Miami: Quite a Lot Like Indian Wells

Posted by gauloises1 on April 3, 2010

So correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this all oddly familiar?

Rafa, the only member of the top four still standing, loses in the semifinals after looking well-nigh unbeatable earlier in the tournament.

Robin Soderling bashes and batters his way to the semifinals, only to then lose in straight sets quite tamely.

Andy Roddick is in the finals, a bit surprisingly, and will play an even more surprising opponent, in this case Tomas Berdych, who started this tournament at 125-1.

I’m pretty sure I can see nostril hair.

    Now that you mention it, it *does* seem eerily similar. Let’s hope for a different ending.

    Or, maybe like IW the player who beat Rafa in the semis will beat the player who beat Sod in the semis. *That’s* a similarity I’d be okay with.
