Yeah, but I wouldn't expect Nadal to be seeded #2 at Wimbledon this year. OTOH, Roland Garros is a completely different tournament which Nadal has OWNED for how many years!!! There's no way Rafa should have been seeded #3 at Roland Garros. Apparently, that was just wishful thinking by the French and NBC. IOW, hoping Nadal either wouldn't make it to the semis, or that he'd be knocked out by Nole in the semis. FAT CHANCE! As far as Mac being in love with Nadal. I do believe Mac likes Nadal more than Carillo. And they both have shown Nadal grudging respect over the years. But seriously, in the early years of Federer vs Nadal, they completely favored Federer over Nadal. The favoritism and dismissiveness toward Nadal has been very obvious over the years. I think Mac couldn't help but begin to respect and like Nadal because of Nadal's true grit and the way Nadal has never given up, and because Nadal has proven time and time again that he's a champion with heart. Still there have been plenty of dismissive comments by both Mac and Carillo (especially Carillo) toward Nadal. Mac is just a little bit less biased than Carillo. Last year Carillo was doing a lot of silly talk about Nadal not being elegant enough. Usually when Carillo makes such dufus remarks, Mac takes the high road. Still, they both clearly favor Novak over Nadal, now that Federer is no longer at the height of his elegant dominance. Perhaps Mac isn't as enamored of Roger the way he used to be because Mac's critical of the way Roger has not worked very hard on adapting and changing his game in order to stay on top. Seems to me that Mac and NBC were interested in seeing Tsonga make the final because of the occasion and venue, and also because they may have felt if Novak got past Nadal, the final would be entertaining but not necessarily that difficult for Novak to win. Novak is the current apple of their eyes. It would have been entertaining to see a final with either Novak/ Federer, or Novak/ Tsonga, or Rafa/ Federer, or Rafa/ Tsonga, but obviously Novak vs Nadal was the EPIC final that happened in the semis.
