Two players who both were world best in the past but after amazing season for Novak Djokovic they must be satisfy with second and third ATP positions.
So, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal today in semi of Indian Well for the 32nd time against each other. At first look Spanish player was very dominant in this match up that is one of the greatest match up ever in in the men's tennis. But his dominance was only due to the score on claycourt where he won 13 out of 15 matches. On fast surfaces, the score was tied with eight wins foe both of them. So, when it was not on clay they were very close and in 16 such meetings even 11 times over games was the right choice.
I think the same for today's match. Both had many great and only few bad moments in previous rounds. For Federer who clearly plays much better than in 2011 the bad moment happend against Dmitrov (very bad first set) while for Nadal it was yesterday against Nalbandian when he barely won in three sets. Nalbandian was great in these last couple days but given on fact how much tough matches Argentinian has played earlier, Nadal should win yesterday with much less problems.
So, it is possible that we will see ups and downs from both players today what is good since then even three sets match is very possible.
