Who would have thunk it, these two being the dominant men in 2017, each patched together by surgeons, borne aloft on a gusting second wind? "The tennis doesn't change that much".

"If I am in semifinals, I prefer to play against another [player]" Nadal said. "That's why I think it's open for us eight".
