Rafa vs Roger in quarter finals, chance in Indian Wells


If everything goes fine without any upsets in the early rounds to the top seeds, there is a possibility that the ultimate rivalry can continue. 2nd seed Roger Federer and 5th seed Rafael Nadal are in the same group, and the showdown may happen in the round of 8. It would be great treat if they meet after long time. ūüôā
