..but Nadal, like Federer, is getting old. He said so himself (in tennis years anyway). Last year showed that the inconsistency that comes with age is creeping in.
